The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT just landed an enviable spot on U.S. News & World Report’s List of the Best V8 SUVs on the Market.

“The availability of an optional V8 serves as a gateway to performance that can shame many sports cars,” says Nick Kurczewski, writer at U.S. News & World Report.

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT offers you two V8 options for optimal power.

“The Grand Cherokee SRT will push you back into your seat when you punch the gas, thanks to its 475-horsepower HEMI® V8,” reports Kurczewski. “But it’s the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, with its 707-horsepower supercharged V8 taken directly from the Challenger Hellcat muscle car, that’s the main attraction. Scary fast and outrageous fun, it’s not cheap ($86,650), but it doesn’t need to be.”

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT features a sport hood, 20-inch by 10-inch Satin Carbon split five-spoke wheels, and an SRT rear deck lid badge. The interior is equipped with Nappa leather non-Laguna door trim and Gloss Carbon Spears instrument panel and doors.

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk sports an exterior “Trackhawk” badge and 20-inch by 10-inch forged polished face wheels. Sound is pumped through nine amplified speakers with subwoofer.

All trims feature a long list of standard safety features including Blind-Spot and Cross-Path Detection, ParkSense Rear Park-Assist with Stop, traction control, and an Enhanced Accident Response System.
