Re: Pricing on Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Announced
I haven't seen it posted here, so here's the Canadian Jeep GC SRT8 Pricing:
Jeep® Announces Pricing for All-New 2006 Grand Cherokee SRT8
Windsor, Ontario, Dec 02, 2005
Quickest, Most Powerful Jeep Ever Combines 420-horsepower HEMI® and:
All-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 priced at $48,495
SRT performance: Zero to 97 km/h in less than five seconds
Quicker than Porsche Cayenne Turbo, BMW X5
Jeep® announced pricing today for the ultimate performance sport-utility vehicle, the all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.
Boasting a pair of firsts – the first Jeep-branded Street and Racing Technology (SRT) vehicle and the first four-wheel drive SRT vehicle – the all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is available for $48,495. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 arrives in showrooms this January.
“As the newest addition to the SRT brand, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 sets a new benchmark for performance in a sport utility vehicle,” said Mike Accavitti, Vice President, Marketing, DaimlerChrysler Canada. “For half the price of many of its competitors, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is arguably one of the most outrageous street-legal production vehicles available.”
Powered by a 6.1-litre HEMI engine producing 420 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, the all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 gets power to the pavement through an SRT-engineered full-time four-wheel-drive system. With a 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) time of less than five seconds, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is quicker than Porsche Cayenne Turbo and BMW X5, and is the second-quickest SRT vehicle, eclipsed only by the 510-horsepower Dodge Viper SRT10.
The all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 features world-class ride and handling, benchmark braking, functional, performance-oriented exterior design and race-inspired interior appointments.
Ride and handling are enhanced with improvements including SRT-tuned dampers, unique sway bars, and specially tailored suspension bushings and spring rates. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) was specially calibrated for the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.
The braking system of the all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 includes Brembo four-piston calipers clamping 360 x 32 mm vented rotors in front, and 350 x 26 mm rotors in the rear.
An all-new front fascia reduces lift and drag, and incorporates ducts to direct air to cool the brakes. Side sill extensions create downforce, while a new rear fascia features an aggressive center cutout for 4-inch dual exhaust tips.
Three exterior colors are offered: Bright Silver, Brilliant Black and Inferno Red.
Inside, the all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is equipped with power-adjustable front seats with aggressive bolsters and performance suede inserts. Comprehensive instrumentation is trimmed with blue accents while the center stack, shifter bezel and door-switch bezels are trimmed with a “refined aluminum” finish. The 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 interior is offered in Medium Slate.
