Jeep has introduced the 2015MY Grand Cherokee SRT which has received a series of subtle tweaks, including an Active Noise Cancelling system that has four microphones to help block intrusive noises from penetrating the interior cabin. The new model year is introducing a Red Vapor Special Edition model equipped with 20-inch Black Chrome alloy wheels, glossy black accents and a dark red engine cover. Inside there’s a Radar Red trim, light black chrome accents and also backlit steering wheel controls.
The engineers have also made some modifications under the hood where the mighty V8 6.4-liter HEMI engine has been massaged to deliver an additional 5 bhp (3 kW) and 5 lb-ft (6 Nm). As a result, the motor now churns 475 bhp (354 kW) and a maximum torque of 470 lb-ft (637 Nm). It comes coupled to an 8-speed automatic gearbox allowing the high-performance SUV hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in 4.8 seconds en route to a 160 mph (257 km/h) top speed.
