Earlier today we revealed you the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but now it’s time to talk about the most powerful addition in its lineup: this is the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT. Although the outgoing model looks real good, we can’t say the same thing about the 2014MY Grand Cherokee… this one looks impressive and is even more aggressive than the previous model.
Some of the design enhancements for 2014 include a new signature LED character lamp treatment, a brawnier grille, one-touch liftgate and a new rear spoiler. Under the aggressively-designed hood, the 2014 Grand Cherokee uses a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine delivering 470 hp and 465 lb.-ft. (630 Nm) of torque. For 2014, the Grand Cherokee SRT owners will receive three additional gears from their transmission: an all-new eight-speed automatic.
The Grand Cherokee SRT rides on a short- and long-arm (SLA) independent front suspension with coil springs, Bilstein adaptive damping suspension (ADS), upper- and lower-control arms (“A” arms), and a stabilizer bar. The 2014 Grand Cherokee is delivers excellent braking performance and needs only 116 feet to come to a full stop from 60 miles per hour (mph).
The 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT will be available in the following exterior colors: Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Bright White Clear Coat, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Deep Cherry Red Pearl Coat, Granite Crystal Pearl Coat, Maximum Steel Metallic Clear Coat and Redline Pearl Clear Coat.
The interior was also updated and the most significant enhancement is the new Uconnect 8.4AN radio touchscreen. The 8.4-inch display shows a wealth of SRT-exclusive Performance Pages, including recent track times, lateral acceleration, 0-60 mph times and much more. On the center console we find the leather-wrapped T-handle shifter for the eight-speed transmission that allows the drivers to select two driving modes including Drive and Sport.
A new steering wheel is also available and provides optimal view of the new gauge cluster that now features a 7-inch, full-color, customizable instrument display. The 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT also features a 825-watt, 19-speaker premium SRT performance audio surround-sound system from Harman Kardon.
