This Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

This Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 1This is despite the fact it is yet to formally confirm a local release for the mother of all Grand Cherokees, which takes its ballistic 527kW/874Nm 6.2-litre supercharged V8 from the mad Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat muscle-cars.

At one point the fastest SUV on the market, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is able to shoot to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and still carry the whole family to the beach, or wherever. Rather than just showing another video of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT barreling down the drag strip alone, Jeep UK opted to pit the SRT against a classic Hemi-powered Hot Rod.

This is an extremely weird race. Jeep lines up a 468-horsepower SUV with a 6.4-liter V8 against a hot rod with 304 hp. The company even admits at the beginning of the video that the Grand Cherokee SRT accelerates to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 4.5 seconds, and the modified Model A requires 6 seconds. With such a massive difference in specs, which one do you think wins?

The third most powerful vehicle behind the 545kW Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the 544kW Lamborghini Aventador S has so far generated a real buzz with Aussies who are quick on the draw. A mere 25 allocations of the original 200 remain, with one Jeep dealer we spoke to having already secured six orders in the past week alone.
