On Wednesday March 8. 2017 the Jamaican Tuner attended the unveiling of the all-new 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The shindig was held at KIG’s Showroom at 21-25 old hope road. Upon entering the venue you were greeted by a host of Jeep models that KIG has in stock. Models such as the Jeep Renegade with a 1.6L turbocharged 110hp -featured in the BATMAN v SUPERMAN Dawn of Justice Movie, the more rugged Jeep Rubicon with a 3.6 L 285hp V6 motor, and last but not least; the Jeep Summit which sports a 3.6L V6 295hp motor.
Wrapped in black satin was the car of the moment. Everyone was in anticipation of what this monster would look like. After filling our stomachs with excellent tasting food, not to mention the sickest EDM beats by the dj; it was time. Mrs. Judith Denton, Sales and Marketing Manager at KIG, got the ball rolling by welcoming everyone in attendance and drawing attention to the other models of cars that were on display. She then gave us hints as to what was covered up right beside her. It was the 2017 model of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT (Street & Racing Technology)
The new model comes with a host of goodies. Powered by a 6.4L Hemi V8 producing 475HP and 470 lb-ft of Torque. The SRT does a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, top speed is an admirable 160 mph. It has an eight (8) speed semi-automatic transmission and is capable of launch control. Stopping power is also impressive sporting 6 piston Brembo brake calipers at the front and 4 piston brembo calipers at the rear. The new Jeep SRT sits pretty on Forged Aluminum 20×10 stock rims painted in black. Matched with the red Brembo calipers the combination is just gorgeous. the rims are wrapped in Pirelli P295/45WR20 rubber
Mr. Jeremy Hart, Regional Manager of Interamericana Trading Corporation was also on hand during the launch. He went on to express how exciting it is to have the Jeep brand in Jamaica.
After all the talking two dancers came out and put on a show they did just before pulling the covers off this Gorgeous Black Beauty we managed to get some shots of the SUV and we hope you do enjoy. If you love it and want it feel free to give KIG a call and schedule a test drive today.
