The 2015 Wrangler and the 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT are two Jeep models that are also available in right-hand-drive variations. Jeep does not sell any right-hand-drive vehicle in the US and insurance companies may charge more for imported vehicles.
Powered by a 3.6-liter six-cylinder petrol engine, the Wrangler produces up to 285 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 260 pounds-feet of torque at 4,800 rpm. The vehicle accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 6.48 seconds and can cover a quarter of a mile in 14.84 seconds at 97.6 mph. The Wrangler features Quadra-Coil off-road suspension, heavy-duty rear shocks, a non-independent leading link suspension for the front wheels and hydraulic power-assist re-circulating ball steering. With a 18.6 gallon fuel tank and a rating of 21 miles per gallon on highways, the vehicle has a maximum range of 390 miles.
In comparison, the Grand Cherokee SRT features a 6.4-liter eight-cylinder engine producing up to 470 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 465 pounds-feet of torque at 4,300 rpm. The vehicle has adaptive suspension, front and rear coil springs, premium rear shocks and a heavy-duty steering cooler. The Grand Cherokee SRT can accelerate from zero to 60 in 5.46 seconds, cover a quarter mile in 13.89 seconds at 98.02 mph and can tow cargo up to 7,200 pounds. The vehicle gets 19 mpg in highway conditions and 13 mpg in cities. Its fuel tank holds up to 24.6 gallons of fuel.
As car manufacturers design right-hand-drive vehicles for the left side of the road, American insurance companies consider them to be riskier than left-hand-drive cars. As such, they demand much higher insurance rates. Likewise, it may be harder to find interior parts to fit the vehicle.
