2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT video review

I really like the new Grand Cherokee. And I really like unreasonably large amounts of horsepower. So it stands to reason combining the two would make for a real hoot of a vehicle.

Delightfully, it does.

Yes, the new Grand Cherokee with its world-class exterior design and segment-leading interior refinement and technology is only made better by the addition of a 470-horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI V8.

That isn’t to say, though, it’s not without its fault. But don’t worry; we’ll get to that shortly.

    Great vid you guys need to do more automotive reviews

    To Mr. Arch Yeomans, 
    While you are correct about the pricing for the Cayenne Turbo S, which starts at around $146,000, you are wrong in your complaint. Mr. Jaynes specifically compared the Grand Cherokee to the Cayenne S, which features a starting price of around $67,000 (you can check this on Porsche's website: http://www.porsche.com/usa/models/cayenne/cayenne-s/). As for the 0 – 60 time, again the comparison is to the Cayenne S, not the Turbo. The normal S does have a 0 – 60 time of around 5.6 seconds (again, we refer you to the link above). 
    As for the brake issue, yes, during the review process we do put review vehicles through slightly heavier testing than your everyday user but the results are worth pointing out. We do recommend you take our reviewer's opinions with a grain of salt.
    Also, we do have Porsche fans and if you took our reviewer picking the Porsche brand over the Grand Cherokee as mockery than you are wrong. Clearly, Porsche has fans at Digital Trends, at least with our reviewer.
    Sir, if you are going to correct please do, but don't present false and/or biased opinions. It proves to be utterly useless in the long run.

    Great review, I can see why he said he'd rather take a Porsche Cayenne S over this car for the price because no matter how good the performance this Jeep out puts, at the end of the day, you're still driving a Jeep, versus a Porsche … for the price you're paying. But I'd still prefer to purchase this particular Jeep, I am in love with the design and performance. Driving this Jeep is like dating a pretty looking girl who is a little bit over weight but gives great blowjobs and sex in bed.

    This guy is a clown, i got my 14 srt 5 months ago and it runs 0-60 in 4.3s and a 1/4 mile of 13.3, i raced a 14 cayenne turbo s on my way to vegas and was nose to nose @ 145 mph, wait till add a supercharger and that 165k cayenne will be completely embarrassed, btw sir you know nothing about cars! Worse review ever, there's no cayenne in the 70k range you dumb ass!! Maybe a pre owned one,and even if i had the $ to afford one i would not buy one i've only seen girls driving them a man drives a man's car Porsches are for girls specially the cayenne, perhaps it would fit you better? Try to slam on those cayenne brakes 5 times in a row @ 60mph and they will overheat also!! Stupid stupid stupid review , you should be fired!!

    I wonder how much Porsche paid him to say that last remark.

  • July 10, 2014 at 5:06 am

    This car should have been on the Top Gear USA episode "Cool Cars for Grownups". Rutledge would would have looked cool driving one of these.

    6:46…..6500lbs? How much crack did you snort before shooting this? It's 5,150lbs. Might want to learn the different between GVWR and curb weight before attempting reviews.

    I don't know how you get all that ego into that little jeep.

  • September 17, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    Anyone considering buying one of these should give Mr Nick Jaynes' review any credibility he is full of crap with this joke of a review, they should instead do their homework and see what a more credible and un-biased source has to say about this great machine.

    Try and compete with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and we'll see !!!

  • December 27, 2014 at 5:12 am

    (Bad Transmission Prob"s) Look it up. My srt8 Jeep all rims are chipping and they will not fix! Don't Buy. RUN RUN RUN

  • July 5, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    maybe the homeless man just really liked the vehicle and meant, "that's a bad man!" as in "thats one baddddddd muthafucka!"

  • November 12, 2015 at 3:21 am

    6500 ibs? that must be incorrect…. I believe it's just over 5000 ibs.

    Who is this moron ? Absolute drivel your facts are all over the shop and mostly incorrect

  • January 26, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    I own a 14 GCSRT and I must admit I liked the review up until the very end. Compete with the Germans HA!!!! I eat Beamers Audi and my favorite snack mustangs up ….Sir … the SRT is badass we also have a 15 392 SRT Charger….. I guess I'm kinda one side… LOL!

  • March 20, 2017 at 12:49 am

    Why would the srt jeep have 470hp and the cars have 485?? The Jeep weighs 800 lbs more then those cars, so I would expect it to have atleast 485 and cars have 470, my 15 srt Jeep hit 4.6 0-60, after I did my cai, tune, exhaust. I hit 4.2, some people hit 3.9 0-60!! Mine is getting supercharged as we speak!! Videos coming soon..

    I wonder how many times they had to slam on the breaks to get them smoking.

  • May 24, 2018 at 10:02 am

    LOL ‘Jeep interiors were on par with death row holding cells.’

    I own a 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trail Hawk and love it. Powerful, handles great, luxury bells and whistles galore. Brand new and hoping it stays out of the service department!

    Great Review:  You may think this review is funny; however, I suggest that you take it very seriously.  The reviewer is being funny for many reasons you may not identify immediately, but you will.  Has anyone ever provide a full video review of the
    functionalities of the JEEP SRT.  For example, audio, navigation, engine, steering (driving in straight-line), body
    inspection, memory settings, wipers, and etc.  I have completed some research, and I have never seen so many JEEP SRT
    for resale.  I did made some phone calls to sellers, and did get some feedbacks regarding functionality issues.  Let me know what you think.

    I’m pretty sure you’re still about half the price of “Cayenne S territory”
