There are almost 14 times as many Jeep dealers as there are Land Rover dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Grand Cherokee SRT’s warranty.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT’s engine uses a cast iron block for durability, while the Range Rover’s 3.0 supercharged V6, 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. hybrid and 5.0 supercharged V8 engine uses an aluminum block. Aluminum engine blocks are much more prone to warp and crack at high temperatures than cast iron.

To reliably power the ignition and other systems and to recharge the battery, the Grand Cherokee SRT has a standard 220-amp alternator. The Range Rover’s 150-amp alternator isn’t as powerful.

A reliable vehicle saves its owner time, money and trouble. Nobody wants to be stranded or have to be without a vehicle while it’s being repaired. Consumer Reports rates the Grand Cherokee SRT’s reliability 18 points higher than the Range Rover.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2019 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Jeep vehicles are more reliable than Land Rover vehicles.

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Grand Cherokee SRT’s fuel efficiency. The Range Rover doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

The Grand Cherokee SRT has 1.9 gallons more fuel capacity than the Range Rover Diesel’s standard fuel tank (24.6 vs. 22.7 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Grand Cherokee SRT has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Range Rover doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

The Grand Cherokee SRT’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Range Rover’s standard 65 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Grand Cherokee SRT has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 19-inch wheels are standard on the Range Rover.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the Grand Cherokee SRT can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The Range Rover doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

The Grand Cherokee SRT has a much larger cargo volume than the Range Rover with its rear seat up (36.3 vs. 31.8 cubic feet).

The Grand Cherokee SRT’s liftgate lifts up in one piece, completely out of the way of loading and unloading, while sheltering the cargo loading area. The Range Rover’s tailgate’s top part raises up, but the bottom part lowers, getting in the way of loading and making an uneven surface for sliding cargo.

The Grand Cherokee SRT’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The Range Rover does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The Grand Cherokee SRT’s power window, power lock, power mirror and cruise control switches are lit from behind, making them plainly visible and easier to operate at night. The Range Rover’s power mirror switches are unlit, making them difficult to find at night and operate safely.

The Grand Cherokee SRT has a standard heated steering wheel to take the chill out of steering on extremely cold winter days before the vehicle heater warms up. A heated steering wheel costs extra on the Range Rover.
