Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Posted on Friday, April 22, 2011

The top version of new Jeep Grand Cherokee – SRT8 will appear in the summer of this year on roads of the North America. Outwardly the child of sport compartment Chrysler – Street and Racing Technology – will differ from the civil colleague a cowl with ventilating gills, more aggressive front bumper with light-emitting diodes of a natural light and the chromeplated inserts, 120 mm nozzles on branch pipes of an exhaust system and shod 20-inch disks with rubber Pirelli P Zero dimension 295/45. But the main difference, certainly, under a cowl. Now 6,4-liter eight Hemi capacity of 465 h.p. (631 Nm) from which the five-step automatic machine is aggregated there takes place. To first hundred Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is dispersed for 4,9 sec, and the maximum speed is limited on a mark of 250 km/h.

For example, 555-strong BMW X5 M makes the same exercise for 4,7 sec so it's possible to estimate work of engineers Street and Racing Technology on transformation of "the Big Indian" in a sport car as rather successful. Also the car has received the modifed steering booster, the recustomized suspender, more rigid springs, active absorbers and brakes Brembo. On assurances of Americans, thanks to new brakes the braking distance since speed of 100 km/h doesn't exceed 35 meters.

Has undergone to completion and interior. Now it's finished by a skin, alcantara and inserts from aluminum and carbon. Plus to everything, the car can brag of seven airbags, the xenon headlights, navigating system with vocal activation, a key with remote control, adaptive cruise-control, a rear-view camera, system Selec-Track with five modes of behavior, the multimedia center with DVD, socket USB and audiosystem Harman-Kardon with 19 dynamics.

Unfortunately, while Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 price is unknown. But it's possible not to doubt that "the Big Indian", at similar level of equipment and dynamic characteristics, will cost less than the German competitors.

    Towing? What towing? This is strictly a show car and I will never venture off road, much less drive it in inclement weather. Oh, I forgot. Can this suv drive through standing water without damaging the undercarriage? Why would I want to cause damage to such a pretty suv?

    However cynical Clarks comments maybe I do agree with his points. There is abundant of Chelsea tractors amongst the roads in Britain. At a guess I would say none of these SUVs see a hard days work in their life. As long they look pretty and tower over the rest of the traffic, everything else is second priority. I would be interested to know from tradesmen/women alike who actually use SUVs to their full potential, what they consider to be a safe bet for reliability and performance.
