The thunderous Hemi V8 still remains in our hearts as it has left a lasting impression with its iconic details and impressive performance. So how would you describe a mammoth good looking vehicle like the SRT? Butch, Masculine, Sporty? , something else or rather all of the above!

The Grand Cherokee SRT’s Hemi V8 needs no introduction as we are well aware of the hearty exhaust note and the throttle response you get when you put your foot down for that powerful pull around. There literally isn’t a better engine note or for that matter an engine than the mighty V8.

The Grand Cherokee SRT starts at $68,645 with available safety packages, in case you feel as if though the Hemi powered V8 might go bonkers and is too powerful for your taste. Some might say that Jeep has kept the recipe for the Cherokee SRT as the same though it is in its fourth iteration or generation, the Grand Cherokee SRT is unique enough to stay relevant in this day and age with minor tweaks.

 Engine and Transmission!

The SRT has a 6.4 liter V8 that puts out a massive 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. It uses an 8-speed automatic transmission. The SRT trim of the Grand Cherokee offers adventure enhancements which include sports-tuned suspension, performance brakes, and other sporty enhancements. It over-delivers in terms of performance numbers.

The performance-oriented Grand Cherokee SRT with its 6.4L engine appeals to its audience with its devilish attitude. The Merc GLC63 AMG has the smallest engine but packs a punch with its respectable torque. It is not that far behind in terms of power too.

The Jaguar F-Pace SVR with its much smaller engine than the Cherokee SRT beats it unabashedly in pure power.

 Acceleration!

The SRT ripped from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds. Around busy streets, it might seem a bit dull, but for performance seeking enthusiasts, the responsive throttle will keep their life exciting when it comes to rigorous and powerful passing. On the track, Grand Cherokee SRT takes our breath away with a top speed of 160 mph.

The GLC63 AMGs throttle response is so extreme, that it throws you back into the seat with utmost force and that is evident in its quarter mile and 0-60 times, which is practically in supercar territory! Despite, having the largest engine, it lacks character in terms of 0-60 times.

Braking!

The Grand Cherokee SRT comes with the standard 20-inch five-spoke Goliath wheels with a 6 piston Brembo brake discs. The Aggressive and devilish bodywork of the Cherokee SRT demands beefed-up robust brakes , which is a relief and thus it wants you to push the Grand Cherokee SRT harder. Just in case , if you need something extra , you can add the high-performance brake package to make sure the SRT stops much better.

As the Jaguar is light and nimble , it should have a smaller braking distance. In comparison, the Grand Cherokee SRT has a modest 168 feet stopping distance.

Ride and Handling!

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT offers true sports car experience at the price of an SUV. It can easily take you through rough terrain almost flawlessly and can help you cruise comfortably in a solid, reassuring drive through smooth paved roads. The suspension being firm is not at all harsh and can cruise through bumps quickly and easily. On top of this, should you require it, it can tow up to 7200 pounds.

Depending on the choice of Powertrain, it can be an excellent family wagon, an off-road master or an extreme performance SUV.

It was good enough for 2019 and is definitely good for 2020 with minor tweaks.

In terms of performance, probably one of the best SUVs that are around in the industry!

SRT- my god what an experience it has been. I have never been more impressed with a vehicle. It is a beast. It stands true to its name street and racing. The power it has and that exhaust sound It’s like nothing else matters when you drive an SRT.

I don't think I'll be able to throw enough good words for this monster in Sting gray coat. Lets still fire up the engine. Right, when it cranks up, it starts to roar like a monster and you can feel it has got tremendous power under the hood even if you're not in driving gear. The exhaust sounds rumble showing its brute nature. Setting up to driving(with off course seat belts on), the V8 comes into play and starts to show off by monstrous torque(takes a little more foot weight on the pedal to gun the engine though) and just before you know it, you have zoomed past that exit on the highway with ear to ear grin on your face & like 100+ mph on the speedo. While all this was happening, you didn't notice that bad patch you left behind and thanks to its suspension and the ride quality. And if all this was not enough, Multi displacement system kicks in to save that extra ounce of gas by shutting off a couple cylinders when not needed. Snapback to reality now.
