2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a Seriously Powerful SUV

Fast SUV has a higher towing capacity than the previous model

Jeep has unveiled the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT at the North American International Auto Show. The new SUV is very impressive with a 6.4-liter V8 engine producing 470 hp and 465 pound-foot of torque. The vehicle has a standard all-wheel drive system and has the capability of sending most of the torque to the rear wheels.

All that power goes through an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted with paddles behind the steering wheel. The new transmission gives the vehicle a towing capacity of 7200 pounds, which is 44% higher than the previous model. The SUV has a special Track Mode to optimize rear wheel drive characteristics for driving on track.

The 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT also comes with a new standard launch control feature. The truck also has an 8.4-inch touchscreen inside with an SRT exclusive Performance Page along with a seven-inch programmable multiview gauge cluster. Pricing and availability for the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT is unknown.

Oct 30 2014 5:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The story at Chrysler these days is the supercharged Hellcat V-8 engine. Seriously, it’s a 707-hp engine you can buy in one of two relatively normal and inexpensive vehicles, the Charger and the Challenger. As exciting as that is, what really gets us excited is figuring out what Chrysler product the Hellcat will end up in next. We had lunch with Ram Trucks’ new CEO, Bob Hegbloom, and we had to ask: When ...

Exploring in L.A.: Redone 2016 Ford Explorer Headed to Los Angeles Show

Oct 30 2014 12:41pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The refreshed 2016 Ford Explorer is coming sooner than we thought when we recently spied the thing—it’s just weeks away. Look for the crossover utility to debut at the fair-weathered, traffic-snarled smog capital of the U.S., Los Angeles. Ford’s mid-cycle update is rather late on arrival, although SUV buyers haven’t truly minded. Even though the Explorer’s popularity has waned since its 1990 debut and heydey in the early 2000s, the vehicle remains ...
