Meet the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT - Again

After all sorts of speculation over spy shots over the past few months, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is here and as you can tell from the image above showing a new SRT Jeep, the spy photos all over the internet insisting that this is the 707hp Hellcat model are incorrect – although this new Jeep is a whole lot sportier up front.

670hp Ford Mustang Delayed in Australia by the Government

Ford Motor Company plans to offer a 670 horsepower version of the Ford Mustang GT with a Roush supercharger package at Australian dealerships with a full warranty, but the Australian regulatory process has caused a delay in the automaker launching these high performance models – forcing owners of the popular new Mustang to search elsewhere in their quest for more power.

Dodge Hellcat Challenger with the Manual Trans Hits 60 in 1st, Too

After doing a piece earlier this week about the new Camaro ZL1 being able to get to 60mph in first gear with the manual transmission, a handful of Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat owners contacted me to point out that their manual transmission muscle cars will do the same – and they can do it in about 4 seconds flat.
