Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor, as the name suggests is swathed in a lustrous red livery. The grille, secondary airdam and the badges are finished in glossy black while the 20-inch Goliath alloy wheels are treated with a black chrome finish.
The interior is finished in a full black theme. The exclusive feature of the special edition is the Active Noise Cancellation technology which is claimed to carry nothing but the engine note into the cabin.
Speaking of the engine note, the 6.4-litre HEMI V8 petrol motor which pumps out 468 PS and 624 Nm of torque continues untouched. 0-100 kph comes in just 5 seconds and the top speed stands at 257 km/h.

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X is another cosmetic exercise by the American SUV specialist. The special edition comes painted in Firecracker Red exterior color.
The off-roader gets a body colored modular hard top, glossy black inserts on the body colored grille, raised dual air intake vents on the bonnet and 18-inch glossy black alloy wheels.
The 284 PS 3.6-litre petrol and the 2.8-litre turbo diesel engines are on offer, both paired to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Of course, 4WD is standard.
