The most powerful, technologically advanced, high-performance Jeep®
vehicle ever -- the all-new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8® -- arrives this
summer with a combination of Jeep's legendary capability and utility,
merged with the renowned advanced performance engineering from Chrysler
Group LLC's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team.
Delivering outstanding driving performance in all conditions, and
complemented by key SRT attributes -- including functional,
performance-oriented styling, world-class ride and handling, benchmark
braking and race-inspired interior appointments -- the 2012 Jeep Grand
Cherokee SRT8 broadens the Jeep vehicle lineup and builds upon the
successful launch of the award-winning 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.Designed
and built using the proven SRT formula that raises the performance to
astonishing levels, the new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 runs from 0-60
mph in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in the mid-16 second range, can cover the
quarter mile in the mid-13 second range, has a top speed of 155 mph, and
brakes from 60-0 mph in 116 feet.Powering the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

of torque -- an improvement of 45 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft.
torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
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. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available
between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and
improved straight-line performance.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve Exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to
engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency --
an estimated 13-percent increase on the highway -- and an extended range of
approximately 450 miles on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard AutoStick
on the floor. Both are mated to a proven automatic transmission, allowing a
choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. Both methods
give the driver the ability to shift while the transmission controller
calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine. Fully
adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more
responsive while minimizing harshness.

Yes, it can be done by shutting down the front end. I don't believe that
just anyone can do it though. After some hot laps on the track, these tires
were good for nothing more than what you are looking at. This is from a
launch of 2012 SRT8 lineup at Willow Springs.
