Muscat - 

The high performance Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, sold in the sultanate by the official Jeep dealership, Dhofar Automotive, has been honoured by readers of the influential German magazine Auto Bild Sports Cars. The powerful 468hp model scooped the readers’ choice award for best import in the Vans and SUV category.

Commenting on the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the award, Rhett Maxwell, GM of Dhofar Automotive, said, “The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an extremely versatile SUV with immense capability, both on and off the road. It seamlessly melds Jeep’s legendary off-road prowess with class-leading technology, features and comfort, all at an extremely competitive price point. The Grand Cherokee SRT is the ultimate version of the model that combines the versatility of the SUV with one of the most powerful naturally aspirated engines in the world, a combination that most enthusiasts will be hard-pressed to ignore. This is also the reason why the famously knowledgeable readers of the magazine have chosen this Jeep model as a winner, underlining the huge appeal of the sports-inspired premium SUV.”

The 2017 edition of the awards saw a total of 110 models compete across 15 categories. Among the standout features that saw the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT win its category, was its 6.4l HEMI V8 naturally aspirated engine. Generating 468hp of power and an impressive torque of 624Nm at just 4,100rpm without a turbocharger from its hemispherical combustion chambers. In fact, it is considered one of the last high-performance naturally aspirated engines currently available on sale. The award demonstrated the range and versatility of the Jeep brand and proves that its extensive range of off-road vehicles and SUVs is winning over even the most demanding fans of high-performance vehicles in Germany.

Jeep Grand Cherokee is the flagship of the Jeep brand and the most awarded SUV ever. Since its introduction in 1992, it represents the Jeep benchmark in terms of power, comfort, innovation and craftsmanship. This year, Grand Cherokee celebrates 25 years of 4x4 leadership - a milestone anniversary underscoring how it has defined the premium SUV market, while bringing to life the Jeep brand's pioneering spirit and quest for technical innovation. The SUV is available in a full line-up with six trim levels: Laredo, Limited, Overland, Trailhawk, Summit and SRT. The brand will also be introducing the new Trackhawk in the first half of 2018. All models and variants included, the Grand Cherokee has sold more than six million units worldwide since its introduction 25 years ago.
