The Patriot is Daimler's heritage to their ownership of Jeep. Mercedes ML SUVs were equipped with Jeep patented NV247. A first in Jeep's history, known to not to share their designs in traction. The top of the line Daimler serious off-roader, sports solid axle and multi-link suspension derived from the Grand Cherokee. They bought Chrysler, went away with Jeep's heritage, and left us with grocery getters.

The Mercedes G-Wagen was around well before they were in bed with Jeep. It is a more capable vehicle than any Jeep off the showroom floor.
