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.

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 Review and Drive Update
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee has always been one of our favorite on-road and off-road rides.

After putting hundreds of miles on the Jeep we came away impressed with the cars ability to carry five in comfort and security.

► 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). ► If you love cars, you should subscribe now to YouCar's channel: http://urlz.fr/lEd Go ahead, it's free!

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 HUGE BURNOUT
Fresh back from the SRT launch at Willow Springs Raceway there are several on track videos with both driver and car perspectives to cut and share with enthusiasts and Mopar fans alike. But for now I wanted to share this video of a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 with some very special software loaded into the ECU...notice the lack of power being channeled to the front wheels.

2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 - Drive Time Review
Drive Time Review of the all-new 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 by auto critic Steve Hammes





► Chrysler 300 SRT8 (2012) on the track
The Street and Racing Technology (SRT) performance engineering team builds upon the all-new 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan already executed for a world-class luxury experience, to deliver Chrysler's most powerful and best handling model ever. Performance numbers include 0-60 mph acceleration in the high 4-second range; quarter mile in high 12-second range; 0-100-0 mph in less than 16 seconds, top speed of 175 mph and stopping power from 60-0 mph in 120 feet. The return of the 300 SRT8 to the Chrysler lineup in 2012 evokes a strong comparison to the original high-performance production car of its time -- the 1955 Chrysler 300. Known for simple, strong lines, excellent engineering, high levels of luxury and outstanding performance with the first modern American V-8 engine to produce 300 horsepower, the first Chrysler 300 (C-300) was styled by Virgil Exner, who radically redesigned the entire Chrysler line and created what they called "The Forward Look" in 1955. Without much chrome on the sides, his designs were simple, but strong. Exner is credited with creating the illusion of fast, forward movement. Under the hood of the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8, the new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 makes its debut in the Chrysler brand product lineup delivering 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470 (637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque, up 45 horsepower and 50 lb.-ft. over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces. The improved torque output -- including an additional 80 lb.-ft. at 2,900 rpm -- allows for inspired standing starts and improved straight-line performance while new, performance-tuned motor mounts improve idle stability and ride control at any speed. An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing provides maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power.
