Love this SRT
May 9, 2019
The most fun car I have ever owned. The engine is its biggest attraction. 6.4 L naturally aspirated. You can hear it breathe and has lightning-quick response. (Sounds better than the 6.2 L with supercharger of the Trackhawk version in my opinion). It has 3 lives: very soft with hardly touching the throttle until 2200 rpm. A mid band up to 4000 rpm with plenty of torque - good for overtaking etc. Above 4000 rpm pedal to the floor: raw and loud beasty mode. Handling es excellent. Had a BMW X5 (4.8 L) in the past as well. The Jeep SRT is much more fun, as practical as the BMW, but more reliable and cheaper to maintain. Improvements to the Jeep grand Cherokee SRT? Could do with a front camera to help with low parking ridges. Mirrors should fold automatically, not on a pushbutton. Most of all however: Jeep should not put the Pirelli run flats on as standard fit: strong tires, but very noisy and not particularly grippy in the corners. I hear other owners say Yokohamas (Parada Spec X) and Hankook (Ventus ST-RH-06) , both non run-flats, are better. Overall a car that is very easy to live with in daily life, with some fun added by the fantastic engine and drivetrain.
