  • After a few days behind the wheel I got to wondering if the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 doesn't know it's not supposed to fly either. Disbelief.

    Maybe we could have found something seemingly less suited to a centimetre Ottawa snowfall than this cowcatcher-spoilered, steamroller-tired.

    I love this car and I cant find anything bad about it. The metallic paint still looks brand new. At this point nothing other than this make, model and year having 3 recalls so far and not sure how many more there will be coming along. We bought this car brand new from the dealer and had no problems.

    Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 () review | CAR Magazine

    The initials stand for the skunkworks that fettled it, Chrysler's Street and Racing Technology division, and the eight is a nod to its bhp Hemi V8 engine.

    They took the rather dumpy and flaccid Grand Cherokee and transformed it into something rather special. It's the fastest Jeep ever, and probably the meanest looking, too. But the undulating mile German test circuit will provide its sternest test yet.

    If ever a track exists to mercilessly lay bare a car's dynamic flaws, this is it…. You'd have thought so, considering the SRT-8's jumping off point: Thanks to the heavily revised suspension, though, it has plenty of grip, decent body control and the ride quality is pretty good too, doing a decent job of sponging away all but the worst intrusions. As explosive as you'd expect, with Chrysler's 6. It's a mighty engine that simply shrugs aside the Grand Cherokee's vast kg kerbweight to rocket to 60mph in 5.

    In-gear go is just ballistic. The gearing is shorter, and drop a cog at cruising speed and dump the throttle and the big Chezza bullets ahead with an almost arrogant disdain. Thankfully, those awesome Brembo brakes smoothly reel in the charging SRT In short, with the power to haul itself out of tight corners and hurtle along the straights, the Daddy Cherokee was more than able to sit on the tail of much faster and more honed machinery.

    Actually, there's nothing out there that matches the SRT-8's combination of price, dynamics and V8 performance — it could give a Cayenne Turbo S a run for its money. Chunky body kit, deep tarmac-scraping chin, flared wheelarches, inch wheels, gutter sized twin exhausts poking out from the centre of big rear bumper, piercing foglamps — it all shouts 'Get the hell outta my way, boy.

    I got me a Hemi and a country to invade. Just don't expect to go off-roading in it. Buyers expecting a plush and beautifully built cabin awash in the softest of leathers and plastics should look elsewhere. Although it comes fully loaded with niceties like sat-nav, heated leather seats and a whopping sound system, the SRT-8's cabin looks very American.

    Build quality is average, it's a little brash and some of the plastics are hard and shiny. Oh come on, some perspective please. It's a lot of metal for the money. So a bit of hard plastic here and there is not the end of the world, is it?

    And with only 50 coming to the UK, it may be cheap but it will be exclusive. Joel Robuchon at Burger King prices. It's bold, powerful, handsome, massively quick - and utterly ridiculous. Does the world really need a kg, bhp, mph off-roader that returns 17mpg?

    But at this price, why the hell not? More info on Jeep Grand Cherokee. Five-speed automatic, all-wheel drive Performance: Jeep Grand Cherokee Cars for Sale. Jeep Grand Cherokee Leasing Deals.
