The best performing on-road Jeep vehicle ever, the Grand Cherokee SRT, continues to inherit the proven and powerful 6.4-liter V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 475 horsepower. Performance includes 0-100 km’/h acceleration in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 256 km/h. The engine is paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission
On the exterior, the Grand Cherokee SRT sports its signature, seven-slot upper grille with black screen insert flanked by slimmer, adaptive, bi-xenon headlamps that are surrounded by a signature LED character treatment. The headlights on the SRT feature a unique black background to distinguish the vehicle from the Grand Cherokees while further accenting their jewel-like appearance.
Inside the Grand Cherokee SRT, there are the three-pronged instrument cluster with a 300 km/h speedometer at dead center, along with 7-inch digital display and the leather-wrapped, flat-bottomed steering with the unmistakable SRT emblem and paddle shifters.
In addition, drive modes separately control the all-wheel drive system, transmission, paddle shifters, stability control, suspension and steering. Drive modes are pre-configured for Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow settings via a mode select switch on the center console, while the Custom setting lets the driver customize the drive experience to their favorite settings.
The standard massive Brembo brakes on the Grand Cherokee SRT ensures an amazing stopping power, despite the relative kerb weight of the SRT, Meanwhile, standard launch control mimics a professional driver’s inputs to optimize Grand Cherokee SRT’s performance by bringing engine, transmission, driveline, stability control, and suspension in line for a textbook launch. Controlled by a button behind the new polystable shifter on the center console, the result is improved and more consistent straight-line acceleration.
The Grand Cherokee SRT rides on a short- and long-arm (SLA) independent front suspension with coil springs, Bilstein adaptive damping suspension (ADS), upper- and aluminum lower-control arms, aluminum knuckle, aluminum clevis and hollow stabilizer bar. The rear suspension is a multi-link design with coil spring, Bilstein ADS, aluminum lower control arm, independent upper links (tension and camber), plus a separate toe link, and a hollow stabilizer bar.
