For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Land Rover Range Rover have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision. The Chevrolet Tahoe doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Range Rover. But it costs extra on the Tahoe.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the Range Rover’s standard Hill Descent Control allows you to creep down safely. The Tahoe doesn’t offer Hill Descent Control.

The Range Rover offers an optional Surround Camera System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Tahoe only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

For better protection of the passenger compartment, the Range Rover uses safety cell construction with a three-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment. It provides extra impact protection and a sturdy mounting location for door hardware and side impact beams. The Tahoe uses a body-on-frame design, which has no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.

Both the Range Rover and the Tahoe have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

The Range Rover comes with a full 4 year/50,000 mile basic warranty, which covers the entire truck and includes 24 hour roadside assistance. The Tahoe’s 3 year/36,000 mile basic warranty expires 1 year and 14,000 miles sooner.

The Range Rover’s 6 year corrosion warranty has no mileage limitations, but the corrosion warranty on the Tahoe runs out after 100,000 miles.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the Range Rover 3.0 Supercharged’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Tahoe doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The Range Rover has 1.7 gallons more fuel capacity than the Tahoe (27.7 vs. 26 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Range Rover’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Tahoe’s optional 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the Tahoe LS/LT.

For superior ride and handling, the Land Rover Range Rover has fully independent front and rear suspensions. An independent suspension allows the wheels to follow the road at the best angle for gripping the pavement, without compromising ride comfort. The Chevrolet Tahoe has a solid rear axle, with a non-independent rear suspension.

The Range Rover has standard front and rear stabilizer bars, which help keep the Range Rover flat and controlled during cornering. The Tahoe’s suspension doesn’t offer a rear stabilizer bar.

The Range Rover Supercharged/Autobiography has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The Tahoe doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Tahoe, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Range Rover’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Tahoe doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The Range Rover Supercharged handles at .79 G’s, while the Tahoe LTZ 4x4 pulls only .75 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The Range Rover Supercharged executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.6 seconds quicker than the Tahoe LTZ 4x4 (26.7 seconds @ .71 average G’s vs. 28.3 seconds @ .62 average G’s).

The Land Rover Range Rover may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 450 pounds less than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

The Range Rover is 7.2 inches shorter than the Tahoe, making the Range Rover easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Unibody construction makes the Range Rover’s chassis much stiffer, which contributes to better handling, and enables softer springs to be used for a better ride. Unibody construction’s stiffness also contributes to better durability and less body squeaks and rattles. The Tahoe doesn’t use unibody construction, but a body-on-frame design.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the Tahoe LT/LTZ, the Range Rover has standard driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Range Rover’s front and rear power windows all open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Tahoe’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully.

On a hot day the Range Rover’s driver can lower all the windows using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Tahoe can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Range Rover has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Tahoe doesn’t offer headlight washers.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the Range Rover detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Tahoe doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Range Rover offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Tahoe doesn’t offer cornering lights.

To better shield the driver and front passenger’s vision, the Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography has standard dual-element sun visors that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The Tahoe doesn’t offer secondary sun visors.

The Range Rover’s optional Parallel Park can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Tahoe doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
