The new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is almost ready to hit the market and offer its users a comfortable interior and excellent performance. Well, it is widely known that the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers great performance, but it seems that the company is preparing something even greater for the 2016 model year. This vehicle is everything you need. It is an excellent luxury vehicle but it is also a capable off-roader and it is fuel-efficient at the same time. Now when we commended this excellent family vehicle, it is time to check more details about it and verify the allegations above.
Exterior of 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT
The first thing you need to know about the exterior design of the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is that it will wear some of the design cues of the Charger Hellcat. We are quite sure that you don’t mind to see some of the Hellcat’s design cues on the brand-new Grand Cherokee. The front fascia of the vehicle will be significantly improved. The greatest novelty arrives in the form of new headlights which now come with LED light pipes that give the front end a rather bold look. There will also be larger vents because a powerful engine needs air flow. Just like other vehicles in the Hellcat lineup, the model will hit the market with numerous, but subtle changes. For example, you will see larger tires, larger brakes, smoked headlight glass, and a lighter body kit. The wheel flares will also be larger and painted in matte black.
2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Interior
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT represents a five-passenger model with two rows of seats. The overall interior layout looks really great. A great choice of trim options and multiple color schemes turn the vehicle into a luxury-vehicle even though it arrives with only two rows of seats. Things inside of the cabin look pretty much the same as in other interiors of Cherokee lineup. The cabin will be equipped with a flat-bottomed steering wheel with a slightly thicker rim. The seats will be covered in top-notch leather. Some of the features you will find inside of the cabin include: heating and cooling seats, refreshed stereo system, Un-connect system with navigation, Harmon Kardon unit with 18 speakers, etc.
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 2016 Engine
We finally arrived to the most defining aspect of every vehicle, its engine. The new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT will be offered with several engine options. The SRT8 model will be powered by a 6.2L V8 engine which has the capacity to generate 490 ponies and 460 pound-feet of torque. If you wonder is it actually possible to get this output, yes it is. Thanks to the fine tuned intake system and a brand-new exhaust system, 490 hp can be achieved. With this engine under its hood, the SRT8 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. The SRT8 Hellcat will be powered by the same but supercharged engine which will make 707 hp and 650 pound-feet of torque. It can accelerate from naught to 60 in only 3 seconds.
