Land Rover Performance

While Jeep SUVs are known for their capable off-roading performance, many drivers in West Windsor have come to count on Land Rover performance SUVs for when they want to go off-roading in Princeton. See how Jeep and Land Rover SUVs compare when it comes to off-roading and engine performance with the help of your Hopewell-area Land Rover dealership.

Off-Roading Capabilities

Whether you’re looking at Land Rover Discovery off-roading or Jeep Renegade off-roading, both of these makes offer rugged all-terrain performance—even at the entry level. However, Land Rover generally wins out when it comes to off-roading innovation. It really comes down to your priorities, though. Here we’ll look at the rugged all-terrain drivetrains on the new Range Rover and Grand Cherokee.

Range Rover Off-Roading:

  • All-Terrain System: Terrain Response® 2 with Dynamic, Eco, Comfort, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud & Ruts, Sand, and Rock Crawl modes
  • Available Air Suspension
  • Available All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC)

Grand Cherokee Off-Roading:

  • All-Terrain System: Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System with Snow, Sand, Auto, Mud, and Rock modes
  • Available Air Suspension
  • Available Crawl Control

On-Road Performance

Jeep and Land Rover SUVs are both offered with a wide range of turbocharged, V6, and V8 engine options, but Land Rover SUVs beat out Jeep SUVs when it comes to sporty on-road driving response. That’s because only Land Rover SUVs are offered with:

  • Adaptive Dynamics – Monitoring vehicle movements up to 500 times per second, Adaptive Dynamics is able to stabilize the vehicle, minimize body movement, and give drivers more control behind the wheel.
  • Dynamic Response – This feature improves handling while cornering through the use of a hydraulic roll control feature that controls the front and rear axles independently.
