2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 Preview
Jeep releases the Jose Canseco of SUVs
Sharing the stage with another memorable new release, the 2006 Jeep Commander, the Grand Cherokee SRT-8 made its debut at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. Pricing has not been released, but shoppers can expect to see the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 this fall.
Signifying the first time an SRT badge has been worn by a Jeep vehicle, the 2006 Grand Cherokee SRT-8 probably won't be the last if it gets the expected response. On the outside, the SRT-8 version of the Grand Cherokee differs by using five-spoke, 20-inch alloy wheels with 255/45 Goodyears in front and 285/40 Goodyears in back; a massive front air dam and lower body kit; a rear air dam; and the deletion of the roof rack.
