This is the racing version of the standard Jeep Grand Cherokee and SRT8 stands for Street and Racing Technology V8.
Its a high-performance-SUV, with an impressive list of features that is well suited for everyday driving and sits well to compete with your high-end luxury SUVs.
The SRT8 comes with upgraded Brembo brakes which don’t only look good, but provide you with world class braking power.
Add the LED DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS into the mix and you start to get the feeling this SUV is packing some serious heat under the bonnet.
The engine is a 6.4 liter HEMI V8 petrol, and it produces 344 kw of power and a mammoth 624 Nm of torque. Its a super fast SUV and goes from 0-100 km/h in blistering 4.8 seconds.
The transmission is a five-speed automatic, which permanently powers all four wheels. You also get steering wheel paddle shifters for taking the bull by the horns.
Standard features for the SRT8 include 20-inch alloy wheels, a navigation system with a 6.5-inch touch screen, cruise control, front side and curtain airbags, reversing camera, a nine-speaker audio system, heated and air conditioned seats and Sonar.
And a rear cross path system that alerts the driver of approaching traffic when backing out of a parking spot or a similar situation.
Inside the SRT8 you can find leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel and sport seats to enjoy the rough tracks better.
Add another 4k to the price and you get a dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a 19 speaker audio system.
Overall this is a stylish SUV, both inside and from the outside. It is easy to drive despite this huge engine but still able to unload fury when you need it too.
