As you would imagine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a track car. It is, obviously, better around a track than a regular non-SRT, but just how good is it?
Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire was able to uncover some of its on-track characteristics, when he drove an example around Colorado’s Pueblo Motorsports Track, a circuit measuring just over two miles, featuring ten quite technical turns.
The Grand Cherokee SRT, which is rolling on Pirelli P-Zero rubber, proves highly maneuverable, even around the tighter sections, and Farah says it’s actually quite good at rotating under trail braking – it certainly looks like a vehicle that would behave like that…
He even manages to reel in and then pass a Subaru WRX, despite having a naturally aspirated engine that loses a notable amount of power at high altitude.
