The car comes with either a 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive system where it is divided into 3 different trims, namely the Laredo, Limited and Overland which is the top of the range high performance version. At its entry level, the Laredo comes with a 3.7 liter V6 engine that gets you up to 210 horses. This configuration pretty much gets you up with performance where it is concerned. If that is not enough, then the Limited Edition trim might suit your needs where it boost out some 305 horses in its 4.7 liter V8 flex-fuel engine. If that still do not quench your thirst for power, then get the 5.7 liter top of the range V8 Hemi engine. The SRT8 though comes with the 6.1 liter V8 engine that gets you up to 420 horsepowers. Crazy huh?
All versions are mated with a 5 speed automatic transmission gearbox as standard while a four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assists are also included. Other features include an electronic stability program, traction control system, side curtain air bags, tyre-pressure monitoring system as well as an advanced multi-stage air bags in front. The Grand Cherokee also comes with a hard drive mated with its MyGig audio system as well. Variable Valve Control systems are fitted with its 5.7 liter V8 engine into the Overland and the Limited versions.
In terms of speed, of course the top of the range engine deserves our mention which gets you from zero to hundred in 4.8 seconds and top speeding in 155mph. This is being paired with its 4-piston Brembo brake calipers within its 20 inch wheels. You might be asking what does SRT stands for. The SRT which means Street and Race Technology is Jeep’s own trademark that gives the Cherokee the profile it needs not only to be a serious off-road car but also the performance based model it so well exudes. No wonder it has been labeled as one of the best 4 door SUVs to have come from them throughout the years.
