In July photos surfaced of a pre-production Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT wearing a never-before-seen front end. We assumed the mystery Jeep was the inbound Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat, but it turns out the vehicle was actually a tester for the revised 6.4-liter powered SRT model.
Fiat Chrysler has yet to provide official details on the revised 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, however today it quietly released a video of the SUV driving on its YouTube page. From the footage we can see the exterior revisions will include new LED foglamps, a larger lower grille section and a trio of small vents just below the standard seven-bar Jeep grille.
The video also gives us a short look at the 2017 Grand Cherokee SRT’s mildly updated cabin. The SRT-branded steering wheel has been traded in for a stitched Jeep-branded one, while Jeep’s notorious electronic T-shifter has been swapped for a more conventional gear selector. We can also see the tachometer has been moved to the center of the gauge cluster and the speedometer off to the left – just like on a conventional performance car.
We’re still waiting for official word from FCA on the updated Grand Cherokee SRT, so be sure to check back soon for more info. In the mean time, you can get acquainted with the new SUV in the video above.
