Re: 2014 SRT Grand Cherokee REVEALED

This is all great news!
The 2014 sounds like being the vehicle most of us hoped it was going to be upon release.

This Jeep is faster in every aspect according to the Jeeps gods, engineers and test driver....
The tranny is incredible and more details will be released soon. Is not 1 second faster from 30-70 mph better performance? how about 1.5 seconds faster from 50-90? Launch control is so precise and easy that a novice can turn the same exact times...first time, 10th time and 30th runs. This vehicle will get faster with miles....according to the experts..around 10k miles is the sweet spot. Another thing is the tranny tuning can read the owner and how he/she drives. It will automatically switch to track mode for instance if a WOT event happens!!!! No need to switch the button now! Launch mode will hold for as long as you want it too...and only disengages after a WOT event. Theer are so mnay cool performance upgrades...I am brain dead and will reveal later.
Thanks. Seconds, not tenths.

Re: 2014 SRT Grand Cherokee REVEALED

Kind of weird they are saying the rolling times are so much quicker. A full second and a half from 30-90mph quicker and so on. That is right in the thick of a quarter mile run and that should show an improved time. From all this talk Im already convinced its gonna run an 11.5 quarter right out of the box

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.
