RGMotorsport is offering an all-new performance upgrade for the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.
With Whipple’s third-generation blower bolted in place, RGMotorsport’s upgrade produces a Trackhawk-whipping 546kW and 928Nm – enough to propel the burly SUV to 100 km/h in an estimated 3,6 seconds and to a top speed of 290 km/h.
The Whipple supercharger is nestled in the V of the eight cylinders, which means power is delivered in a more refined and effortless manner.
There’s more outright grunt too; changing to the latest forced induction technology upped power from the 520 kW previously available, with torque climbing by almost 60 units.
Also included is the RGM-Techniflow dual 76mm stainless steel exhaust system along with ceramic-coated headers to blast out the hot gases inside the pipes with minimal delay. An ECU software download comes straight from the Whipple factory and is fine-tuned by RGM’s team to suit our climate, fuel, and conditions.
Each car is optimized on the company’s four-wheel-drive dynamometer and, finally, road-tested.
RGM’s full-house upgrade costs R268 700 including all management hardware and software, and a 76mm stainless steel Techniflow exhaust system with ceramic-coated tubular headers. All RGMotorsport upgrades include a six month/20 000 warranty, with extended warranties also available.
