Limited to 95 units

Jeep has launched in South Africa a limited Alpine Edition of the 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8.

Based on the pre-facelift variant, the Alpine Edition comes with a Bright White paintjob with a Black Vapor Chrome finish for the 20-inch, 5-spoke alloys. In addition, there are various bespoke glossy black appointments like the hood badge, front grille surrounds and inserts, door badge, rear light bar and step pad, along with rear liftgate SRT8 badge accent.

Power comes from the same HEMI V8 6.4-liter engine producing 462 hp (344 kW) and 624 Nm (460 lb-ft) of torque. It takes five seconds to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run and is able to reach a top speed of 160 mph (257 km/h).

Already available at Jeep dealerships in South Africa, the special edition is limited to only 95 units and costs R864,990.

Alpine Edition for South Africa?! Sounds a bit weird to me. Let me propose other 'bespoke' versions: Sahara Edition in Canada, Polar Edition for India...

Wait, isn't this the VW Bluecross?! Oh wait, that's right - it's a Cherokee. Looks like VW copied heavily from the original. To me, this doesn't look bad at all. Personally, I think all manufacturers have to get over the "special editions" - there's a lot who do the same thing (BMW, Audi, Jaguar, Volvo, Infiniti, Lexus...the list goes on).

Black edition, Alpine edition.. they are running circles around the monochromatic spectrum for now. I predict the coming in the following years of new, more colorfull editions of the soon to be available facelift( Rising Sun edition(white with red dots) for Japan, Red Dragon edition for China and Kangoroo Edition(screaming yellow) - Australia..)It looks decent..but these unending editions make me laugh. Everybody can get a little special 'nothing' at the end of each generation with very few exceptions.. This is not one of them.

I'm not convinced. Nothing's really special about this over the standard SRT. This is probably just an attempt to keep the public interested until the facelift reaches the market. Although, compared to the prices of its rivals this is by far the cheapest in SA.
