Watch SRT Boss Ralph Gilles Whip A Grand Cherokee Around The Circuit Of The Americas

We're big fans of SRT chief Ralph Gilles for his no-nonsense style and purveyance of insanely powerful American cars. And like any responsible executive, he needs to sample his own wares from time to time — which is exactly what he does when he pilots this Jeep around Austin's Circuit of the Americas. 


Not just any Jeep, either! It's a 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT (formerly SRT8), the one with a 470-horsepower 6.4-liter Hemi V8. That's a great sounding motor if you ask me, and the Grand Cherokee seems to do pretty well on Austin's track.

"I love this thing," Ralph says around the 3:40 mark. What's not to love?
