Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

Jeep increased the weight of their Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and mostly because of the new 8-speed automatic transmission and the bigger rear axle. The extra weight does not affect the acceleration time. Apparently the 2014 Jeep Cherokee is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and to go along with quarter mile times in the low 13-second range and a top speed of 160 moles per hour. The engine is capable of generating 470 horsepower and 465 lb. ft. of torque and features the full-time four-wheel drive system called Selec-Track. These provide more traction than the most stubborn mule in the jungle. The model is very aggressive thanks to the 20-inch alloy wheels covered in Pirelli P-Zero 295/45/ZR20 tires. The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine makes a very interesting sound, easy to recognize. The rear glass is no longer separate from the rest of the tailgate. The modifications make the piece lighter while improving rear visibility.

The interior of the 2014 model has also been improved and now carbon fiber replaces the wood accents found in less powerful Grand Cherokee models. Together with the new transmission comes a new shifter that is shaped like a traditional T. the lever is now fully electronic and has separate detents when moving from Park to Reverse, Neutral or Drive. Actually the biggest change of the interior refers to the new 8.4-liter Uconnect central infotainment system. This can now be activated using voice commands changing climate settings, answering or making phone calls or calling upon the cloud using Bing search for directions. The estimated fuel consumption was registered at 13 miles per gallon in the city and 19 miles per gallon on the highway. In the Eco mode, these figures improve, according to Jeep. The starting price was established at $62.995. Source: autoblog
