Chrysler’s Street & Racing Technology (SRT) Welcomes Newcomers

Chrysler has officially elevated its in-house performance division – the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team – to a separate company brand that promises to maintain its successful formula to design, engineer and build benchmark American high-performance vehicles for Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge. The launch of SRT as the company’s performance brand comes as three additional vehicles are set to rejoin the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 in the expanding SRT lineup. Making their returns to the vehicle lineup are the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8, 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 and 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

All four new SRT vehicles share a common powerplant – the new 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI V-8 engine that features more horsepower and more torque across a significantly wider rpm range, while intake and exhaust technologies lead to improved fuel efficiency.
