The Chrysler HEMI is known around the world as one of the best high-end engine systems available. The engineers at Chrysler have spent years perfecting the engine and offering more performance while increasing economy. Today, drivers in Australia have a couple choices when it comes to new autos featuring the legendary HEMI. Let's take a look at two of those options, the Chrysler 300 SRT8 and the Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8.
The Chrysler 300 SRT8 Brings The Hemi To The Family Sedan
The Chrysler 300 SRT8 is the perfect way to get behind the HEMI engine while still buying a great family sedan. The 300 SRT8 has something for everyone: HEMI performance, best in class luxury, and the economy and capacity of a family sedan.
For performance, the 300 SRT8 puts out more power and torque than some sports cars. The HEMI engine beats out similar year models of the well known Camaro and Mustang. Unlike a classic muscle car, however, the 300 is a luxurious ride. The Italian engineers and designers from Fiat have given the 300 their impeccable flair for leatherwork, modern design, and bold lines. Finally, the 300 SRT8 is a great family vehicle and daily driver with its Fuel Saver technology.
The Chrysler Hemi Family - Jeep Grand Cherokee
With plenty of power and performance to spare, you can also find the HEMI in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Here, the legendary engine is put to great use in a full size SUV. In fact, the HEMI equipped Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the most powerful Jeep ever.
With a five-mode dynamic drive control; the Jeep also has the performance characteristics to match each mode. Auto mode is great for daily driving, while Sport enhances control for a fun-to-drive ride, Tow will help you haul pretty much anything you can think of, up to 2268 kg, and Track is the high performance option for the ultimate driving experience, while Snow will handle the worst weather mother nature can throw at you.
