Jeep Celebrates 75th Anniversary by Driving Grand Cherokee SRT Up a Volcano
The fastest, most powerful Jeep vehicle ever, fitting a 6.4-litre V-8 468 HP engine and capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in just 4.9 seconds, was put to the test on the famous volcano, a perfect location for showing off the sporting and extreme personality of the car.
What better terrain to put the powerful engine, the Brembo braking system and the Active Damping suspension to the test? The Jeep brand picked this evocative setting as a backdrop for celebrating the ultimate high-performance SUV, the Grand Cherokee SRT.
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is available in the EMEA region with comprehensive equipment that includes Nappa leather interiors, suede sports seats, 20-inch alloy rims, Uconnect 8.4-inch system with DAB and navigator, optional rear seat screens with DVD/Blu-Ray player and Commandview panoramic electric sunroof.
Alongside the already outstanding standard SRT is the SRT Night special version (picture below) that was presented in preview in Los Angeles and made its first appearance in Europe at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Compared with the SRT, it adds an even sportier personality with Matte Black rims and body inserts. The Night characterisation continues inside with the back-lit SRT badge on the steering wheel and the high quality Laguna Black leather seats.
