The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT makes a clear statement from the first time you see it. With its massive size and aggressive looks, it leaves little room to compromise. But it makes a lot of room for a fantastic engine and state-of-the-art technologies instead.
At the front, it boasts LED lights and a shorter grille than last year’s model. All the design features went towards making it look even more aggressive, while the engine has been significantly improved.
The 470hp beast that hides underneath now boasts a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which will no doubt make this car a pleasure to drive. Speed transmission has also been re-distributed between front and back, with 70 percent of the total speed now being directed towards the back. A big chunk of the excitement about this engine also depends on the increase in the towing performance, now at 7,200 pounds, up by 44 percent on the previous model.
To push the driving experience towards even more comfortable territories, Grand Cherokee has also included an independent front suspension and Bilstein adaptive damping suspensions, as well as upper and lower-control arms and a stabilizer bar.
Driving modes can be chosen between Auto, Sport, Tow, Track and Snow, allowing drivers to adapt the car’s reaction to different road situations, while braking is outstanding and relies on Brembo calipers and vented rotors.
All around the driver, the Uconnect Access Via Mobile entertainment system allows you to play your favourite music from your portable devices, while the audio surround system from Kardon boasts 825 watts and 19 speakers: the quality and power of sound match up exactly the car’s own essence.
Available in 7 colours and leather interiors in sepia and black, the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT will be launched in the second quarter of 2013.
