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).

While we cannot confirm whether the Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat can reach 60mph in less than 3 seconds, we can definitely see in order to reach the speed of 200mph, how many horsepower the HEMI V8 engine need to make.

Breaking: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat Is Coming

Are you impressed with the 707hp 2015 Dodge Challenger/Charger SRT Hellcat? Do you want a SUV with similar output? Now Jeep is going to help you with that.

The final production version of the Grand Cheroke...

The careful reader may notice one thing from Chrysler: its engines are missing some modern key technologies: direct injection and turbocharging. The reason for this is: it takes an auto maker a lot of knowledge reserve and R&D to make direct injection and turbocharging production-ready. And it seems the day is finally coming for Chrysler now.


According from a report from Automotive News, Chrysler i...

Analysis: IIHS released latest small overlap crash test ratings for 9 midsize SUVs

Today IIHS released the latest testing result for 9 midsize SUV models.


Two GM SUVs earned a “Good” ratings. From the IIHS released vedio, during the crash test these two SUVs (Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain) use the strategy of “sliding pass” the crash object, prevent the direct impact to the occupant safety cage. In several past tests, Volvo also use the similar methods to earn a “Good” rating.

The Toyota Highlander, which earned an “Acceptable” rating, uses the strategy that the engine compartment absorbs part of the impact energy, and the occupant safety cage (especially the driver side A pillar) has direct impact with the crash object, and the A pillar withheld the ...
