Chrysler's iconic off-road division announces two new versions of its wickedly powerful SUV for the 2013 model year.
When you're one of the baddest trucks on the market, you don't need to change much. Maybe just your clothes. So for the 2013 model year, Jeep has introduced a pair of special editions of the Grand Cherokee SRT8. The spectacularly powerful SUV range has been bolstered by the Alpine and Vapor editions, boasting bright white paint and a shiny black coat respectively. Both come with 20-inch Black Vapor Chrome split five-spoke alloys and a smattering of glossy black trim.
Additional new features include a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel with mounted paddle shifters and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. The massive 6.4-liter Hemi V8 soldiers on with 470 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, enabling the SRT8 to sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds. MSRP for the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is $59,995 (plus $925 desitnation), and the special packages will set you back another $2,495.
