If you're looking for an SUV worthy of all the challenges you plan on throwing its direction as you make your way around Baton Rouge, Gonzales, Lafayette, and beyond, the 2020 Land Rover Discovery and Jeep Grand Cherokee are likely to be close to the top of your list.

Our team here at Land Rover Baton Rouge has placed both these prominent SUVs side by side so you can narrow down your search even more. Take a brief moment to read through the following 2020 Land Rover Discovery vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee comparison to find out which one will come out on top.

2020 Land Rover Discovery vs Jeep Grand Cherokee: Convenient Characteristics

While both these SUVs have a plethora of conveniences, the Discovery manages to pull ahead of the Grand Cherokee in this area. For instance, the Discovery gives you the opportunity to stow more during the drive with its maximum cargo volume of 83.7 cubic feet. The most the Jeep Grand Cherokee allows is 68.3 cubic feet.

In the event you're in need of a sport utility vehicle that can hold its own in terms of towing, the 2020 Land Rover Discovery has your back with a maximum towing capacity of 8,201 pounds. Here, the Jeep Grand Cherokee again falls short. The most it can tow is 7,200 pounds.  

One particularly convenient feature you'll find available in the Discovery but not the Grand Cherokee is the powered gesture tailgate. This feature makes loading objects into the vehicle a lot easier and acts as a handy platform when tailgating during sporting events.

Discovery vs Jeep: Supportive Technology and Safety Features

This day and age, technology is an important element of the overall driving experience and needs to be entirely accessible while it keeps you connected and informed.

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery accomplishes this with its standard 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display that lets you easily see and use your dashboard controls. Coupled with the Interactive Driver Display is a Touch Pro™ dual touchscreen arrangement that features a pair of high-definition 10-inch screens.

The available touchscreen in the Grand Jeep Cherokee is a lot smaller with far less accessibility at just 8.4 inches.

Safety is another vital category. One standard Land Rover Discovery feature definitely worth mentioning because of the reassurance it's able to provide is the Land Rover InControl® Remote & Protect™ app. It automatically notifies emergency services if you've been involved in an accident in which the airbags have deployed. This feature is not available in the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

2020 Land Rover Discovery vs Jeep Grand Cherokee: Which Will You Choose?

With its superior convenience, technology, and safety features, the Discovery is clearly the superior choice over the Grand Cherokee.
