Jeep SRT Hellcat review- Part 2

Jeep Hellcat Release Date

This is part 2 of a 3-part review. Please read Part 1 before continuing.

Interior

The interior is set to be styled the same way as others in the Hellcat family with a few small changes. The steering wheel will become a flat-bottom unit with a slightly thicker rim. The seats will have heating and cooling along with more aggressive sculpting for more comfort. The rest of the features expected to be standard with a touch screen infotainment system, an upgraded stereo and a U-connect system for navigation.

The rear is packed with plenty of cargo which can be improved even further thanks to the folding rear seats. Enhanced safety bags and seat belts are also expected to improve safety.

Performance

Like the rest of the Hellcat series, the TrackHawk will come with a 6.2L, V8 engine with 707 horsepower and 650 pound feet of torque. A ZF 8-speed automatic transmission system ensures that the power is equally distributed all wheels.

This mean that the Hellcat can go from 0-60 in 4 seconds with a top speed of around 200 mph.

If this is too much to handle, you can opt for the Grand Cherokee base version that comes with a 6.4L V8 engine that produces only 475 horsepower and a top speed of 160 mph. This is the current engine on the Grand Cherokee SRT, so you can get all the features of the Hellcat with a little lower power that you can handle.

Jeep SRT Hellcat review- Part 1

Jeep Hellcat Release Date

Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed that a brand new Grand Cherokee Hellcat is in the making. The new version is set to be called Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk and is estimated to start production in July 2017. For those unfamiliar with the term, Jeep uses naming terms like TrailHawk for hardcore off-road models. Here is an in-depth look at the car to get you prepared for the launch:

Exterior

The exterior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat is similar to that of Charger Hellcat.

Reports suggest that the TrackHawk will be built on the same skeletal system as the Mercedes Benz M-Class. However, the engineers are facing problems protecting the drive-line from the powerful engine’s torque bombs.

The exterior is set to have the 3 signature scoops on the hood and will upgrade to a larger front end for better airflow and cooling.

Other visual changes include bigger wheels and wheel flares, bigger brakes, smoked headlamp glass and a light body kit. All of this will make it comfortable to ride on all terrains.

To learn more about the Jeep SRT Hellcat, continue reading Part 2 and 3 of the reviews. To experience the car in real life, drive down to Pine Belt.

What You Need to Know Before Buying the Impreza WRX-STI: What to Look For – II

WRX STI

The Subaru Impreza WRX-STI is the lightest and rawest of the entire bunch and comes with a default torque split of 35/65.

If you have seen the model that was introduced in 2005, you will agree that it resembles its 2004 model year predecessor quite a lot. Though the interior of the 2005 got revised, the all-important and signature style immobilizer still continued. However, as compared to the 2004 Subaru model, the model introduced in 205 was slightly heavier. Apart from the weight difference, both these models more or less looked identical.

Come 2006 and Subaru came up with a grille that resembled somewhat similar to an Alfa-Romeo upside down and the torque split was further moved forward to 41/59 from front to rear.

The Subaru model of 2006 was also equipped with unique front control arms made of aluminum. There are many fans of Subaru who feel that the year 2006 was the best time for both the WRX and the STI.

2007 saw the vehicle featuring taller ratios for its gears as opposed to its earlier model. There were changes made to the ECU, as well as, the wastegate actuator.

In a serious attempt before Subaru could do its changeover to a GR-chassis hatchback, the carmaker launched what it called the STI’s grown-up version that was referred to as Limited.  The name itself indicates that these care are quite rare and only around 800 of them were sold in the United States market. The Limited editions had a leather interior and greater use of sound-deafening materials. They can be regarded as the Touring editions of Subaru STIs.

What You Need To Know Before Buying The Impreza WRX-STI: What to Look For I

WRX STI

 

The word STI itself speaks volumes about the vehicle’s superb rally-bred performance and a turbocharged powerful engine. The STI has an impressive pedigree with over ten years of history in the United States of America.

If you are really contemplating the purchase of an STI, you should actually go ahead without much deliberation. It is indeed a superb car from Subaru that you simply won’t be able to resist to drive and own. Moreover, it is relatively affordable and that is an added attraction for the potential buyers.

The STI was originally available only as a Sedan. The TI with GD-chassis came to the United States with much fanfare as a 2004 model. The combination of features that it constituted of at that time was really lethal with its 2.5L engine with 300 horsepower, along with Brembo brakes, all-weather grip, enormous rear wing made it a huge craze when it was introduced in the market.

It was a car that made the fans of US rally to drive like Burns, Solberg or a McRae and bring this ultimate dream car back home so that they can get it parked in their driveway.

The STI model of 2004 was appealing to all including their proud owners. The original models did not have immobilizers fitted in them. The model of 2004’s bolt pattern was slightly different from its later successes that is shared with the WRX. The model that was introduced in 2005 looked quite similar to the 2004 model but is equipped with the bold pattern 5×114.3 that would continue for the next ten years with an updated interior and the signature immobilizer. The 2005 model is a little bulkier than its predecessor but otherwise, both of them are identical. If you want to test drive a Subaru Impreza, visit Pine Belt.

What You Need To Know Before Buying the Impreza WRX-STI: Modifications

WRX STI

When you find that an STI is relatively unmodified and is in a clean state, you should purchase it without much ado. Often, it has been noticed that overenthusiastic and aftermarket car owners have ensured that their cars have been considerably tuned. You need to understand that when you modify a car even from a factory, it devalues it.

And yet, if you are availing the services of respectable tuners such as Perrin and cob to upgrade certain parts of your Subaru Impreza, it is possibly fine apart from an array of aftermarket wheels.

When the car looks factory and yet you have your apprehensions, you can follow certain simple clues. For example, if you find that the heatshield that covered the factory turbocharger has somehow gone missing as it is cumbersome to put it back, the car may have gone through an aftermarket modification process.

It is said that even not quite some time back, all owners of a Subaru car waved at each other similar to the motorcyclists. In fact, they do that even now in a few parts of the country.

Subaru has forum portals such as NASIOC with a great and thorough depth of knowledge but they need to be read carefully. You can also join some of the local forums that are an excellent way of getting out and enjoying your Subaru STI with other Subaru owners. So join online forums, do some research by discussing with other Subaru owners and then own your STI. If you want to test drive a Subaru Impreza, you must visit Pine Belt.
