To help settle the 2021 Range Rover Evoque vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee debate that continues to excite drivers around Baton Rouge, Gonzales, and Lafayette, the team at Land Rover Baton Rouge has developed this informative comparison. Each SUV comes with a range of appealing features, yet there are differences when you begin to look at the styling, technology, and luxury of both models.

These are a few of the traits we'll discuss in the upcoming paragraphs. So, to determine whether the Range Rover Evoque or the Jeep Grand Cherokee is better suited to your needs, keep reading!

2021 Evoque vs Grand Cherokee: Interior & Exterior Styling

While both SUVs tout impressive styling, the Range Rover Evoque is on another level than the Jeep Grand Cherokee thanks to its sublime pairing of elegance and sophistication.

It starts with the shape of the Range Rover Evoque. The design is smooth and stately, highlighted by a flowing roofline, rising waist, muscular shoulders, and formidable wheel arches. The slim, signature LED headlights will provide searing illumination at any time of night.

The interior is equally refined. A few of the materials you'll find adorning the cabin include perforated Windsor leather and Ebony grained leather. There's also the addition of ambient interior lighting, which can be manually adjusted to better set the mood for your travels.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee, on the other hand, offers favorable traits like signature headlamp lighting but doesn't match the ambiance of the Range Rover Evoque!

Range Rover Evoque vs Jeep Grand Cherokee: Off-Road Capability

The Range Rover Evoque and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are two titans in the off-roading section of the automotive world, yet the Evoque does just enough to win out in this head to head.

To start, the Range Rover Evoque touts the Terrain Response® 2 system which monitors your current driving conditions and selects a driving mode to improve traits such as control and traction. This works in unison with available features like Adaptive Dynamics and Configurable Dynamics. Essentially, you can alter various aspects of the SUVs performance using the touchscreen. Everything from the gearbox shift points and the steering settings to the suspension and throttle mapping can be configured to your liking.

What really separates the Range Rover Evoque from the Jeep Grand Cherokee, however, is the ClearSight Ground View, which displays obstacles or objects residing directly below the front underside of the SUV. It's basically as though you're looking through the hood out into the world around you!

Evoque vs Grand Cherokee: In-Cabin Technology

Lastly, we come to the in-cabin technology, a clear strength for the Range Rover Evoque when pitted against the Jeep Grand Cherokee and most other SUVs.

To start, the Touch Pro™ Duo comes with a pair of 10-inch high-definition touchscreen displays. There's also the 12.3-inch high-definition Interactive Driver Display. This setup easily tops the 8.4-inch display in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, yet the Range Rover Evoque also includes traits like:

  • Head-Up Display
  • InControl® Remote App
  • 3D Navigation

There's a noticeable gap between these two SUVs' surround sound systems, too. The high-end option in the 2021 Grand Cherokee is from Harman Kardon®. While the Jeep setup is pleasant, the technology of the Meridian™ Surround Sound System in the Evoque provides a concert-like audio experience. A few of the technologies that help this stereo setup shine include Digital Signal Processing, Meridian Cabin Correction, Trifield™ technology, and Meridian Digital Dither Shaping.

Standard Safety Equipment

Style and adventure draw in a lot of people when they're searching for the right SUV. And while driving a good-looking, fun-loving model is a real plus each day, you also want a vehicle that will help keep you and your passengers safe in myriad driving scenarios.

 Nowadays, driver-assistance technology has become ubiquitous in the automotive world. Both the 2021 Range Rover Evoque and the Jeep Grand Cherokee offer driving aids with some level of semi-autonomous capability. The biggest difference is that you can enjoy many of these features standard in every Evoque, whereas the Grand Cherokee requires that you move well up the trim list.

The entire list of standard driver-assistance features in the Range Rover Evoque is a long one: 360° Surround Camera, Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter, Emergency Braking, Cruise Control and Speed Limiter, Driver Condition Monitor, Lane Keep Assist, and Front and Rear Parking Aid.

The 360° Surround Camera is technology that often wows drivers on their first test run of the Range Rover SUV. The ability to view the entire world around you when in a dense parking lot or trying to pull out of your driveway is invaluable.

Emergency Braking, which doesn't come standard with the Jeep, gives you confidence in knowing your Range Rover Evoque will come to a stop if you're unable to do so in time.

Another feature in the Jeep you'll have to move up trim levels for is the Lane Keep Assist setup, something you get in all Range Rover Evoque SUVs. Lane Keep Assist won't intervene if you're changing lanes with your turn signal on. However, if you begin to veer out of the lane lines without engaging the blinker, you'll be alerted so you can properly reposition your vehicle.

Finally, Traffic Sign Recognition, which isn't offered in any version of the 2021 Grand Cherokee, is a technology that alerts you to changing road conditions. If the speed limit has suddenly decreased, for example, you'll see a small icon appear on the bottom of your windshield, providing this important information. It will alert you to stop signs and many other important traffic indicators as well.

Basically, the 2021 Range Rover Evoque is always looking out for your well-being.

2021 Range Rover Evoque Comes Out on Top

The 2021 Range Rover Evoque gets the nod over the Jeep Grand Cherokee as it offers drivers in Baton Rouge, Gonzales, and Lafayette superior luxury, capability, and styling.
