Google fast SUV and you’ll be hard pressed to find any affordable, sub six-figure options. But for those who know what to look for, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is a fully customizable muscle car with Midwestern Mopar roots.
From the south side of Chicago, Greg C. decided to build and customize his very own Jeep SRT. He owns and operates F&F Kustoms Team, a local high performance speed shop and family business.
Why is Greg’s 2016 Grand Cherokee SRT considered a sleeper? This performance SUV comes OEM with 475HP. With some small engine tweaks, he added over 100 horses, totaling 575HP. This engine and exhaust are both very loud but only when he wants them to be.
When Greg rolls up to Cars and Coffee, nobody knows the power he has lurking under the hood. To complete the sleeper look, he removed all the Jeep badges, replacing them with gloss black emblems. Everything becomes one solid color, blending right in with the Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl SRT exterior.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Phone Mount
Why get the SRT package? Compared to the older-brother Trackhawk, the Grand Cherokee SRT is a bit more practical and reasonably priced for a performance SUV. Both have near identical interiors, with Uconnect 4C Navigation and a large 8.4-Inch Display. You can plug and play your smartphone for Apple Car Play and Android Auto functionality.
But where do you mount your expensive cellphone? With all those extra horses, a solid and secure mount to hold your phone is a must-have. Check out the Jeep Grand Cherokee custom phone mount located right by the driver and steering wheel for easy access.
