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.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 0-60 MPH Launch Control Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT comes
with one of the easiest to use Launch Controls in the car business. All you
have to do is press a button and away you go. In this exclusive and fun
TFLcar video we not only wanted to see how fast the new 2014 Jeep Grand
Cherokee SRT will go from 0-60 MPH but how fast it will do it using the
Launch Control. To say that we were surprised by the results is an
understatement. We were shocked. Check out this 0-60 MPH video to find out
how well the new Jeep's SST launch control works!
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel 0-60 MPH First Drive Review: Jeep Week video # 5
( 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.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011 - First drive
Der neue Jeep Grand Cherokee - auch im derben Gelände macht das elegante
SUV eine hervorragende Figur.

► 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.
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 392 Burnout
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.
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 vs. 2011 BMW X5 M vs. 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo
We'll call them Super SUVs -- SuperUVs for brevity: the 555-horsepower BMW X5 M, 500-horsepower Porsche
Cayenne turbo, and 465-horsepower Jeep Grand
Cherokee SRT8. We wanted find out if these top-tier SUVs can comfortably
travel at entertaining and demanding velocities with hefty loads and all
seats filled, so we hooked up flatbed trailers and drove them to Willow
Springs International Raceway.

► 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
