Chrysler 300C and Jeep grand Cherokee SRT debut
Chrysler’s stunning new 300C executive saloon and the powerful Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT will make their UK show debuts next week at the Canary Wharf Motorexpo, Britain’s largest auto show.
A three car line-up of the 3.0-litre V6 CRD 300C saloons is the centrepiece of a prominent Chrysler display, which also includes a full hospitality unit and a team of product specialists.
Launched in the UK next week (14 June), the all-new 236bhp Chrysler 300C is larger, more lavish, safer and better built than ever. Available in two versions, Limited and Executive, the new car uses new MultiJet 2 diesel technology to provide effortless power and fuel-saving efficiency. The range starts at £35,995 OTR.
Showgoers visiting the Motorexpo (Canary Wharf, London, 11-17 June) will also have the chance to see the muscular new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT – the fastest and most powerful Jeep ever built. The SRT, introduced here last month, is powered by an all-new 6.4-litre HEMI V8 engine with Fuel Saver technology that turns off four of the eight cylinders when full power is not required to increase fuel economy and reduce overall emissions.
The 461bhp SRT achieves 0-62mph acceleration in five seconds, a top speed of 160mph and braking from 62-0mph in 116 feet. It costs £58,995 OTR.
Chrysler’s popular Ypsilon city car and the go-anywhere Jeep Wrangler will also be on display at Motorexpo. Some test drives will be available on selected cars.
“Motorexpo is a hugely popular show that draws attendances of up to half-a-million people each year,” says Nigel Land, brand director, Jeep Chrysler UK. “It’s an ideal venue for us to showcase our two new premium Chrysler and Jeep vehicles. That’s why we decided to give them both their UK premieres here.”
