The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a car that has had everyone talking. Clearly, there is something good about this SUV, and given its badge is one that comes from a car brand that holds a lot of esteem in the auto world, it must be something solid. What I can say is that, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a car that has done itself justice.
What it’s good at, it fulfills it without holding anything back, and where its drawbacks lie, it doesn’t try to fill the holes with anything substandard, but it tries nonetheless. Just know that, the SUV has gotten most of the things right: overall, it’s a solid ride, which has incredible handling and gives it the edge to be an absolute monster when you unleash its power. Jeep has done something with this one, so much that it will satisfy any jeep enthusiast out there.
The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT feels like a huge monster once it hits the road and you’re behind the wheel. In addition, it’s pretty rigid and rugged, which is what being an SUV means; and it certainly does it better than other SUV in its category. But don’t let its rugged nature fool you; because driving this car certainly feels comfortable enough, given its chassis is that of a normal car. Also, it handles pretty well, even when you go off-road.
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT – Exterior and Interior Redesign
On the one hand, the exterior of this SUV is pretty much still the same, but it does work. The new added features are also what make the car stand-out the most, because they are distinctive. The most distinctive thing is the new set of high-intensity-discharge headlights, which are sleek. The wheels are 17-inch, which is pretty much standard, and it comes with roof-rails on either side of the roof, and the identifiable seven-slotted grille is still intact. Otherwise, the rest of the exterior is still the same.
Much can be said about the interior, but one thing about it, is that it’s comfortable. However, it is a little confined, which is ironic given the car is huge from the outside: the windows are small and the sills are high, which give it this cramped characteristic. Otherwise, most of the design, including the materials used, remain unchanged, even with the new added trims. However, the standard features have been improved, and as you will come to see from other models, like the Trailhawk and the Latitude Plus, the features get even more sophisticated.
For example, there is ambient lighting, a leather steering wheel, audio controls, and the like. Much like its small and confined interior, the storage area and the cargo space is equally small. Unfortunately, this remains unchanged. It looks like you’ll have to deal with this small and hard-to-load storage space for a while, before something can actually be done about it.
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT – Engine and Performance
The engine of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is the same: a 2.4-liter V-6 engine, which works with a 9-speed automatic gear system. However, the 2.4-liter engine doesn’t match the weight of the SUV. It is why the 3.2-liter V-6 engine is more preferable. The former makes the performance of the Cherokee to be a bit less-efficient and demanding, but the latter is more desirable since it’s able to carry the weight of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 2019.
Otherwise, the performance is rugged, hefty and pretty much comfortable for a car of its caliber. It handles well on-road and even better off, which is its most definitive feature. The transmission of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is unchanged: a 9-speed automatic gear sifter, which works exceptionally well for both off-road and on-road use. The downshifting, however, delays a bit.
The fuel economy is the one thing the 2019 Grand Cherokee SRT fails at: it could use a bit of work. This is mostly because the SUV is heavy, making the fuel consumption quite disastrous. This is mostly with the 2.4-liter engine, but with the 3.2-liter option, the fuel economy is a bit lenient.
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT – Release Date and How Much will Cost?
As of now, the full release hasn’t been done, therefore the price and release info are still unknown. But it won’t be long now before the full reveal is done. The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT has its drawbacks, but the good does out-way the bad. This SUV from Jeep has the makings and the potential to be something special. Correction; the Cherokee is special. Granted it doesn’t have everything correct, jeep has certainly outdone itself.
