The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT: America's Best Performance SUV Gets Even Better

The 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 was already one of the most capable true sport utility vehicles on the market but the predominantly high tech changes made to the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT improve performance, fuel economy, workhorse capability and daily drivability to make the best actual Sport Utility Vehicle sold in America that much better.

There really isn’t much competition in the world of ultra high performance sport utility vehicles that can do comparable work to a pickup truck, but the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 was very easily one of the best options on the market. If you take into account that the only real competition for the Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the $110k+ Porsche Cayenne Turbo, it can be said that the 2012 and 2013 was – dollar for dollar – the best high performance SUV sold in America. With that in mind, you would think that the Chrysler Group would be happy to continue into the 2014 model year with the same Jeep Grand Cherokee that pretty much everyone loved in 2012 and 2013. You would be thinking wrong though as SRT didn’t settle for good enough – adding new features inside and a new 8-speed transmission for the 2014 model year that make an already awesome SUV even more impressive.

I purchased a 2014 Jeep srt and I agree with your views on it. My best 0-60 is 4.1!! It is a fantastic vehicle!
I traded my 2010 yukon denali for a 2014 GC SRT, and all i have to say is WOW, this beast bu far is the most complete more fun to drive all around vehicle, i transport all kinds of vehicles for a living sure there are sports cars that are faster and fun to drive but on long trips they just get uncomfortable, this is a real SUV that will embarras a lot of so called performance street cars it embarrased my 2010 challenger SRT, my best 0-60 is 4.4, and 1/4 is 13.3, soon to add a full catback and a CAI hopefully those times will improve..
I recently bought a 2014 GC SRT and could not be happier. An awesome beast of a car. 0-60 in 4.2 is my best so far. Fun to drive and has all the bells and whistles to keep me entertained on a long drive. The stereo system is the best I have ever heard.
Love this vehicle! Just traded in my Jaguar XKR and Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Wanted something that could function as both vehicles in one. Found it in this SRT! Although I was skeptical at first (I really loved the XKR), the SRT far exceeded my expectations. Can't say enough about this truck/car!
