Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Posts 8:49 Nrburgring Time – Videos

Armed with the “Queen of the Nürburgring” Sabine Schmitz behind the wheel, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 attempted to portray itself as a serious performance machine by taking on the Green Hell.

The results may be a bit disappointing though, especially compared to its closest competitor that has ran the ‘Ring which is the BMW X6 M. The Grand Cherokee SRT8 turned in an 8:49 time, which compared to the X6 M’s 8:24 seems… a little bit embarrassing.

Nonetheless, SRT is happy with the results still bragging that the Grand Cherokee SRT8 is “one of the fastest SUV in the world.” Packing 470-hp under the hood, there’s no doubt the Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a great performer, it just might not be the most ideal vehicle to take on the Nordschleife without any other modifications.

The two-time 24 Hours of Nürburgring champion Schmitz however called the SRT8 a “house on wheels” that “just stuck” while she piloted it through the course.

In the Grand Cherokee SRT8’s defense however, it is faster than the Porsche Cayenne GTS and the Range Rover Sport V8 supercharged.

Watch the two videos of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 at Nürburgring after the break.
