NEWS - Jeep announce new Grand Cherokee SRT; the Red Vapor Limited Edition

The latest instalment of the Jeep Grand Cherokee has impressed many since its arrival, and to continue the street appeal Jeep has announced details of a formidable new SRT version, the Red Vapor Limited Edition. It certainly nods to its American roots with a name that fits right in on the other side of the pond, given that other cars are coming out including "Raptor" and "Hellcat". But make no mistake; this is a serious car and can hold its own with the big players.

There is an increasing demand for high-performance SUVs, and thus the Red Vapor was born. With a new 6.4-litre V8 engine, this Grand will offer all the presence of Jeep SRT’s legendary muscular sports styling with breath-taking performance. Top speed is 160mph while 0-62mph takes just five seconds. That’s right, FIVE. In a car this big.

“Styled and targeted to the high performance SUV market and with an exceptional level of equipment on offer, the Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor is very attractively priced,” says Damien Dally, head of brand, Jeep UK. “With its sporting look, powerful performance and excellent value for money, this limited edition of SRT will, I am sure, appeal to a whole new group of discerning customers.”

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor will cost £64,999 (OTR) when it goes on sale later this week. That represents one of the best performance and equipment levels against price in its segment, and that’s certainly not to be sniffed at. It’s just a shame I’ll most probably never get to drive one…
