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.
2012 Nissan Quest minivan road trip review & drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Nissan Quest 3.5 LE is Nissan's new
minivan and it competes directly with the Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Town
and Country to name just a few of its rivals. The new Nissan Quest seats 7
& has plenty of room to take you and your family on a cross country trip

Technology Revew: The 2012 6.4-Liter HEMI SRT V8 engine exposed
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 6.4-Liter HEMI SRT V8 engine is the
monster power plant at the heart of the all new Charger, Challenger, 300,
and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 cars. See how the new 6.4L HEMI produced 470
HP in this Insider Interview with Gary Rogers, the new engines Chrysler
First Drive review: Is the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 a budget BMW M5?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 will take you and
your family around the race track at 175 miles an hour. That's because 6.4L
Hemi V8 is good for 465HP and 465 pound feet of torque. That's a boatload
of power. But how does the fastest ever Charger compare to cars like the
BMW M5 and the Cadillac CTS-V sedan. Check out the video and find out as we
take the Charger for a first drive review.

► 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
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
► 2012 Grand Cherokee CRASH TEST
In the frontal impact, the driver's inboard seat rail was found to have
very nearly broken in two, and was mainly held together only by the
threaded steel rod which controls fore-aft adjustment of the seat. The
break occurred just at the point where the lower anchorage for the driver's
seat belt attaches to the rail, and is thought to have been caused by the
high tensile forces in the belt during the test. As a result, there was
additional forward movement of the dummy which contributed to 'bottoming
out' of the airbag i.e. there was insufficient pressure in the airbag to
prevent the driver's head from making contact, through the fabric of the
airbag, with the steering wheel rim. Euro NCAP has been informed that Jeep
are investigating the cause of the seat rail failure and intend to improve
the seat track design, but have no current plans to re-work existing
vehicles. Although dummy readings were good, structures in the dashboard
were thought to present a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of
occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions.
Maximum points were scored in the side barrier test but, in the more severe
side pole impact, protection of the chest was rated as marginal. The Grand
Cherokee has an 'active' head restraint which senses when a rear-end impact
has occurred and moves the restraint forward to minimise the time to
restrain head movement. Jeep showed that the system responded in a broad
range of accident severities, and the whiplash tests were performed with
the system active. Nevertheless, the protection provided against neck
injuries in a rear-end collision was rated as marginal.
