2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is Not Your Typical Off-Roader

August 29th, 2013 by

If you’re searching for a “typical” new Jeep model, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is not where you’re going to find it. The supped-up and performance-heavy version of the standard Grand Cherokee (which has been modified by Chrysler’s Street and Racing Technology division) is a different kind of animal. Focused more on raw power and performance on the road (and even the track!) it’s one unique Jeep model.

The run of the mill Grand Cherokee received quite a few changes this year, as did the SRT model. Notable features include a new eight-speed automatic transmission that features paddle shifters, as well as new exterior features like its distinct squinting headlamps.

But the Grand Cherokee SRT’s power is what really impresses us. With a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine that cranks out an incredible 470-hp and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, it achieves 0-60 mph in less than five seconds and has the ability to tow 7,200 lbs.

Instead of featuring the standard 4X4 system the standard Grand Cherokee holds, the SRT version features all-wheel drive and adaptive dampers. There are even “Sport” and “Track” settings, which send power to the rear wheels and lead to a sports-car-like ride.

Craving more style and power from your Jeep model? The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT could be the perfect fit for your lifestyle, but even the standard 2014 Grand Cherokee has plenty to offer.
