Track Time: The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 tears up the race track

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 was not originally designed to be a track car...in fact far from it. But for 2012 the Chrysler engineers at the SRT group took this very capable off-road car and transformed it into a track worthy ride.

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.

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 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.
