Link to official release from Jeep here.

So, basically it is the Hellcat drivetrain in the Grand Cherokee. The same difference between the Charger/Challenger SRT's and their Hellcat siblings.

- 707HP/645lb-ft
- 0-60 in 3.5 seconds

Front fascia and rear valance are slightly changed from the SRT version and the quad exhaust sets it apart from the regular SRT out back.




Can't wait to test drive it! My dealer will have one as soon as they are available.

I'd like to see the dealer markup on something like this. This is going to be one expensive toy.

What if a person was to buy that and then drive around town at 35mph and then go on the freeway and set the cruise control at 55mph ? grin2

An endeavor in confliction. Designed from the ground up to be superior in it's class for off-roading and utility with decent road manners so sure why not work to produce a package that adapts the vehicle to a polar opposite mission-- on a race track. Engineering time and effort would be better spent refining some of their other vehicles that are struggling to compete in their class, instead of developing a mongrel package for one of their class leaders.

That's what a company circling the drain does. Mopar has 0 innovation and their sales in all but Ram is tanking so they have to do something. A whole lot cheaper to put out these crazy cars to a limited audience than actually engineer something and fix quality and what not. But that would take a culture change, something Chrysler has never done in their, what 80 years of existence. It builds buzz but will be sold in very limited quantities and really doesn't do much to change a company's image or get people to buy vehicles.

Sure it's cool they can get a turd to go 0-60 in 3.9 secs but at the end of the day its just another POS Mopar.

Haw. Always love to hear the extreme bias from our resident MOPAR basher! BTW, RAM is tied with the majors in the latest JDP survey! Hahahaha, such bias is ridiculous. Always makes me wonder why so much emotion? Around here we buy what we like, and SRT vehicles are almost always entertaining. Did Chrysler steal this guy's wife or something?

Now for the real story. This new SRT vehicle is designed to build buzz, and it will. These also sell at full retail, something very few cars from ANY mfgr do.

The only reason these cars/trucks exist is to build brand awareness and to make money. This one will easily do both. No real enthusiast cares about the rest of Chrysler's line up.

Yep, gorgeous and quick on its feet. Like most SRT vehicles it will have fantastic braking and cornering stats as well. LOVE the new exhaust!

get us some first impressions when you see it in the flesh/steel/whatever!

I love all the haters condemning Chysler Dodge for building cars and selling them. You hear the overpriced gimmick cars, fad cars etc..
The same people go out and buy $60,000+ dollar BMW and Range Rovers and then condemn Dodge.
I think the Dodge Challengers and Chargers are a much better deal than a Lincoln or Cadillac for alot less and certainly a better price than a car like Mercedes Benz that you can't even service yourself and is worthless once it's out of warranty because the repairs don't make ownership viable.
I see no lack of Dodges on the roadway.

Anything FCA makes or does seems to be very highly criticized on here. I understand the criticism of the bad stuff, but this? duh

Yeah one of the many Mopar brands, the name that has been building the same thing for the past, what 8 years. The rest, including Jeep are at the bottom.

I highly doubt someone who is in the market for a luxury sedan would consider Dodge...regardless that you feel it is a better deal.
