August 28, 2012

The analog gauge package on the Jeep SRT8 is very basic. Jeep gives you a tach, a speedo, water temp. (with no numbers), and of course a fuel level indicator.

Some could say it's too basic. After all, if you just bought a 470 hp Hemi-powered muscle ute you might just want some more information, like oil temp and oil pressure. Well, Jeep has supplied such instrumentation, you just need to know where to look. Push the right button and they're displayed on the Jeep's driver information screen, which is located front and center on the Cherokee's instrument cluster.

Jeep even takes it a step further with a transmission temperature gauge and a engine hours readout. Very cool.
