Differences and Similarities: Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Durango SRT

jeep 2018

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Durango SRT are two powerful luxury SUVs with great features and enough engine power to satisfy anyone. So which one is for you? Let’s compare these two vehicles to see if one meets your needs better than the other. If you want to get a closer look and take them both for a test drive, both models are available at Miami Lakes Automall.

With a starting MSRP of $62,995 (plus destination fee), the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT provides a 475-hp 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, with all wheel drive (AWD) through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Complete with gaping front air intake, 20-inch wheels and 4-inch tailpipes, the Durango SRT has an aggressive muscle-car inspired look that matches its roaring strong HEMI engine.

Though the Dodge Durango SRT is powerful, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has an even stronger engine. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a starting MSRP of $85,900 (plus destination fee) and it is equipped with a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine that provides up to 707-horsepower. Thanks to the powerful engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has an incredible 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 3.5 seconds and it completes a quarter-mile in a mere 11.6 seconds. Not bad for a midsize SUV.

One reason for consumers to pick one model over the other is seating capacity. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT can seat the driver and six passengers and the Jeep Grand Cherokee is only suitable for five passengers plus driver.

Leather interior comes standard for both vehicles, as most luxury vehicles will include, but the finish is what makes both brands quite nice. The SRT Interior Appearance package provides rich painted accents, micro suede headlines, carbon-fiber trim and an impressively stitched dashboard cover; a first for any Durango model.

Buyers looking for a performance SUV that also has great towing capabilities may be more inclined to go with the Durango SRT. While the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has an excellent maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds, the Dodge Durango SRT has an increased max towing capacity of 8,700 pounds for towing capabilities.

 There’s no doubt the reason you’d want either of these upscale SUVs is to provide a luxurious, powerful driving experience. The place you can go to test one for yourself is Miami Lakes Automall, where you can comfortably test drive a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Miami Lakes Auto 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL

Differences Between 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL and Wrangler JK

Miami Lakes Auto 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL

Earlier this month, the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show took place, and that’s when the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL officially debuted. Sure, there have been spy photos and leaked information, but all of that was just a piece of the pie compared to everything we learned at the show. Can’t wait to learn all about it? We have a page dedicated to the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL. Otherwise, here’s some of the highlights as well as the differences one can expect between the next-generation all-new 2018 Wrangler JL and the 2018 Wrangler JK.

Let’s Talk Powertrains

The Wrangler JK is only available with one engine (3.6L Pentastar V6 engine), whether it is the Wrangler or Wrangler Unlimited. That same engine returns to the Wrangler JL model, but it’s been tweaked a little bit. The new tweaked engine is able to generate up to 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, and it can be paired to the standard six-speed manual transmission or the new available eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine also comes standard with electric start-stop (ESS), a technology to conserve fuel while the engine idles. With this tech, consumers can expect their Jeep Wrangler JL to have an average fuel economy of 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway if paired to the manual transmission; otherwise it’s 18 mpg in the city with the automatic transmission.

The Jeep Renegade is a compact SUV that was first released in 2015. Though the Renegade still has Jeep’s signature seven-slot front grille, it has a style and design that is fairly different from other Jeeps. Unlike the Wrangler or Grand Cherokee, the Renegade doesn’t look quite as rugged, but actually one Renegade trim, the Renegade Trailhawk is Trail Rated and it is one of Jeep’s best equipped models for off-roading.

Off-road features and safety

The Renegade Trailhawk is the only Renegade trim that comes standard with Jeep’s prime off-road features like a 4×4 drivetrain and a 2.4-liter Tigershark engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.The Renegade Trailhawk is equipped with Active Drive Low, the Trailhawk’s signature red tow hooks, and extra skid plates and a raised ground clearance to protect the underbody of the vehicle.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT: History of the Fastest Jeep Ever Made

2015-Jeep-Grand-Cherokee-SRT-Miami Jeep Dealers

In 2005, Jeep decided to make a bold move, introducing a Grand Cherokee that’s primary focus wasn’t off-road use.

The first Grand Cherokee SRT was about the kind of speed and responsiveness that drivers look for in high performance vehicles.

And over time, the vision expanded to include a level of luxury that you won’t find in many other SUVs on the market.

The unique thing about the Grand Cherokee SRT is that it can handle off-road challenges, haul heavy loads, and induce a hefty dose of adrenaline while at the same time making you feel like pampered royalty.

This one-of-a-kind SUV hits a niche that no other set of wheels fits into. Whether you’re looking for a vehicle that knows how to make a commotion or one that gives you the finer things in life, the SRT is it.

Take a look at how it started out at Miami Jeep dealers and how it turned into the asphalt-eating SUV it is today.
