Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT


As the Jeep Cherokee SRT gets ready for its big debut int he British market, where it’s least likely to win a major customer base, Chrysler released details of the British version.

The Cherokee might not be a very bright car, but this version is something special. The SRT reaches unparalleled levels of standard equipment in its category, offering Command-View dual-pane sunroof, Uconnect Navigation infotainment and navigation system, state-of-the-art 825 watt audio surround-sound system from Harman Kardon, Adaptive Cruise Control and a variety of advanced safety systems including Forward Collision Warning and Blind-Spot detection with Rear Cross-path detection.

But all that is nothing compared to the engine. The V8 powertrain delivers 461 bhp (344 kW) and 624 Nm of torque and is fitted to the proven five-speed automatic transmission featuring both steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. It does 0 to 60 in five seconds and tops out at 160. Impressive for something this big.
