JEEP launches the JEEP CHEROKEE SRT
|   Monday, July 09, 2012
The new hunk from Jeep is finally here. The Jeep Cherokee SRT, labeled as the most powerful Jeep ever, the Cherokee with its muscular design, sporty interior, massive engine, elegant styling, is one of the most aggressively styled products to be manufactured by Jeep.

The massive Jeep is powered by a 6.4 L Hemi V8 power train delivering 461 BHP and 624 NM of torque. The SRT tag stands for Street Racing Technology and as the name suggests the Jeep is built for performance, be it track or street racing.


The massive vehicle is not very easy to corner and frankly feels out of control on a race track. However, it is perfect for cruising and off road experiences. The brakes of this car work great, with the introduction of the new ABS technology from Brembo.

The car also features an electronic driving mode option which allows the driver to change the transmission and suspension type for different driving experiences. The suspension of the vehicle has been upgraded to use the new Active Adaptive suspension and the SRT has unparalleled performance in it class.

The quality of the electronics and the parts is great and the front grille of the Jeep is a patent of its design pattern. The Cherokee has been designed to take on both on road and off road experiences and the designers at Chrysler's LLC had a lot of work to do for the car's success.

The SRT team worked on the engine and the design of the car, so that it could hold the power generated by the engine. The Cherokee has managed to become the toughest and most powerful vehicle to be created by Jeep.

The Cherokee costs 58,990 OTR in the United Kingdom and is priced competitively with the rivals. The rivals to this vehicle are the Q series vehicles from Audi, The Range Rover, Mercedes and BMW. These cars are all vying for the top spot in the high end 4 x 4 segments, with the Range Rover currently leading the pack.

The Cherokee is designed for racing and the suspension and transmission of this six speed vehicle has been tuned accordingly. The car is smooth at low revs and ignites as you rev the engine higher.

The corners are not very smooth as the car is very bulky and add to that the massive power. You literally have to slow down the vehicle by a considerable amount to attack the corners perfectly.

The Jeep Cherokee SRT however, sets the benchmark for performance in its class. With a top speed of 160 mph, the car does a 0 – 60 mph in 6 seconds. This is amazingly fast once you consider the sheer mass and volume of the car.

Jeep has always been skeptical about the safety standards in the market and hence, the vehicles from Jeep are equipped with innovative safety measures. The Cherokee nonetheless has a few innovative safety measures.

The electronic stability control, electronic roll over monitoring, ABS, a brake traction control, hill start assist, etc are some of the features of the safety Cherokee. This car is a complete package and Jeep hopes to penetrate deep into the market with this product.
