New 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 engine delivers 468 horsepower and 624 Nm of torque and features Fuel Saver Technology for improved fuel efficiency and lower overall emissions. Powerful 6.4-liter is mated to a proven five-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters joining standard Auto Stick.
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is powered by the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 engine fitted with Fuel Saver Technology. Fuel Saver alternates a four-cylinder mode of the HEMI engine when less power is needed and a V-8 mode when more power is in demand in order to optimize fuel economy and decrease overall emissions. New engine delivers 468 horsepower (344 kW) and 624 Nm of torque: an improvement of 43 horsepower and 55 Nm torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 that powered the former Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT generation. An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing produces maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and improved rpm band. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and improved straight-line performance. Thanks to the powerful V-8 HEMI engine, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT runs from 0-100 km/h in 5 seconds, has a top speed of 257 km/h and brakes from 100-0 km/h in 35 m.
These performances correspond to improved fuel efficiency: SRT model achieves a 13-percent increase on the highway thanks to the standard Fuel Saver Technology and new active valve exhaust system. Fuel Saver turns off four of the eight cylinders when full power is not required while the active valve exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to engage over a wider rpm range for improved fuel economy.
Powerful 6.4-liter V-8 HEMI engine is mated to the proven W5A580 five-speed automatic transmission allowing a choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. New standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto Stick on the floor. Both methods give the driver the ability to shift rapidly while the transmission controller calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine. Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more responsive while minimizing harshness. AutoStick allows the driver the possibility to choose between the fully automatic mode and the driver-interactive manual control simply by moving the gear shift to the right or the left.
New SRT-tuned, active Adaptive damping suspension allow for improved on-road handling. Advanced Jeep Selec-TrackTM traction control system features five dynamic modes in order to optimize vehicle performances to handle any condition and achieve the best driving experience.
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT was engineered to improve on-road handling even further. The best handling Jeep vehicle ever features new SRT-tuned, active Adaptive damping suspension managed by the new Jeep Selec-TrackTM system. This system interacts with several different systems (stability control, active damping, transmission shift strategy, transfer case torque proportioning, Electronic Limited Slip Differential performance, throttle control and cylinder de-activation) to automatically tune the dynamics of the vehicle according to customers' habits and driving condition. Drivers can manually choose between five dynamic modes for specific driving conditions:
Quadra Trac active on-demand four-wheel-drive system with rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential (ELSD) delivers Jeep off-road capability and adds the safety of the four-wheel drive when traveling on poor grip on-road surfaces.
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT features standard Quadra Trac active on-demand four-wheel-drive transfer case. This 4x4 system uses input from a variety of sensors in order to determine tire slip at the earliest possible moment and take corrective action. The system uses Throttle Anticipate to sense quick movement in the throttle from a stop and maximizes traction before slippage occurs. When tire slippage is detected, the system can transfer up to 100 percent of available torque to one rear wheel with better grip. The transfer case also enhances handling by proportioning torque between the front and rear axles to maintain the driver's intended path.
The new Grand Cherokee SRT also features Brake Traction Control System (BTCS) on the front differential and a rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential (ELSD). ELSD contributes to eliminate rear wheel slip and distributes torque to the wheel with grip, improving vehicle's handling.
SRT world-class braking performance is achieved through new SRT high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS).
All vehicles developed by the SRT team are well known for their world-class braking and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT was engineered to deliver benchmark braking performance. Stopping power for Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT comes courtesy of new SRT high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS). Stopping distance performance of 35 meters from 100-0 km/h is made possible by new Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers, and vented rotors measuring 38 cm (front) and 35 cm (rear). The performance-tuned, fully-hydraulic steering system is improved with a new, heavy-duty pump and pump cooler. Revised gearing gives drivers more direct feel and on-center response.
