GME feeds Jeep Grand Cherokee a Strength +30% power-up
Trailhawk may be the best-performing modification of Jeep Grand Cherokee on the market, but it isn’t available in Europe. What do we, hi-end SUV fans, do in a situation like this? Yes, we buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and take it to German Motors & Engineering for a nice performance boost.
Apparently, turning a cross-country vehicle into a veritable racecar isn’t so hard after all. All you need to do is optimize fuel injection, improve the engine control firmware and install a patented supercharger jointly developed with the US-based aftermarket parts manufacturer Edelbrock. And there you go: your stock 6.4-liter engine, which has previously been struggling to output 468 hp (350 kW), now effortlessly delivers 620 hp (462 kW). A Strength +30% power-up, indeed.
GMT builds each 3”-diameter exhaust system manually and can fit it out with carbon nozzles if you’re into that sort of thing. It also ships the vehicle with new sport-grade suspension and forged wheels clad in performance tires.
You may grab your own Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT with the upgrade kit already installed at €99,000. Oh, and you may as well save the money and wait, because the same tuner team will be releasing another upgrade soon, to no less than 1,000 hp (750 kW) this time around.
