MOBILE, Ala., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- What many car shoppers may not realize is how closely related both the Jeep and Land Rover nameplates are in the SUV market. Both automakers have earned meal tickets with consumers by creating vehicle options known for uncompromising off-road demeanor. However, as time when on, Jeep and Land Rover shifted efforts towards upscale luxury successfully to gain more market share. This unique combination of off-road worthiness and refinement created an inevitable battle that one Mobile, Alabama dealership is happy to address. Jaguar Gulf Coast, a branch of Joe Bullard Automotive located in Mobile, Alabama, has pitted the newly refreshed 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee against the Land Rover LR4 SUV in a comparison for consumers to view online.

At first glance, the 2014 Land Rover LR4 versus 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee take a very different approach on what an SUV should look like. The Land Rover LR4 uses classic British styling with squared-off edges and striking body lines compared to the Jeep Grand Cherokee's soft approach and rounded edges.

The differences in aesthetics however, seem to clash less inside of the SUV's cabins. With a higher focus on comfort and style, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has introduced select trim levels which cater to upscale needs. Leather seats, stylish accents and an abundance of helpful driving technology all allow the Jeep Grand Cherokee to be considered a luxury vehicle. Land Rover, a seasoned veteran in upscale class, offers a standard in-dash infotainment system, supple leather seats and contrasting dash accents all neatly arranged for complete comfort and drivability inside of its LR4 offering.

In addition to remaining one of the most luxurious SUVs of the market, the 2014 Land Rover LR4 available at Jaguar Gulf Coast in Mobile, Alabama also provides generous interior cargo volume. Compared to the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the LR4 offers 90 cubic-feet of space to the Jeep's 68.3 cubic-feet when the seats are folded. Further advantages available for Land Rover fans include 1,500 pounds more of available towing capability as well as the option for two additional passengers.

In terms of engine power, the scales tip towards the Land Rover LR4 once again with the comparison of standard V-6 engines. The Land Rover LR4 has eliminated its V-8 engine offering and shifted its efforts towards a lighter, more efficient, standalone turbocharged V-6 engine. Compared to the Jeep Grand Cherokee's 3.6-liter, V-6 engine, the LR4's 3.0-liter, V-6 engine creates approximately 50 more horsepower. Four-wheel drive is standard for the LR4 and an option for the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
