One car I wouldn’t mind parked in the driveway is the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, I mean who wouldn’t when it has 6.4L Hemi V8 packing 344kw and 624nm that does 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds has a top speed of 255 km/h and brakes from 100-0 km/h in 35 meters.
Offered as part of the initial launch phase of the new Jeep flagship, the SRT Alpine and Vapor limited editions enhance the Grand Cherokee SRT8’s already stunning appearance with the addition of a number of stylish design accents.
The Alpine is finished in Bright White ‐ a limited colour for the Grand Cherokee SRT8 line-up, whilst Brilliant Black graces the Vapor’s exterior, and both colour-ways feature stunning SRT design 20‐inch split five‐spoke wheels finished in black chrome.
In both editions, the Jeep bonnet badge and Grand Cherokee door badges are exchanged in favour of gloss black lettering. Each vehicle receives gloss black grille inserts housed within gloss black grille surrounds. Continuing the striking monochromatic theme, the rear step pad is finished in gloss black, while the rear light bar receives the same treatment.
The SRT badge found on the tailgate is also tweaked, featuring a black flag as the accent colour rather than red as seen on the standard Grand Cherokee SRT8.
Extra specifications included on both editions include the addition of a dual pane panoramic sunroof and 19 speaker SRT high performance audio system.
The Alpine and Vapor Grand Cherokee SRT8s will be limited to 200 units each. Alpine editions are now available in Jeep dealerships, whilst Vapor editions will go on sale late January 2013.
Both variants are priced at $81,900 Base Vehicle Price (BVP*).
