As Formula 1 drivers in real life like the move quickly, must provide their private cars, of course, plenty of power. And here's the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has to offer: Sparked the "utility vehicle" from the new 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine with 468 hp and a torque of 624 Newton meters. This engine does not fire the wheel drive vehicle in 4.8 seconds from zero to 96.6 km / h storm (60 mph). The discipline of 0 - 161 - 0 km / h is done by a Grand Cherokee SRT8 in the mid 16 seconds range, it covers the quarter mile from the state in the mid 13 seconds range, a top speed of 257 km / h and comes trozt the high weight of 96.6 km / h after 35.4 meters to a halt.

The fuel consumption seems indeed likely to play a minor role, but is nevertheless worth mentioning that the new V8 has a consumption-reducing cylinder deactivation, which separates four of the eight combustion chambers of the fuel supply when full V8 power is not needed.
