Drag Race: Tesla Model Y vs. BMW X3 M vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 63

Price and MPG Comparison: X3 M Competition vs. AMG GLC 63 S Coupe vs. Model Y

How much does it cost to get one of these ultra-quick luxury SUVs? Let’s find out.

X3 M Competition
The X3 M Competition ($83,845 MSRP as tested) takes the Competition part of its name seriously. It has almost no body roll in corners because of its stiff performance suspension. The trade-off is a harsh ride when you aren’t in the twisties. It’s a good thing the rest of the interior is big and comfortable. BMW reports there’s 62.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the X3 M.

Inside you’ll find the same infotainment system as the one in the standard X3. It has crisp graphics and a fairly intuitive and easy-to-use control knob. Wireless Apple CarPlay is included, and wireless charging and onboard Wi-Fi are options. Unfortunately, the system doesn’t support Android Auto smartphone

All the Other Names, Historically, for Jeep’s Grandest SUV

Every gearhead knows the Jeep Grand Wagoneer on sight—after all, its iconic 1960s-era styling barely changed during its 30-year production run, this despite Jeep having three different corporate owners (Kaiser, American Motors, and Chrysler) during its tenure.

Except it’s likely that the Grand Wagoneer you’re looking at isn’t actually a Grand Wagoneer, as that name was used for less than a third of the SJ-body‘s epic production run. Now that we’ve seen reveal of the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept, here are the other monikers that graced this big, beautiful SUV across its history.

Jeep Wagoneer, 1963-1983

The Grand Wagoneer nameplate didn’t appear until 1984, well more than 20 years after the SJ went into production. Originally, the full-size Jeep was marketed simply as the Wagoneer.
