In the latest scoops, two special editions of the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 – Alpine and Vapor, have been confirmed for Australia, adding extra attitude and exclusivity to the high-performance flagship SUV. The price for the special editions will be from $81,900 – a $5900 premium over the regular Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.
The special editions has been dressed in gloss black styling enhancement package that spreads across the bonnet and door badges, grille inserts and surrounds, rear step pad and rear light bar. The SRT badge that you see on the tailgate is also bespoke featuring a black flag rather than the red one seen on the standard SRT8, while 20-inch black chrome ‘Spider Monkey’ alloy wheels complete the premium look of these editions. The only difference, is the paint schemes, with the Alpine finished in Bright White and the Vapor splashed with Brilliant Black duco.
Under the hood lies the same, 344kW/624Nm 6.4-litre Hemi V8, five-speed automatic transmission and Quadra Trac active on-demand four-wheel-drive system. Whereas inside these, Alpine, and Vapor, both the variants feature a dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a 19-speaker 825-watt Harmon Kardon audio system.
It should be noted that, Alpine editions are in showrooms now, while Vapor editions will arrive in late January 2013. So stay tuned for more details until then click through the pictures.
