What is the Fastest Jeep Cherokee?
Engine Performance of The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT
It is highly impressive that the Jeep Grand Cherokee is in the high-performance automobile group of Street & Racing Technology within the Stellantis North America. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is remarkable because of it has:
- Powerful Hemi V-8
- Aggressive exterior styling
- Is more practical than a sports sedan or muscle car
For those of you thrill-seeking weekend warrior buyers whose idea of an adventurous afternoon includes speed of travel rather than an off-road trail, the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a high-performance SUV that can boogie. The engine’s 6.4-liter V-8 pumps out 475 horsepower while a vigorous exhaust announces the SRT’s arrival and, probably more dramatically, its departure. While it is based on the standard Grand Cherokee, the SRT wears more aggressive bodywork and comes standard with a sport-tuned suspension and upgraded brakes. In other words, it loses none of the Grand Cherokee’s practicality or lush cabin comfort, although the SRT’s is far less smooth over potholes. If you are looking for all of the above in pure bliss, Jeep offers the 707-hp Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, but with a bigger price tag.
What’s New for 2021?
While Jeep has made no changes to the Grand Cherokee SRT for 2021, an all-new Grand Cherokee 2022 is expected, and that can only mean big changes should be coming for this high-performance variant. An 80th Anniversary Edition bundles some popular equipment offerings with a unique interior and exterior look.
The base SRT is for all unpractically perfect purposes, as-is. We’d suggest adding the high-performance brake package to make sure the SRT stops as well as accelerates and the Trailer Tow Group for optimal towing capacity.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee
A mainstay of the Jeep family, considerably more capable and refined than the crossover SUV models that form the rest of the lineup besides the Wrangler and Gladiator. The Grand Cherokee covers a wide range of options, from the attractively priced V6 Laredo, to the off-road Trailhawk, and from the luxurious Overland and Summit to the sinfully quick Trackhawk. No matter the iteration, the Grand Cherokee is a strictly two-row midsize SUV that comfortably accommodates four (or five) adults and a gaggle of luggage. Interior trim can range from fairly modest to quite luxurious, and while the 7-inch touchscreen is less visually impressive than many rivals, it is very easy to use. The Jeep’s similarly sized crossover competition generally offers smoother on-road handling, but any 4WD Grand Cherokee will be able to travel further off the beaten path. The Jeep also can tow up to 7,200 pounds. Contact Jim Browne Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Tampa Bay for your out of Florida expeditions.
