Design And Interiors
The design of the the Grand Cherokee SRT is that of a purebred SUV. Big, Boxy and Muscular with a big grille up front and the rear as flat as a tack with smallish taillamps.
The major talking points about the sides are the pumped up wheel arches under which sit the 20-inch chrome 'Goliat' wheels and the Chrome Grand Cherokee Branding.
The interiors of the Grand Cherokee features a lot of leather with wood inserts on the dash. Dead centre sits the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Safety features of the Grand Cherokee SRT include 7 airbags, ESC, ABS, Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM), and All-Speed Traction Control and Trailer Sway Control (TSC) which activates if the system detects that the car has lost traction.
Availability And Rivals
The Jeep Cherokee SRT will arrive in India in the second half of 2016 and will go up against other large luxury SUVs like the Mercedes GLE, the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.
