Considering the major price difference between the two, I find it odd that they didn't compare the V6 model. It almost seems like they tried to stack the deck.
Same tranny in both, but maybe different softwear.I too looked at the Discovery. Loved the fit and finish, amenities, solidity of build, and smoothness. I could not justify the price diff (at that time), but seeing the issues arising among many samples of the Cherokee, and more than quirky tranny plunked in these things, I will definitely revisit the Land Rover when it comes time for my next vehicle.
Different softwear for sure, but the LR transmission is sourced from ZF and the Chrysler one is built by Chrysler under license.Same tranny in both, but maybe different softwear.
