Jeep forayed into the Indian market with Grand Cherokee, Grand Cherokee SRT and Wrangler. All of them will go on sale in India by sometime in mid-2016. They’ll be bought to India as Completely Built-Up (CBU) unit initially and will be assembled at Ranjangaon plant, Pune by 2017.
Grand Cherokee is offered in 3 variants. Limited, Summit and SRT. This is the Grand Cherokee SRT. The differences between SRT and the other two Cherokees are largely mechanical. The SRT features a 6.4L V8 Petrol engine producing 470 hp while the regular Cherokee has 240 hp 3.0L V6 diesel under the hood. The other major mechanical differences are 4WD systems, brakes, performance tuned steering, Sport Mode, Active Damping Suspension (regular gets steel suspension) and some more. The SRT gets Quadra-Trac Active On Demand 4WD system, while the Summit variant gets Quadra-Drive II 4WD System. The SRT gets Brembo High – Performance Anti-Lock Brakes as standard. Transmission is the same for all the Cherokees. The 8-speed automatic. Also, there is a difference in dimensions as well. The SRT is lengthier and wider than the regular ones.
The differences continue on the inside too. Laguna leather seats, SRT launch control system, Active noise cancellation system and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system. Watch the full video embedded above. And also don’t forget to hit like and subscribe!
