If you’re looking for a high-performance SUV, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT promises to deliver an unmatched level of fun on the road. It’s the perfect option for sports car lovers who need the versatility of a family vehicle.
Behind the wheel, you’ll find premium features and smooth handling.
In terms of driving excitement, very few SUVs can rival the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. Under the hood sits a monstrous Hemi V-8 engine. Jeep tweaked it to kick out a stunning 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic gearbox sends the power to all four wheels. When launched from a standstill, the racy SUV hustles to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
Aside from its superior performance capabilities, the Grand Cherokee SRT still has an impressive towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.
To enhance the SUV’s handling, Jeep installed an adaptive sports-tuned suspension and performance tires. A limited-slip rear differential further improves the SUV’s grip against the pavement. Whether sprinting down the interstate or enjoying a fun drive in the countryside, you can expect the Grand Cherokee SRT to remain smooth and balanced.
Meanwhile, an advanced AWD system gives you the ability to drive safely throughout the year.
The SRT model is by far more the most aggressive-looking version of the Grand Cherokee. Although the Grand Cherokee is a muscular SUV, it hugs the road like a race-bred sports car. A powerful body kit gives it an extra-sleek profile.
You’ll also notice the SUV’s sporty front bumper and large exhaust tips. Red brake calipers peek from underneath the SRT model’s 20-inch alloy wheels. Several head-turning paint colors are available, including Velvet Red and Diamond Black.
On the inside, the 2017 Grand Cherokee SRT offers a spacious cabin. Not only does this high-powered SUV provide outstanding comfort, but it can also accommodate up to five passengers. This is good news for drivers accompanied by family. Heated and ventilated front seats come standard. When loading gear into the cargo area, you can take advantage of the SUV’s hands-free tailgate.
The Grand Cherokee SRT’s tech-filled interior is bound to leave you impressed. Featuring an 8.4-inch touch screen, the Uconnect infotainment system makes it easy for drivers to access their favorite smartphone apps.
Some of the other standard goodies include a 9-speaker sound system, navigation and a rearview camera. Available as an option, the dual-screen entertainment system promises to keep children happy.
Top-Notch Level of Passenger Safety
You can depend on the new Grand Cherokee SRT to provide a safe ride for your family. During an emergency on the road, a high-performance Brembo braking system helps keep you out of trouble. Several advanced driving aids now come standard, including autonomous braking technology and an automatic parking system.
Meanwhile, blind spot monitoring lets you know when it’s safe to change lanes.
