In an interview granted to Vvuz.com Mike Manley, CEO of Jeep, has confirmed that before the end of 2017 will hit the market a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat. We are at the beast more beast in the world of off-road, then take the same engine that the famous Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat.
The Grand Cherokee has been the model chosen by Jeep to mount the HEMI 6.2-liter Hellcat
We are talking about a V8 oversized 6.2 liter source HEMI with nothing more and nothing less 707 horses of power. This block has allowed both the Charger as the Challenger are two of the sedans commercial most powerful in the world. Something that within a year you will be accompanied by the off-road/SUV more powerful and fast in the world.
recently I discussed that Jeep is planning to develop more models in the short term. Two new units added to the fleet of the american brand. At that time already began to hint about the possible arrival of this new member of the family Hellcat, although by then his name was considered as Trackhawk. On the other hand we have already seen how a Jeep compact has begun its testing phase.
, much work Remains to be done, but the commit should happen a lot of preparations. you have to change almost the entire platform of the Grand Cherokee, although you can already count with a maximum of 468 HP in your version SRT, the increased power would not be supported by the current frame.
To this I would add a set of suspensions completely new, capable of facing the dynamic level that requires such a performance, in addition to a braking system of high performance. This is why the lord Manley has ensured that the Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat will not come until the end of next year.
In less than two years the acronym SRT shall be accompanied by the designation Hellcat
Is now when they get the bad news. By very happy that we put the arrival of this behemoth, there are that say that this never step on european ground. It will be a commercial version american, just like the Dodge. Therefore the SUV faster on the old continent will continue to be the Bentley Bentayga with its 608 HP and its price in Spain of 241.484 euros.
