Jeep delivers dynamite in large package
The interior of the Grand Cherokee SRT is comfortable and spacious. A superior finish, artfully crafted in high-quality material, reflects its racing soul. Not only did the designers do a good job on the car’s looks, they also focused on making the car safe.
The Grand Cherokee SRT8 is pure power and pure technology with an adaptive cruise control, advanced multi-stage air bags, blind spot monitoring with rear cross path detection, and electronic stability control. Other safety features include forward collision warning, hill start assist, key-less enter-n-go, a park view rear back-up camera and smart beam headlights.
Not only is the car big, fast and aggressive it is thirsty too. This SUV packs a 6.4 litre hemi V8 engine which I think is the only downside to this power machine. Offering power of up to 344 KW and torque of 624 NM, these numbers lead to an impressive 0 to 100km/h time of around 5 seconds and on to a top speed of 255km/h.
With the Grand Cherokee the proud owner will not go unnoticed. This car comes with the full must-have package: LED light clusters, 100mm exhaust pipes, air intakes on the front end and functional heat extractors on the bonnet to optimise cooling. Adding to its handling and road performance are the Brembo Callipers and discs which allow you to decelerate from 100 to zero in just 35 metres.
Sales Manager at M&Z Motors Stephen Enslin said the car has been well received by the public: “they are ecstatic about the car, it is rated as one of the world’s top SUVs in its class. It is most definitely value for money”.
When you jump on board the Grand Cherokee SRT8 you will discover why SRT is not just a set of initials in an acronym or a label. SRT is the DNA that defines this car: Sporty, adventurous and outside the box. The all new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the Clark Kent of SUVs, it growls and so does its price of N$850,000 but don’t let that scare you from getting a rush of excitement every time you get on the road.
