Pricing on Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Announced

DaimlerChrysler announces pricing on Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

It's faster than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the BMW X5 with a 0-60 time of less than 5 seconds, and yet it's a fraction of the cost at a mere $39,995 including $675 for destination. The only 4x4 SRT model in DaimlerChrysler's lineup and the first SRT vehicle in the Jeep lineup is powered by Chrysler's 6.1 liter Hemi engine with 420 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, and it's coming to show rooms near you in Bright Silver, Inferno Red and Brilliant Black.

The only SRT model faster than the Jeep is the 510 hp Dodge Viper SRT10. That's one mean mutha trucka.

If only these prices carried over the water. With a 300 SRT8 costing £38,995 i'm guessing this will be around the £40k too. Still, even at that it represents the best, " bang for your buck" to hit uk soil to date. Our first units are due in the UK late summer and I can't wait!

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:

Four-Wheel Drive

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.

Functional Performance

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.

Available Premium Amenities

Available features on the all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 include:

Heated, power-adjustable front seats
Power sunroof with one-touch express open and close
Rain-sensing automatic wipers
Rear-seat video system with overhead screen and DVD in center floor console
DVD-based navigation system with turn-by-turn directions and voice prompts
SIRIUS Satellite Radio
UConnect™ with Bluetooth™ technology that recognizes up to seven different Bluetooth-equipped cellular phones and responds to voice commands for hands-free conversations.

The all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is built at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit.
