2010 Startech Jeep Grand Cherokee


Tuning Made in Germany:  The Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with STARTECH Design

Tuning made in Germany for the Jeep Grand Cherokee: STARTECH (www.startech.de) presents an exclusive customization program for the SUV. The extensive product lineup is distinguished by professional engineering and innovative design.

The face of the Grand Cherokee is customized with the stunningly styled STARTECH front spoiler with integrated LED daytime running lights in ‘Black Line’ design. The aerodynamic-enhancement component minimizes lift on the front axle at high speed and gives the 4x4 more passing clout.

Its counterpart in the rear is a special apron that features cutouts for the two characteristic oval-shaped chrome-plated tailpipes of the STARTECH sport exhaust system. The fully stainless-steel exhaust system is available for all Grand Cherokee models and produces a more exciting exhaust note.

The sides of the five-door are upgraded with STARTECH rocker panels with integrated LED lights. These entrance lights are activated with the standard keyless remote or by pulling on a door handle. This innovative STARTECH development makes entering and exiting the vehicle easier in the dark.

22-inch STARTECH Monostar IV 22 wheels are an instant eye catcher. The stunning silver polished five-spoke wheels lend the Grand Cherokee an even classier appearance. The front axle features size 9Jx22 wheels with Pirelli Scorpion tires in size 265/35 R 22. The even wider rear axle combination of size 10Jx22 wheels and size 295/30 R 22 tires contributes greatly to the SUV’s even more agile handling with even greater safety reserves.

The STARTECH suspension kit is specifically calibrated for use with these low-profile tires. It lowers the ride height of the Grand Cherokee by some 30 millimeters (1.2 inches). The lowered center of gravity further improves cornering.

Exclusive interior design is yet another STARTECH specialty that is also available for the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The list of accessories ranges from a speedometer bezel with brushed aluminum design to aluminum pedals and door-lock pins to polished stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated STARTECH logo.

Requests for even more customized interiors are fulfilled by the upholsterers in the company’s interior studio. There are virtually no limits to the selection of colors for leather and Alcantara or to the available upholstery designs.

The STARTECH SD6 tuning kit for the common-rail turbodiesel engine of the 3.0 CRD model bumps power output from standard 218 hp (214 bhp) to 262 hp (259 bhp) / 193 kW. Simultaneously peak torque jumps from 510 Nm to 580 Nm (376 to 427 lb-ft) between 1,600 and 2,800 rpm.
