When the new-gen Grand Cherokee arrives in 2022, SRT variant will no longer exist. Jeep confirmed that a couple of months ago. Until that happens, we are anticipating the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. It is a performance-oriented variant. SRT version comes with a strong V8 engine and an AWD system.
The Bodywork looks very aggressive and the sport-tuned suspension is included. Basically, SRT trim level offers the same amenities as the Summit trim. However, the difference is a powerful output. For 2020, Jeep will introduce a couple of minor upgrades.
Grand Cherokee SRT Comes With an Aggressive Design
You may find regular Grand Cherokee as a rugged SUV. However, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is something else. SRT trim level looks very aggressive and sporty at the same time. The front part wears a famous seven-slot grille and lower intake is significantly larger. Its beasty look is highlighted by the perfect styling and aggressive bumpers.
Aerodynamics are impressive and Grand Cherokee SRT offers a lot of standard exterior features. For the start, a 20-inch titanium wheels are in the offer. On the other hand, 20-inch forged aluminum rims are optional. SRT variant offers up to nine exterior colors.
What we like about the interior of the new 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a cabin dressed up with carbon-fiber materials. Leather surfaces, faux-suede accents and other high-quality materials are just boosting the feel of luxury. Passenger room is ample in both rows. There will be room for five passengers.
From the inside, Grand Cherokee SRT is behind its competitors in terms of luxury. After all, this is a performance-oriented SUV. Sure, you will get massaging seats and plenty of customization. Whatsoever, Summit trim level offers the same list of standard and optional features for less money.
Engine Specs, Acceleration, Towing
This is the category that makes new 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT so impressive. Under its hood, a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 offers an impressive performance. SRT version is producing 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Yes, this is far from the Trackhawk variant and its 707-hp supercharged V8 unit.
However, this will justify almost every customer on the planet. SRT accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.3 seconds. On top of that, this SUV can tow up to 7250 pounds. Grand Cherokee SRT also comes with a sport-tuned suspension and adaptive dumpers. This will provide stiffer handling and better ride quality.
It may sound strange, but most of the buyers care about the fuel economy. The forthcoming 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a model to avoid if you care about the fuel efficiency. Whatsoever, this is one of the worst SUVs in the segment when it comes to this category.
Interestingly, a 707-hp Trackhawk is slightly below the SRT trim level in terms of fuel expenditure. Grand Cherokee SRT provides 19 mpg on the highway. However, in real-world, fuel economy is rated at 18 mpg. Sadly, its rivals are offering much better efficiency.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Price and Release Date
If you want to buy the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, you’ll have to pay $70,000. It is a lot of money, but if you want something unique and powerful, go for it.
However, we strongly recommend the Trailer Tow Group and the high-performance brake package. This will additionally raise the price, but it is worth it. Jeep will release new Grand Cherokee in the coming months.
