2016 Camaro SS vs Grand Cherokee SRT: Can Jeep Hang Tough?

Put a Camaro SS up against a Ford Mustang GT, or a Dodge Challenger SRT, and those would both be pretty amicable races. Similar horsepower, weight, and performance out of the box. But put the Camaro SS up against a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and that’s when things get weird.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, what with its 455 horsepower and 4.0 second 0-60 time, should hypothetically send the Grand Cherokee back to the drawing board in terms of power to weight. But don’t underestimate the might of the all-wheel drive, 470-horsepower Jeep. 

Sure, the Jeep quickly gets walked away from towards the end of the strip. But from a dig, that SRT worked quickly and kept up with the Camaro a good while before weight and aerodynamics became a factor. Both cars were stock, in case you were wondering. Maybe a Hellcat motor is exactly what that Jeep needs to make things more interesting in the future.
