Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is the performance oriented 470 hp alternative of Grand Cherokee. SRT or Street & Racing Technology is a high-performance automobile group within Chrysler Group LLC. Grand Cherokee SRT has a 6.4L V8 engine dishing out 470 hp power output. It has ferocious exhaust note, endless torque on offer. It kicks out 465 lb.-ft. of torque from the normally aspirated diesel motor. The power is enough to pull 2336 kg Grand Cherokee SRT to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. It has SRT launch control, which enables it to do so in sub 5 seconds. It has an eight-speed transmission with paddle shifts and quicker shift speeds.
The interior is all black with silver details. You get an option of sepia Laguna as alternate interior trim. It has 8.4-inch touchscreen with SRT Performance Pages real time data. It has a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system with GreenEdge technology.
The Grand Cherokee SRT’s $70,000 all-in price tag might not radiate value, but consider this: It’s fully loaded, with features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and a 19-speaker sound system. Also, its closest competitors, the BMW X5 M and the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG, are nearly $100,000 and offer comparable performance, but aren’t nearly as well-equipped. So, Grand Cherokee SRT is not affordable but value for money to the audience it caters. It offers excellent ride and handling capabilities, which Jeep claims is best in class.
