Already an award winning head-turner, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8 is further staking its claim as The Ultimate Performance SUV. New for 2013 are bright white Alpine and brilliant black Vapor special edition models that take the legendary Jeep performance, capability, and luxury to a new level. Both new models feature the addition of Black Vapor Chrome finish to the standard split 5-spoke, 20 inch wheels along with unique gloss black exterior appointments including:
• Jeep hood badge
• Grand Cherokee door badge
• Front grille surround and inserts
• Rear light bar and step pad
• Rear SRT8 badge
Powering the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 470 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. The SRT8 delivers fuel efficiency and an extended range of 450 miles on one tank of gas, with blazing standing starts and improved straight-line performance.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the best-handling Jeep vehicle ever, with its SRT-tuned, adaptive damping suspension managed by the Jeep Selec-Track system, which interacts with different systems to tune the dynamics of the vehicle. Choose among five dynamic modes for specific driving conditions.
It’s not a Jeep vehicle if it’s not capable. The standard Jeep Quadra-Trac SRT active on-demand four-wheel-drive transfer case does a few things. It uses sensor input to take corrective action at the earliest detection of tire slip, allowing the Jeep 4×4 system to transfer up to 100% of available torque to one rear wheel. The transfer case also enhances handling by proportioning torque between the front and rear axles.
Other features include five-spoke, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and a trailer tow rating of 5,000 lbs.
Building off of the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s refined, luxurious interior, the SRT8 interior features race-inspired technology and SRT-exclusive appointments. Drivers assume the role of racer with a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a satin chrome rim section and paddle-shift controls on both sides. Nappa leather and suede seats, sculpted bolsters, and contrast stitching enhance the race-inspired luxury.
Drivers receive instant feedback thanks to the SRT-exclusive Performance Pages, showing horsepower, torque, 0-60 time, G-forces, expanded engine information, and more.
The 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the most powerful Jeep vehicle ever, the best-performing Jeep vehicle ever, and the best-handling Jeep vehicle ever. It comes with standard luxury, race-inspired appointments, and exclusive SRT features. And with the new Alpine and Vapor special edition models, the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 truly is The Ultimate Performance SUV.
