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 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

Both the Range Rover and Grand Cherokee SRT have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Range Rover has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The Grand Cherokee SRT’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The Range Rover’s optional lane departure warning system alerts a temporarily inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to leave its lane. The Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer a lane departure warning system.

The Range Rover offers an optional Surround Camera System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Grand Cherokee SRT 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.

Both the Range Rover and the Grand Cherokee SRT have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, blind spot warning systems and rear cross-path warning.

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 Grand Cherokee SRT 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 Grand Cherokee SRT, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Range Rover has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Range Rover’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

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 Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Range Rover’s wheelbase is .2 inches longer than on the Grand Cherokee SRT (115 inches vs. 114.8 inches). The Range Rover LWB’s wheelbase is 8 inches longer than on the Grand Cherokee SRT (122.8 feet vs. 114.8 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover is 2.1 inches wider in the front and 1.6 inches wider in the rear than on the Grand Cherokee SRT.

The Range Rover’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (48% to 52%) than the Grand Cherokee SRT’s (55% to 45%). This gives the Range Rover more stable handling and braking.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 3.3 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Grand Cherokee SRT (11.6 vs. 8.3 inches), allowing the Range Rover to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Land Rover Range Rover may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 250 pounds less than the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.

The front grille of the Range Rover Diesel uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

Pressing a switch automatically lowers or raises the Range Rover’s rear seats, to make changing between cargo and passengers easier. The Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Range Rover’s cargo door can be opened and closed just by waving your foot, leaving your hands completely free.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the Grand Cherokee SRT, the Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography offers an optional 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 offers an optional heads-up display which projects speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

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

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 Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer secondary sun visors.

The Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography has standard front air conditioned seats and offers them optionally in the rear. This keeps the passengers comfortable and takes the sting out of hot seats in Summer. The Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer air conditioned seats in the rear.

Standard InControl Apps for the Range Rover allows the driver and passengers access to select programs on their smartphones, including playing internet radio stations and other connected activities without taking their eyes off the road or their hands from the wheel. The Grand Cherokee SRT doesn’t offer factory integrated smartphone program access.

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