sgCarMart – The Grand Cherokee SRT8 is probably the most aggressive 4x4 to be associated with the legendary Jeep, whose military involvement has earned it a spot as one of the world's most iconic off-roader.
The similarity, however, stops at the moniker because this Jeep was not made for the jungle. Instead, in SRT8 guise, it packs more muscles than one would ever need to venture on unbeaten tracks.
Under its sleeves are also some clever technologies, such as Multi Displacement System (MDS) which puts four of the eight cylinders to rest during idling or low engine load.
While we seldom associate off-road champions with tarmac burners, our market has seen an ensemble of these 'performance SUVs', specifically those from the people who loves bread, bratwursts and beer - think X5 M, G55 AMG, Cayenne Turbo, etc.
Hence, we question the relevance of this odd breed. They are bestowed with road skewing abilities but yet they aren't the best on tracks. Plus, body kits and lowered ride heights diminish their off-road prowess.
Consumer's behaviour/demand, however, isn't exactly based on relevance. For the well heeled, these may just be the perfect tools of commute.
