MOST POWERFUL JEEP® VEHICLE EVER
LEGENDARY JEEP® BRAND CAPABILITY
The most powerful Jeep® vehicle ever, runs from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 155mph and brakes from 60-0 mph in 116 feet, for an outstanding driving performance in all conditions. An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing delivers maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and improved rpm band. 90-percent of peak torque is available between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, for improved straight-line performance.
HEAD-TURNING SRT® PERFORMANCE
The Grand Cherokee SRT8® takes capability to a new level by giving driving enthusiasts extreme performance on street and track. The all-new 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine with Fuel Saver Technology delivers an estimated 470 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque.
BEST HANDLING JEEP® VEHICLE EVER
A SMOOTHER, MORE CONTROLLED RIDE
Electronic Limited Slip Differential gives drivers more control on the road by improving handling and eliminating rear wheel slip. Revised gearing gives a more direct feel and on-center response, while new, split five-spoke, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, ride on P295/45ZR20 Pirelli® P Zero® run-flat tires (standard all-season or available three-season).
OUTSTANDING RIDE, HANDLING AND CAPABILITY
Engineers have improved handling even further. The SRT8® features a new SRT-tuned, adaptive damping suspension managed by the new Jeep® Selec-Track® system that interacts with multiple systems, including stability control, adaptive damping, transmission shift strategy, Electronic Limited Slip Differential performance, throttle control and cylinder deactivation.
The SRT8® comes from a line already known for world-class, outstanding braking. Stopping power for the 2012 Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8® comes courtesy of new SRT® high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel antilock brake system. Stopping distance performance of 116 feet from 60-0 mph is made possible by the new, red-painted, Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers, with vented rotors at all four corners.
LUXURIOUS, RACE-INSPIRED INTERIOR
HEAD-TURNING RACING STYLE
Drive in style, in the new SRT-styled Nappa leather and suede seats, with sculpted bolsters and adjustable headrests, providing all the comfort needed for daily drivers, and “grip” to keep the driver and passengers in place during the more spirited excursions. Carbon fiber accents are integrated into the instrument panel and door trim panels, and new bright, racing style brake and pedal pads add to the high-performance look inside the cabin. The embroidered SRT logos and contrast stitching accent the two front seats.
STYLE WITH FUNCTION
The refined, luxurious interior takes on a performance feel in SRT8 form with an all-new, leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel with a unique rim section and flattened bottom surface – evoking a race-inspired cockpit showcasing the SRT logo. Standard paddle-shift controls flank both sides of the new contoured palm rests with Vehicle Electronic Information Center controls from the horizontal spokes on the steering wheel.
