DaimlerChrysler has launched a new multimedia web site featuring each of their SRT vehicles.
The site includes more information on the powerful beast that is the new Grand Cherokee SRT-8.
Behold the quickest, most powerful Jeep® vehicle ever created. The fearsome big-bore 6.1-liter HEMI® V8 with 420 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque brings the ultimate performance sport utility to life with more power per liter than the legendary 426 Street HEMI that ruled the urban jungles of the 1960s and 1970s.
