Why does the world need a 6.4L Hemi-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee? Well for one thing, it’s senseless, and when a car is conceived in that fashion it’s bound to be polarizing. However, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a bit different, offering the best of every world without any of the compromises, which leads to a vehicle that can blow the doors off of sports cars while still retaining its all-weather family hauler guise. That experience alone makes this a blast to drive.
The primary feature of the Grand Cherokee SRT is its motor. The small block puts out an all American 475hp to a patriotic tune of 6000rpm as well as 465 lb-ft of torque to tow up to 7200 pounds. That power is channeled to a new 8-speed automatic which helps put power to all wheels to deliver a 0-60 time of only 4.5 seconds. Remain on the gas, and this brute can run the quarter mile in less than 12 seconds, which is astonishing for a vehicle of its size and nature.
Step inside the SRT and step into a well appointed leather and suede interior. Real carbon fiber is used throughout the dash and doors continuing the performance motif that has been established by its exhaust. To make sure you remain in place during a .90g turn, suede inserts have been provided for additional grip. In conjunction to the performance bits, the Grand Cherokee SRT is equipped to the brim with the latest technology, including Bluetooth, navigation, and even a performance meter.
Rent the Grand Cherokee SRT and make your next Lake Tahoe or Big Bear trip a lot more fun.
