High octane super Jeep arrives: buy it and fly it

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has drifted into town wearing a $106,990 price tag. This Street and Racing Technology version is powered by the new 6.4-litre Hemi V8 engine producing 344kW and 624Nm of torque (4.8 seconds 0-100) and has fuel saving MDS cylinder shutdown to help get it between pumps. Fuel consumption is rated at 13 litres per 100km overall, which is quite good for an engine of this output, but Jeep recommends it be run on 98 octane go lotion. And don't plan on off-roading it as the suspension has been lowered and those expensive 20 inch rims won't mix well with rocks and tree roots.
