The Jeep SRT8 is the high performance variant of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Available for purchase since 2006, the SRT8 features a 6.1L Hemi V8 which produces 420 horsepower. With a 0-60 time of just 4.6 seconds, it has phenomenal performance which is at odds with it high weight and SUV status.
For comparison, here are several other 0-60 times:
Porsche Carrera S: 4.6
Porsche Cayenne Turbo: 4.9
Lexus IS350: 5.3
Chevrolet Corvette: 4.3
The SRT8 is priced quite well. Pricing for 2008 models starts at around 41k and ends in the high 40s for a fully loaded model. Thus, the SRT8 is a excellent blend of performance, prestige, practicality, and cost.
