The SRT is able to make a statement both during the day and at night, making this car stand out from the rest of the crowd. The enviable road presence is increased by the signature, blacked-out adaptive bi-xenon headlamps combined with the stunning LED arrangement. The look is completed with rear LED's and black surrounds. The rear visibility is improved courtesy of the one-touch tail gate which also offers convenience and ease of operation. The sporty styling is completed by the 20" SRT black vapour alloy wheels.
The Grand Cherokee SRT is available in a choice of eight different external colours; Velvet Red, Brilliant Black, Redline, Ivory White, Granite Crystal, Billet Silver, Bright White and Maximum Steel.
The Grand Cherokee SRT has many interior features which make this car great. The leather SRT Steering wheel which has a flat bottom features paddle shifters for manual gear changes, the Harman Kardon sound system with an 825 watt amp creates the perfect sound experience in the SUV. The system features 19 speakers which all have Active Noise Cancellation which is used to reduce the effect of outside noise.
Performance & Handling
The 6.4L V8 HEMI engine delivers a staggering 468 hp through the eight-speed automatic transmission. You can climb up and down the gears with steering wheel controls or you can use the electronic automatic shift mode. The Eco Mode and Fuel Saver Technology are both used to give both power and efficiency at the same time.
You can adjust the driving settings by using the Selec-Track System which enables the driver to control suspension, torque distribution, shift schedule, stability control and engine mapping. Both comfort and sprint are included in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT driving experience.
The new custom drive mode provides added control to the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. A lowered ride height, stiffer spring rates, robust anti-roll bars and cambered front and rear wheels all help the Grand Cherokee SRT achieve an impressive .90g lateral acceleration figure on the skidpad, when equipped with the sticky P Zero tyre option.
Performance can be measured in many ways, one way for which it can't be overlooked is how the power is controlled. This is achieved through the air-cooled 6 piston Brembo brake calipers which combined with the large rotors help to achieve 60-0 stopping distance of approximately 116 feet (depending on road conditions). The Pirelli P-Zero tyres provide further grip and control.
The 8.4" UConnect touchscreen provides a performance page where you can view statistics such as; dynamic handling, braking, engine horsepower, engine torque and acceleration. The system will track what's happening with digital gauge's that relay battery voltage, oil pressure, coolant and air intake temperature.
