Ahhh, country in Ontario. Perfect for jet and wakeboarding in the summer, cross-country and maybe a bit of snowboarding in the winter (I say “a as I am a BC boy, where alpine are king…), maybe a hike or two and of time spent lakeside. way, a great road destination and escape from the jungle of Toronto.

It’s also SUV country, and in our diesel SUV country. If anything’s to challenge the fuel-misering chops of any vehicle, it’s cold-weather in November (seat and steering warmers blaring, heat up to 11) up into the whitening wilds of Ontario.

Mercedes-Benz ML II 350

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the models in the Dodge line-up to some of its chassis components a Mercedes product (from DaimlerChrylser was a thing), and that car to be the other car in this test, the M-Class.

These being family haulers, however, I many owners are ever to make much use of them.

These are both diesel however, so of particular interest is kind of fuel economy be getting. Mercedes claims 7.1 km on the highway for the ML and Jeep claims 7.0 for the Cherokee, so we were keen to out how close these vehicles come to these figures, considering the cold weather be facing and which is always a to diesel power.
