The front of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT gives an imposing look
with its seven rectangular slats that make up the front grille. The adaptive
Bi-Xenon high intensity discharge (HD) headlamps, the signature daytime running
lamps and the premium fog lamps all add to the good looks of the vehicle. These
head lamps come with auto high beam control. Not to miss are the dual heat
extractors on the hood which gives aerodynamically brilliant styling to the
front portion of the vehicle. The huge vehicle sits on 20 inch polished 5-spoke
Goliath wheels with Pirelli tyres which come as standard on the Grand Cherokee
With minimum overhangs in front and rear, the vehicle has a ground
clearance of 210mm and a water fording depth of 508mm. Not to miss are the body coloured power
folding mirrors, the roof rails and the dual pane panoramic sunroof.
Step inside the cabin and you experience the trappings of a rich
world. The front two seats of the driver and co-driver come with an eight-way
power adjustment. The leather seats with perforation are actually ventilated
seats. The second row is 60/40 folding. The SRT has seating for five adults and
cargo space of 1025 litres that can be increased to 1945 litres when the rear
seats are folded.
The leather spread continues to the upper door trim, instrument
panel and centre armrest.
The SUV comes with dual zone automatic temperature control with
separate vents for the rear passenger. The rear view mirror is auto dimming
with a microphone. There is a large 8.4 inches touchscreen navigation radio
with voice command. For the rear passengers there is entertainment galore with two
9 inches screen mounted on the front seat backs. You can play your DVDs and
Blue ray discs from a small compartment tucked under the front arm rest. There
are separate ports for plugging in video games or other devices. For music
aficionados, the SRT comes with Harman Kardon Music System with 19 speakers.
Practical features like a park view rear back up camera and
sensors that assist you for front and rear parking, make things very convenient
for the driver. The steering is leather wrapped with audio, speed controls and
come with paddle shifters and voice recognition. The steering can be tilted and
telescopically adjusted by the touch of a lever button.
As part of the electronic offerings, the SRT also comes with a
push button ignition system which starts the engine once the brake pedal is
depressed. The remote key fob can simply be tucked away safely. As for the tail
gate, it can either be opened with the touch of a roof mounted button or
pressing the remote key fob. The tail gate can also be opened from the outside
by gently pressing a button at the rear. Shutting it can be done so by pressing
a button at the rear inner wall of the vehicle or with the help of the key fob.
The SRT also has a rain sensing wiper system.
