2007 Jeep Grand SRT8

Engine: 6.1 liter V8 5-Speed Automatic Horsepower @ 432@6200 Torque @ RPM: Displacement: 6110 L 0-60 5 sec. Top Speed: 180 mph

Jeep® are rightly known worldwide for capability, utility and distinctive Now the all-new Jeep Grand SRT8 combines those with Street and Racing (SRT ) balanced approach to resulting in the quickest, most Jeep vehicle ever and the ultimate performance sport-utility

Jeep vehicles lead the way in performance and versatility, said Bell, Vice President Chrysler Group. The all-new Grand Cherokee SRT8 Jeep capability with SRT to create a vehicle that leave in its dust competitors cost twice as much.

by a 6.1-litre HEMI® V-8 producing 432 hp and 420 of torque, the all-new Jeep Cherokee SRT8 #8217;s numbers include a 0-60 mph time of approximately 5 sec. and km braking distance of approximately m (125 feet).

When we set out to the quickest, most powerful vehicle ever, the Jeep Cherokee presented us with an capable starting point, Dan Knott, Director Street and Technology, Chrysler Group. an infusion of SRT DNA, the Jeep Cherokee SRT8 is the new benchmark SUV. It has the raw power to outperform the Cayenne Turbo, while exceptional ride and handling, braking, race-inspired interior and functional, performance-oriented exterior

Four-wheel-drive System

To create the SRT vehicle with full-time drive, SRT engineers developed a system that was lightweight, yet and reliable enough to handle the amounts of horsepower and torque the Jeep Grand Cherokee powertrain. One part of the equation was to a new transfer case, housing from two existing units the upgrades needed to make it

SRT engineers opted to use the front of a Jeep transfer case for its capability and light weight to the rear half of a heavier-duty chosen for its ruggedness and ability to the electronic full-time four-wheel-drive components. The transfer case shaft was upgraded to handle the torque generated by the SRT 6.1-litre The result is an all-new unique case, which provides the power-handling capabilities for the Jeep Cherokee SRT8.

Under driving conditions, five to 10 of torque is directed to the front but as much of the 6.1-litre HEMI®#8217;s as needed can be directed forward additional traction or stability is Remaining torque is sent via a driveshaft (originally designed for the Jeep Grand Cherokee model), to a Dana 44 rear upgraded with a larger gear (crown wheel) a new axle housing.

We wanted characteristics that only drive can provide, said Our goal for the Jeep Grand SRT 8 was to have a well-balanced vehicle a high fun-to-drive factor. The electronic four-wheel-drive system is suited to this.


horsepower and torque to the unique SRT system is a specially tuned of the new 6.1-litre SRT HEMI® engine. by the original family of HEMI® . the SRT 6.1-litre HEMI® employs the hemispherical combustion chambers provide power and efficiency, retaining classic HEMI® cues, including the orange-painted block and black valve

SRT engineers who developed the Jeep Cherokee SRT8#8217;s engine more horsepower by adding cylinder capacity, increasing the ratio, and redesigning the cylinder intake and exhaust systems for gas flow and increased engine

For more displacement, SRT engineers out the diameter of the cylinders in the HEMI® by 3.5 each in order to increase the displacement to 6.1 litres from 5.7 The compression ratio was also to 10.3:1 from 9.6:1, engine efficiency and power.

breathing was increased with new cylinder heads, a specially intake manifold and fresh air system, and exhaust headers individual tubes encased in a steel shell. All these are unique to the 6.1-litre HEMI® Larger-diameter valves and reshaped in the heads allow for maximized air The intake manifold was designed larger-diameter and shorter runners for tuning.

Exhaust is routed a large-diameter 70 mm (2.75 in.) bigger exhaust system 101 mm (4 in.) chrome tail

To further increase horsepower, camshaft profiles were to allow more air in and out of the cylinders, and to with higher engine SRT engineers increased the HEMI®#8217;s power output engine nearly 20 percent to 6000 rpm 5000 rpm. Intake and valve stems are hollow, and the valve stems are filled sodium to help dissipate more efficiently.

The high-performance SRT HEMI® is strengthened with components, including a reinforced block, forged steel high-strength powdered-metal connecting floating-pin pistons (cooled by oil and a sump-modified to manage oil return at engine.

Power from the SRT HEMI® is sent through a torque converter to an SRT-upgraded automatic transmission. Torque is sent to front and rear through a specially designed case.

Ride and Handling

The all-new Grand Cherokee SRT8 is with the signature SRT characteristic of ride and handling across a range.

Chassis setup is at balanced performance with dampers, unique anti-roll and specially tailored spring and suspension bushings. New front knuckles feature a camber calibrated for optimum suspension The ride height of the Jeep Cherokee SRT8 is 25 mm (1.0 lower than the Jeep Cherokee, which reduces drag, as well as the centre of and contributes to the vehicle#8217;s stability and stance.

To meet or exceed and safety criteria, the Electronic Control (ESC) was specially for the Jeep Grand Cherokee

Further contributing to its aggressive the all-new Jeep Grand SRT8 is fitted with forged 20-inch diameter aluminum wheels shod high-performance Goodyear P245/45ZR20 BSW tyres on the front and rear run-flat capability.

The all-new Grand Cherokee SRT8 is capable of towing up to 3500


The braking system of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed to provide outstanding as a counterpoint to the vehicle#8217;s awesome and performance.

Inside all four there are four-piston performance calipers developed by Brembo in gloss black), which down on 360 mm x 32 mm ventilated discs up and 350 mm x 28 mm ventilated discs at the rear.

SRT#8217;s credo demands exterior enhancements that to performance and resonate with the character. The all-new Jeep Cherokee SRT8#8217;s lowered, stance shows its unmistakable identity endowed with SRT DNA .

An all-new front fascia aerodynamic improvements to reduce and drag, while providing air flow to cool the 6.1-litre engine. The front fascia helps to increase brake-system through integrated air ducts.

In the an all-new fascia incorporates an centre cutout to accommodate the four-inch exhaust tail

Another functional enhancement is extensions, which help downforce.
