2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Video

Those looking for the most versatile performance car money can buy should look no further than … Jeep? It may seem odd, but the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 can go from zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, and it can tow 5,000 pounds and carry the kids and their friends to and from school. That's a lot to ask from an SUV, but the Grand Cherokee SRT8 delivers, according to Cars.com editor Joe Bruzek.

Definitely an awesome SUV, however I reckon the car's maximum towing capacity is a bit low for such a big SUV.


No doubt it is firm in sport mode, how is it for daily driving? How forgiving is it on concrete highway expansion joints, for example? BTW, do any SRT vehicles offer cylinder deactivation?
Other than expected dismal mileage, I love just about everything about this multi use high performance suv. [maybe not those hood heat extractors]


I believe all the 2012 SRTs with the new 6.4L have cylinder deactivation. The old 6.1L did not have it. It will be interesting to see if the new Viper does or not.

5,000 pounds towing capacity is good but i was expecting so much more from the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
