In his notes about the hottest Grand Cherokee, Esquire writer David Granger described it as the “most surprising and rewarding vehicle” he had driven all year.
“The one sonic experience of the year that I will not forget is engaging the ignition on the SRT. This is the sweetest-sounding, most reasonably priced engine note of our time. The car is a bad-ass, both in performance and appearance. The twin scoops on the hood are evil and subtle at the same time.”
“The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT combines impressive performance and luxury wrapped in a muscular and stylish exterior,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports. “Winning Esquire’s ‘SUV of the Year’ award continues to help set us apart from esteemed competitors by appealing to the passionate, performance-enthusiast consumers with its unique blend of value, technology, power and character.”
This year, Esquire’s COTY selections focused on performance. The Grand Cherokee SRT was good company including the new Corvette, Mercedes-Benz CLA45 and Jaguar F-Type.
