Revised styling, upgraded interior

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has been spied undergoing testing.

Modestly disguised, the prototype is wearing a standard facelifted body. It features a new front fascia with a revised grille and restyled headlights.

The cabin has a new instrument cluster, revised switch gear and an updated infotainment system with a larger display. We can also see a new gear knob and additional metallic accents.

Power will likely come from a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine with 470 hp (350 kW / 476 PS) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. It should enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 160 mph (257 km/h).

The facelifted Grand Cherokee could be introduced at the 2013 North American International Auto Show.

Looking at the interior shot why would they have a laptop and other gear in the car if it is a nose makeover. The gear selector looks new too, so maybe a batter gearbox - 6 or at least a 7 speed to match MB.

IF this is a facelift, why would the do that it's only one year old, give it a 6 or 7 speed transmisson right away.

Actually, I believe this is more an update than a proper facelift just to get it in line with the rest of the CJD offerings. The 300C already has the 8 speed auto.

I believe we are looking at just the 2013 facelift of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It just has an SRT steering wheel on this test vehicle not that it is an SRT vehicle.

As much as that video was scary and highlighted a problem (assuming there was no trickery involved), I'm sure they have adjusted the ESP and traction control measures to sort it out by now. Otherwise, you would already have news reports of tens of thousands of Grand Cherokee's roll over accidents everywhere!
