Procharged Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Built to Roast GT-Rs Has 700 AWHP

Once you get behind the wheel of an SRT-massaged Jeep Grand Cherokee, you quickly forget you're inside an SUV, as the driving dynamics are top notch. However, the factory stock muscle of the thing is not enough for some and this is where tuned incarnations of the all-wheel-drive Mopar-powered machine step in.

The latest example of this comes from the 2010 Grand Cherokee SRT8 in the video below, which enjoys spending its time at the drag strip.

The no-longer-an-offroader now uses a 426ci stroker kit and, more importantly, a Procharger - those of you who are unfamiliar with this should know we're talking about what is basically a belt-driven turbo.

The owner of the car explains the engine was built to deal with 14 psi of boost, which, according to him, would generate somewhere around 1,100-1,200 hp.

However, the current setup of the engine sees the charger producing 8 lbs of boost, which translates into 700 horsepower at the wheels.

Since we mentioned the drag strip, we have to also talk about the kind of 1,320 feet performance this Jeep can deliver. In its current form, the speed behemoth will pull ultra-low 11s passes in the 120 mph area.

As you'll be able to notice in the video below, the owner decided to let GT-R owners know his Jeep can roast them. However, given the current performance of the machine, we expect him to refer to stock Godzillas.

And there's another... unusual aspect here - since the man who owns the car introduces this as his daily driver, it's a bit difficult to explain the fact that the beast showed up at the races on a trailer.

However, since we're dealing with an overly muscular machine that comes with what can be described as a tastefully restrained exterior, we'll stick to appreciating this slab of America for what it is.
