The last Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 was one heck of a muscle truck, but it was somewhat encumbered by being based on the last Grand Cherokee. The new model, however, is a different beast entirely, billed as the kind of vehicle that could help turn Chrysler's fortunes around. So what's next? The new Grand Cherokee SRT8, of course. And rumormill reports of its specifications are beginning to pour in.
The driving force of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is 6.4-liter V-type eight-cylinder engine Hemi. Although significantly better its dynamic characteristics, it is more economical than its predecessor by 13%. This is due to the new system of fuel economy, which in low load off of the cylinders.
Because of the increased output of Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 have changed and brake mechanisms. Six pistons are new front and rear four-and are the work of the notorious company Brembo. The options in the cabin are interesting multimedia system Harmann-Kardon, which has an output of 825 watts and Satellite Radio SIRIUS.
Power is from an all-new, all-aluminum 3.6-liter dohc 60-degree V-6 with variable valve timing, 290 bhp at 6400 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque peaking at 4800 rpm. A smooth revver in the modern vein, the V-6 gives good if not overwhelming power at the Cherokee’s approximate 4600-lb. curb weight. The V-6 is rated to tow 5000 lb.
Sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 starts in the autumn, as the U.S. price will be $ 45,000.
