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 Suburban 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 Suburban.

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

The Range Rover’s optional driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Suburban doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

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 Suburban uses a body-on-frame design, which has no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.

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

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 Suburban’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 Suburban runs out after 100,000 miles.

For smoother operation, better efficiency and fewer moving parts, the engines in the Range Rover have an overhead cam design, rather than the old pushrod design of the engines in the Suburban.

To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the Range Rover has a standard 1600-amp battery. The Suburban’s 720-amp battery isn’t as powerful.

On the EPA test cycle the Range Rover P525 5.0 supercharged V8 (518 HP) gets better city fuel mileage than the Suburban 4WD with its standard V8 (16 city/21 hwy vs. 14 city/21 hwy).

The Range Rover P400e can drive on battery power alone for up to 31 miles. The Suburban must run its internal combustion engine to move.

Regenerative brakes improve the Range Rover’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Suburban doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the Range Rover’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 Suburban doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

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 Suburban’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 Suburban 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 Suburban 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 Suburban’s suspension doesn’t offer a rear stabilizer bar.

The Range Rover V8 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 Suburban 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 Suburban, 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 Suburban doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The Range Rover P525 HSE handles at .79 G’s, while the Suburban Premier 4WD pulls only .75 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The Range Rover P525 HSE executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.7 seconds quicker than the Suburban Premier 4WD (26.7 seconds @ .71 average G’s vs. 28.4 seconds @ .62 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Range Rover’s turning circle is 2.5 feet tighter than the Suburban’s (40.5 feet vs. 43 feet). The Range Rover LWB’s turning circle is .1 feet tighter than the Suburban’s (42.9 feet vs. 43 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 3.7 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Suburban (11.6 vs. 7.9 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 about 100 to 650 pounds less than the Chevrolet Suburban.

The Range Rover is 2 feet, 3.5 inches shorter than the Suburban, making the Range Rover easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Unibody construction lowers the Range Rover’s center of gravity significantly without reducing ground clearance. This contributes to better on the road handling and better off-road performance and stability. In addition, unibody construction makes the chassis stiffer, improving handling and reducing squeaks and rattles. The Suburban uses body-on-frame design instead.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the Suburban LT/Premier, the Range Rover 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’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The Suburban’s parking brake has to released manually.

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 Suburban’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to open or close them fully.

On a hot day the Range Rover’s driver can lower all the windows from a distance using the keyless remote. The driver of the Suburban can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Range Rover has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The Suburban doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.

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 Suburban doesn’t offer headlight washers.

Optional air-conditioned front and rear seats keep the Range Rover’s passengers comfortable and take the sting out of hot leather in summer. The Suburban doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats for the second row.

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