Jeep created excitement among car enthusiasts by announcing Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor Limited Edition in September 2014. The company has now revealed that this brand new model would be available for a grand £64,999 in UK.
The special edition made a public debut at Paris Motor Show last year. The exterior brilliantly shone with stunning Metallic Red body paint. But the company is planning to offer two more choices to buyers- Bright White and Brilliant Black. The Black Vapor chrome 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels were yet another attention grabbing feature. The royal looks continue on the inside, with the steering wheel and gear knob adorned with Black Laguna leather. To make the cabin even more attractive, carmakers have used Radar Red suede upholstery along with red stitching.
It is not just the looks that are impressive. The car is excellent in terms of facilities too. The 825-watt 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system ensures all that music lovers would want. The Uconnect infotainment system features 8.4-inch touch screen. Also present is Bluetooth audio streaming, 3D navigation, hands free technology and voice recognition. Driver assistance and safety are taken care of by cross-path detection, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, power tailgate and rear light bar.
A top-notch performance is made possible by a HEMI 6.4-liter V8 engine. The power output is a massive 461 bhp and the torque produced is 625 Nm. An eight-speed automatic gearbox channels this power to a Quadra-Trac four-wheel drive system. Armed with such fantastic technology, Jeep’s Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor is capable of hitting the top speed of 267 km/hr. It can sprint from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 5 seconds. All the models shall be equipped with anti-lock SRT performance disc brakes, an active damping suspension and Fuel Saver technology.
