Porsche makes 4 different Cayenne models with prices that range from $41k to $114k before you add expensive Porsche options. Jeep claims that the Grand Cherokee SRT8 will do 0-60 in under 5 seconds and will be faster then the Porsche Cayenne Turbo which has a factory stated0-60 time of 5.4 seconds. This won’t make The Jeep the fastest SUV on the planet, the Porsche Cayenne Gemballa GT750 has a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds but its cost of $440,000 makes the SRT8 Jeep seem positively affordable. Jeep will sacrifice its trail rating on this model, to lower the center of gravity and increase stability during turns. The vehicle will still weigh in at close to 4,800 pounds so it is very important not to be top heavy.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will be the first full time four wheel drive vehicle for the Chrysler SRT group. It will get a 6.1 liter Hemi engine that will produce 425 horsepower, 25 less then the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, and 410 lbs of torque. Chrysler hopes the SRT group can do for Jeep what AMG did for Mercedes-Benz. AMG adds a more powerful sister to most of the Mercedes models while charging a premium of about $30,000.

Jeep doesn’t need to take on Lexus just yet, but buyers can’t hear wind howl, rattles or any other unexplainable sounds. Customer satisfaction is the key to building any brand or expanding into any new market categories.
The goal of the SRT8 Jeep is to provide Jeep buyers with an exotic while providing exotic buyers with a Jeep.
