The optional 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 with Variable-valve Timing (VVT) generates 357 horsepower (259 kW) and 389 lb.-ft. (520 N•m) of torque. The HEMI’s fuel-saving Multi-displacement System (MDS) seamlessly shifts to smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and to V-8 mode when more power is in demand. The MDS system optimizes fuel economy without sacrificing vehicle performance or capability.

Jeep Grand Cherokee customers who want the assurance of full-time four-wheel drive without any switches or levers will find Quadra-Trac I® ideal. The NV140 single-speed transfer case splits torque 48/52 percent (front/rear) and is available on Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with the 3.7-liter V-6 engine.

Jeep Grand Cherokee’s Quadra-Trac II® 4x4 system gives customers the benefit of the NV245 two-speed active transfer case and the Brake-traction Control System (BTCS).

The Quadra-Drive II® Jeep 4x4 system offers customers the ultimate in off-road capability. It combines the NV245 full-time transfer case with an Electronic Limited-Slip Differential (ELSD) for unsurpassed tractive performance.

Jeep Grand Cherokee’s four-wheel-drive systems are Trail Rated®.

2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

As the first four-wheel-drive SRT vehicle, Jeep Grand Chrokee SRT8® is the quickest, most powerful Jeep vehicle ever, offering astonishing on-road and all-weather capability and power. The specially developed four-wheel-drive system propels Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 from 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds—quicker than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and BMW X5—0-100-0 in low 19-second range and 60-0 mph in approximately 125 feet.

Powered by a 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 that produces 420 horsepower (313 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 N•m), the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 delivers the complete performance package with exceptional ride and handling, world-class braking, race-inspired interior appointments and functional, performance-oriented exterior enhancements.

For example, the front fascia provides aerodynamic benefits by reducing lift and drag, while providing sufficient air flow to cool the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 engine. The front fascia also helps increase brake-system cooling through integrated air ducts.

The rear fascia incorporates an aggressive center cut-out in order to accommodate dual 4-inch exhaust tips. Sill extensions result in another functional enhancement by creating downforce.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8’s cabin features an SRT signature race-inspired interior. Seats with added bolstering and a performance fabric insert keep occupants firmly in place under spirited driving conditions. A dark slate gray interior color, accent stitching on the seats and a unique SRT-designed leather-wrapped steering wheel are some of the highlights. Full instrumentation includes a 180-mph (300-kph) speedometer, tachometer and temperature gauges, all trimmed with a unique blue accent.

Providing horsepower and torque to the unique SRT four-wheel-drive system is a specially tuned version of the HEMI engine, which was developed by adding more displacement, increasing the compression ratio and redesigning cylinder heads, intake and exhaust systems for better flow and increased engine speed.

Power from the 6.1-liter HEMI is sent through a special torque converter to an SRT-upgraded, five-speed automatic transmission with specially calibrated driver-selectable Auto Stick, which offers a fully automatic or manual shift selection.
