Re: 2014 SRT Grand Cherokee REVEALED
few tidbits from Dave Cottrell...MR enginner on the 2014 SRT Grand Cherokee
-rear hatch panel with "Jeep" logo is removable if you want to shave emblem etc.
-this is the fastest jeep SRT....period!
-the new 8 speed tranny adapts to the driver and his/hers habits. It can sense WOT and change automatically to track mode.
-tranny shifts are smooth and not jerky like the old 5 speed...much better power distribution.
-The tranny automatically rev matches in paddle mode keeping the 6.4 in a HUGE powerband
-track tuning is the same as the 13'(learned that the 12' has a different power distribution in track mode from the 13' 14') 70% of power is trandferred to the rear wheels for better accelleration. FYI-the 13' is faster than the 12' in accelleration according to test driver Marco Diniz. But the 14' is the fastest, best handling Jeep SRT hes driven.
--the onelap Jeep was 12.5 second 1/4 mile Jeep. I was suprised at this...but marco said it was due to weight loss. It ran this in cooler weather.....unlike the 13.0 John Hammer ran with it in the middle of summer.
The HARDER you work...the LUCKIER you are!
