Not that the newest jeep is truly a competitor to the M5, I found this interesting...

Grand Cherokee SRT8 Most Powerful Jeep Ever
Powered by a 415-horsepower 6.1-liter HEMI V8, the Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the quickest Jeep ever produced, capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in under 5 seconds.

The first Jeep to receive performance upgrades from Chrysler's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team, the Grand Cherokee SRT8 includes a specially developed all-wheel-drive system.

In addition to the HEMI, the Grand Cherokee SRT8 gets optimized for balanced performance with SRT-tuned shocks, unique sway bars, special spring rates, and revised suspension bushings. The ride height of the Grand Cherokee SRT8 is one inch lower than the Grand Cherokee, which adds to the aggressive stance and actually reduces aerodynamic drag.

"Jeep vehicles lead the way in performance and versatility," said Jeff Bell, vice president of Jeep in the Chrysler Group. "The all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 adds a new dimension to performance and versatility—and value. With its SRT-engineered 6.1-liter HEMI® engine and specially developed full-time four-wheel-drive system, the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 provides stunning performance in an amazing variety of driving conditions." "The all-new 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 marries Jeep capability with SRT performance to create a vehicle that will leave in its dust competitors that cost twice the price," Bell added.
