2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Over the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5
We’ve just put the all new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 to the test and we can safely say that this car is unlike anything else you’ve ever driven before. So you can give back your dad’s car keys and can tell your sister to keep her Liberty to herself because this is one boy toy you will definitely want to invest in.
The SRT8 is a lowered, two and a half ton beast that has a huge 6.4 liter HEMI, 470 horsepower engine to add to its mean reputation. The wheels are huge 20 inch forged alloys that are at all four corners of this machine as well as a cool adaptive damping system to keep body movement in check. From quite a distance away, one can easily notice its cannon exhaust pipes & intimidating body cladding. Its over-sized brakes make this car one well hung bad boy.
The SRT8 is an all wheel drive and go from 0-60 in around four seconds which is pretty good given the weight of the car, which is two and a half tons as mentioned earlier. The car can also reach a maximum speed of 170 mph. The car has five spoke alloy wheels and twin center mounted exhaust outlets.
The interior of the car is decked up with Nappa leather and suede upholstery. It also has sculpted bucket seats for the driver and front passenger.
