SRT Gets “Exported to Japan”: 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon

Chrysler made headlines with its “Imported from Detroit” tagline, and to our surprise, the cars are also exported… to Japan.

That’s not really a huge surprise, but Chrysler certainly doesn’t have much of a presence in the Japanese marketplace thanks to a lack of tiny city cars.

Looking to appeal to the enthusiast demographic, the automaker’s new SRT performance brand set up shop at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, arriving to the party with its Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and a Chrysler 300 SRT8.

Neither vehicle, even in non-SRT form, is very popular in Japan – it’d be difficult to spot one driving on the streets everyday. But if there’s one thing Japanese automotive enthusiasts love, it’s horsepower. Both models pack plenty of it with the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 featuring a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with 470 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque.

The 300 SRT8 has the same powerplant lurking underneath the hood and the vehicle as a whole has incredible power and handling characteristics. It’s rather interesting to see both models showing up in Tokyo as SRT continues to expand its presence internationally.

Platinum VIP x LIberty Walk Japan // Slammed Chrysler 300. | Stance:Nation - Form > Function

This is just another great example of the car's appeal to such a wide range. The stance on this car is just incredible. There's a youtube link somewhere on this site and it's a car meet of nothing but 3's out in Japan.

Not a fan of ALL of the styling tastes but this article gives me more incentive to Bag it. There's been some really good track-based application developments for our cars with air ride suspensions. Having the performanced handling and stiffness in the corners and being able to drop it on the pavement when i park it just seems like having the best of both worlds.
There's even an app for smartphones to control the air ride

Some enterprising engineer at Chrysler hit paydirt when they brought out this car for sure!
