2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Design Analysis with designer Ralph Gilles
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a strange Jeep indeed. It is more at home on the race track than on the Rubicon Trail. Think of it more as a all wheel drive tarmac tearing machine instead of an off-road worthy SUV. We recently had the chance to interview the Chrysler's SRT Brand CEO and designer Ralph Gilles about the design of the new Jeep SRT8.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel will get 30 MPG on the highway...at least that's the number Chrysler says the 2WD version of the Jeep can get on the highway. With a new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel is the most fuel efficient model in the Jeep Grand Cherokee line-up. But perhaps more importantly it is also one of the most torquey. While the Diesel engine only produces 240 HP, it manages a massive 420 lb-ft of torque. In this exclusive TFLcar first drive video review we test how fast the new 2014 Diesel Grand Cherokee will go from 0-60 MPH.

► 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
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 160 mph, and brakes from 60-0 mph in 116 feet.
Powering the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is Chrysler Group's all-new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 465 (630 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque -- an improvement of 50 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 -- a 13-percent increase on the highway -- and an extended range of 450 miles on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto Stick 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.
Chrysler Group's SRT vehicles are well known for their world-class braking. Stopping power for the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 comes courtesy of new SRT high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS).
Stopping distance performance of 116 feet from 60-0 mph is made possible by new red-painted, Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers, and vented rotors at all four corners measuring 15-inches (front) and 13.8-inches (rear).
