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 Jeep Cherokee SRT8 vs Toyota Yaris 0-60-0 MPH Performance Mashup Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Jeep Cherokee SRT8 and the 2012 Toyota
Yaris have very little in common except for perhaps that they both have
four wheels and an engine. One is designed to be the ultimate HEMI powered
all-wheel-drive jeep and cost about 65K with every possible luxury feature
while the other one is a small efficient car that good good on gas mileage.
So naturally we decided to put them to the test against each other in
another TFLcar 0-60-0 MPH Performance Mashup Test. If you are curious about
how fast each car can get from 0-60-0 MPH as well as our current car leader
board...just check out this mashup video.

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
