Jeep vs. Land Rover

Orange Land Rover Discovery on BeachChicagoland drivers searching for a capable off-road SUV might have Jeep on the mind, but we think Land Rover does a better job with off-roading capabilities while giving drivers the height of luxury as well. Read on to see how Jeep and Land Rover SUVs compare on performance and capabilities for yourself.

Off-Roading Capabilities

We've already weighed the Land Rover Discovery vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee, but the truth is that you could pick any two vehicles -- a Jeep and a Land Rover -- and you'll find similar results. Both of these makes bring rugged all-terrain performance at the entry level, but Land Rover wins out in the big picture.

Look at the drivetrains on the new Range Rover and Grand Cherokee to see what we mean.

  • Range Rover: Terrain Response® 2 includes with Dynamic, Eco, Comfort, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud & Ruts, Sand, and Rock Crawl modes
  • Grand Cherokee: Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System with Snow, Sand, Auto, Mud, and Rock modes.

While they might look similar at a glance, the Range Rover system offers more terrain coverage and also integrates directly with the vehicles safety features, like Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Electronic Traction Control (ETC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Gradient Release Control (GRC), Hill Start Assist, and
Roll Stability Control (RSC).

On-Road Performance

You can weigh one engine against another against another, and the specs will vary, of course, but the way the vehicle handles those specs is what we're interested in. While Jeep has many models that can deliver similar horesepower and torque to a Land Rover, you will only find these performance features on the Land Rover SUVs:

  • Adaptive Dynamics – Monitoring vehicle movements up to 500 times per second, Adaptive Dynamics stabilizes the SUV to minimize body movement and keep you in control.
  • Dynamic Response – A hydraulic roll control feature manages the front and rear axles independently and improves handling while cornering.
