Latest Update: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat, Unable to Reach 200 MPH

Last month we have reported the existence of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat with the supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8.


Recently, some other automobile medias claim that, they have heard from their “source” that the upcoming Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat is able to reach a top speed of 200mph and run the 0-60 mph within 3 seconds (for example, this report).

According to our Chrysler insider, the company’s engineering team is working revising the 6.2L supercharged V8 engine, to make it suitable to sit inside the Grand Cherokee’s engine compartment. The project progress suggests an official debut in mid or late-2016 as the 2017 model.
