Two special editions of the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 – Alpine and Vapor – have been confirmed for Australia, adding extra attitude and exclusivity to the high-performance flagship SUV.

Jeep Australia is bringing 200 of both the Alpine and Vapor special editions, which are priced from $81,900 – a $5900 premium over the regular Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

Both models sport a gloss black styling enhancement package that spreads across the bonnet and door badges, grille inserts and surrounds, rear step pad and rear light bar.

The SRT badge on the tailgate is also bespoke, featuring a black flag rather than the red one seen on the standard SRT8, while 20-inch black chrome ‘Spider Monkey’ alloy wheels complete the colour theme.

Inside, both variants feature a dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a 19-speaker 825-watt Harmon Kardon audio system.

Differentiating the two is their paint schemes, with the Alpine finished in Bright White and the Vapor splashed with Brilliant Black duco.

The special edition models are otherwise identical to the standard Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, boasting the same brawny 344kW/624Nm 6.4-litre Hemi V8, five-speed automatic transmission and Quadra Trac active on-demand four-wheel-drive system.

Alpine editions are in showrooms now, while Vapor editions will arrive in late January.

          out of curiosity Golfmother, you do realise VAG own some of the highest polluting manufacturers as well as the fuel efficient ones?

        • GuessMyGuess

          I remember you posting
          “you only live once, live dangerously”

          So why not buy a SRT?

          • Golfmother

            No not for me. My partner likes these types of cars but not for me I just need a little hatch, he would love this for fishing trips etc

  • Cherylrozen

    I’m surprised that someone willing to buy/lease a car of this price wouldn’t also expect LED brake lights and turn signals.

    • GuessMyGuess

      LMFAO!!!! yeah I buy powerfull cars for there LEDs not the handeling & power!

  • Golfmother

    This is not as good as the new VW Rodchoker, carnt wait to get my hands on one

    • Monk

      Seriously dude, I think we’re all a bit tired of the stupid comments.  Yes, Golfmother is blatant about his VAG fanboi thing and doesn’t like ‘dino’ Aussie sedans… nor can he type very well… but it’s time to stop the stupid 12 year old g@y jokes. Move on.

      • Golfmother

        Its just gary floppy expressing his love for the world .

        • Monk

          I dont appreciate the g@y banter honestly it offends me, I am who I am just wish people would accept it

          • Monk

            Wow.  How incredibly amusing and cutting to then adopt my moniker. You must be the life of the party with your school friends.

          • Golfmother

            He has no friends thats why he haunts this site .

          • Monk

            Yes I hate him so much he makes me very very angry

  • Golfmother

  • gtrxu1

    Only 200 made available.Fiat/Chrysler will have no problem selling these 200 ltd Jeeps
    Also a great promotion for the regular Cherokee.Big motor huge torque,18 speaker sound system.Not going to compare to a Euro but at $81,000 well under some of there prestige Suvs.

  • Dudeface

    Did they ever fix the problem with these almost rolling over and blowing tyres in the moose test?

    • Amlohac

      They proved that the people testing it had it overloaded. Re-tested it didnt pitch at all.

      The SRT version has different suspension anyway, they are a god damn weapon. Something that big shouldnt move that quick.

  • $29896495

    White with black accents, always looks great. Not my sort of car though.

  • GuessMyGuess

    They are almost sold out of all the Alpines. They have been out for a month now. very few showrooms have one left.
