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.
