Over the past few weeks GeigerCars has been teasing us with pictures of a matte brown Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT on their Facebook page. Now they are ready to officially announced the car, and as it turns out it is the most powerful Jeep in the world!
The HEMI-powered Cherokee SRT never received the respect you would expect a 475 horsepower SUV to command. Then again, the car is not really known at all in Europe. But Geiger is determined to change that, and they have come up with a power package for the American SUV that will make everybody to take notice of this beast of a family bus.
The magnificent and characterful 6.4 liter supercharged V8 engine with hemispherical cylinder heads – hence the name HEMI – is fitted by the German tuner with an in-house developed 2.9-liter supercharger featuring a large intercooler and bespoke software upgrade with altered fuel and ignition software wired in. This results in a meaty upgrade to 718 horsepower and 776 Nm of torque, which in turn results in a 0-100 km/h time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 290 km/h.
Available options for GeigerCars Jeep Grand Cherokee (66,900 euros) include an oil cooler (1,430 euros), sport springs (1,250 euros), uprated anti-roll bars (650 euros), 10.0×22-inch alloy wheels shod with 305/35R22 (5,490 euros), and a lovely foil wrap in the color of your choice (2,900 euros).
