2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 news, pictures, and information
2010 Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8®: Quickest Jeep Vehicle EverAs the first four-wheel-drive SRT vehicle, Jeep Grand Chrokee SRT8® is the quickest, most powerful Jeep vehicle ever, offering astonishing on-road and all-weather capability and power. The specially developed four-wheel-drive system propels Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 from 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds—quicker than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and BMW X5—0-100-0 in low 19-second range and 60-0 mph in approximately 125 feet.
Powered by a 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 that produces 420 horsepower (313 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 N•m), the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 delivers the complete performance package wîth exceptional ride and handling, world-class braking, race-inspired interior appointments and functional, performance-oriented exterior enhancements.
For example, the front fascia provides aerodynamic benefits by reducing lift and drag, while providing sufficient air flow to cool the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 engine. The front fascia also helps increase brake-system cooling through integrated air ducts.
The rear fascia incorporates an aggressive center cut-out in order to accommodate dual 4-inch exhaust tips. Sill extensions result in another functional enhancement by creating downforce.
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8's cabin features an SRT signature race-inspired interior. Seats wîth added bolstering and a performance fabric insert keep occupants firmly in place under spirited driving conditions. A dark slate gray interior color, accent stitching on the seats and a unique SRT-designed leather-wrapped §teering wheel are some of the highlights. Full instrumentation includes a 180-mph (300-kph) speedometer, tachometer and temperature gauges, all trimmed wîth a unique blue accent.
Providing horsepower and torque to the unique SRT four-wheel-drive system is a specially tuned version of the HEMI engine, which was developed by adding more displacement, increasing the compression ratio and redesigning cylinder heads, intake and exhaust systems for better flow and increased engine speed.
Power from the 6.1-liter HEMI is sent through a special torque converter to an SRT-upgraded, five-speed automatic transmission wîth specially calibrated driver-selectable Auto Stick, which offers a fully automatic or manual shift selection.
