2020 Ranger Rover vs G550: Off-Road Driving Dynamics  

You'll have a lot of traction during acceleration with both the standard 4-wheel drive of the 2020 Range Rover and the standard all-wheel drive of the 2020 G550. When you're dealing with wet or slippery roads, these SUVs will rise to the challenge and keep you firmly planted on the pavement.

Those drivetrains are also ideal for off-roading, and the Range Rover and G550 have reputations as highly capable SUVs on all types of terrain. For the 2020 Range Rover, an electronic air suspension system is the standout feature. By using the touchscreen display, you can alter the ground clearance of your SUV by as much as 3.1 inches, an ability that's noticeably absent in the Mercedes-Benz G550.

Engine Performance Specs

A powerful SUV gives you the freedom to tow all your favorite toys to your weekend getaway destination, and the Range Rover and Mercedes G550 sport engines that are up to the job. But how much efficiency will you receive on your way to your destination? Well, the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover has a hybrid option that places efficiency as a top priority.

With the hybrid Range Rover engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission mated to it, your luxury SUV will receive an EPA-estimated 20 city/20 highway MPG.1

The Mercedes-Benz G550 Wagon doesn't place such a premium on efficiency, checking in at just 13 city/17 highway MPG.

Advanced Technology Features

If you're looking to stay connected on the go, you'll like the Wi-Fi® Hotspot the 2020 Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz G550 offer. It lets you connect multiple devices at once, so your passengers can surf the web, update social media, or get some work done on the road. Though any car comparison between these SUVs must acknowledge their success as far as infotainment.

The G550 model's COMAND® system and the Range Rover InControl® Touch Pro™ Duo system each offer standard navigation, so you can find your destination more easily with voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions. For the Mercedes SUV, you'll find a 12.3-inch high-resolution center display along the dashboard. For the Land Rover Range Rover, it's a pair of standard, 10-inch high-definition screens that can work in unison or separately!
