2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

SRT8 4dr SUV (6.4L V8 4x4 8-speed Automatic)
The Jeep Grand Cherokee gained an immense amount of refinement, sophistication and luxury with last year's full redesign. For 2012, it gets a bonkers high-performance SRT8 version that produces 465 horsepower. It may not be the most politically correct vehicle on the road, but the JGC is no doubt one impressive SUV.

Grand Cherokee SRT8
* 6.4L V8 engine
* Automatic transmission
* 4-wheel drive
* Navigation System
* Bluetooth
* iPod input

* Side/Curtain Airbags

The high-performance SRT8 took last year off while the regular Grand Cherokee was completely (and successfully) overhauled. Along with those inherent improvements, the 2012 SRT8 version brings with it a 465-hp 6.4-liter Hemi V8 that will supposedly bring this Jeep from zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. Other upgrades include an SRT-tuned adaptive suspension, Brembo brakes, forged 20-inch wheels, steering wheel paddle shifters and special bodywork. Check back later this year for additional details as well as a full review of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
