Grand Cherokee SRT8

The all-new WK Grand Cherokee debuted in 2004 for the 2005 model year. Features available for the first time in a Jeep included Quadra-Drive II four wheel drive and a rear-seat DVD player.

The design still emphasizes power and luxury, with significant work done on improving noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH). However, for the first time, Jeep also emphasized on-road performance to a similar extent as the cornerstone of its brand, off-road capability.

This newfound emphasis on on-road refinement led Jeep to replace the live-axle with leading-arms front suspension found in the ZJ and WJ, prized by off-roading Jeep fans for its ability to maintain consistent ground clearance and provide optimal wheel articulation, with a double-wishbone independent setup like that which debuted in the 2002 Liberty. Jeep changed its philosophy due to what it perceived as increasing demand in the SUV marketplace for on-road performance and decreasing demand for off-road capability.

Displacement    Engine    Power    Torque
3.7 L    PowerTech V6    210 hp (157 kW)    235 lbf-ft (319 N-m)
4.7 L    PowerTech V8    235 hp (175 kW)    305 lbf-ft (414 N-m)
5.7 L    Hemi V8    330 hp (246 kW)    375 lbf-ft (508 N-m)
6.1 L    Hemi V8    420 hp (313 kW)    420 lbf-ft (569 N-m)
3.0 L    Mercedes-Benz CRD V6    215 hp (160 kW)     376 lbf-ft (510 N-m)


An SRT-8 version of the Grand Cherokee debuted at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. Powered by a 420 hp (310 kW) version of the 6.1 L Hemi, it also features upgraded Brembo brakes, a special transfer case, an electronic all-wheel-drive system and interior and exterior updates. It is the fastest naturally-aspirated production SUV.
