Re: Here it is!!! 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 pics!

Thanks guys for finding the pics so soon and posting them here!!
I knew it wouldn't be much faster than WK1.
All the vents seem very cheap and fake to me. And the chrome needs to go.
Although, I do like the rims a lot, but not on this beast. They are too highly stylized and busy, which can be good, but not on this.
Aftermarket companies will be scrambling this month to make up a new center exhaust system for sure.

From a business perspective, it really puzzles me. It's totally reaching for a more upmarket, more mass consumer approach with the style, refreshed interior, new gadgets towing capability, and higher ride height.
But it's whole premise originally was to be a ridiculous thing that was pointless, and offered prestige to people who didn't want anything anywhere near the status quo. They never sold many, didn't make too much to warrant an upmarket restyle, and now it looks like they want to sell 100,000 of them with this update.
The new one is more...upscale in a posh, upscale mall parking lot kind of way.
It should have been upscale in a drag racer, bad ass, girlfriend-stealer kind of way like the old one.

Sorry for getting all philosophical.
Whatever the new look, I will be there next week at the auto show to let the look sink in more.

If they would have borrowed the power dome hood, triple vents below the grill, and blended the front lower air dam up into the bumper it would look 10x better.

Re: Here it is!!! 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 pics!

---2011 Brilliant Black Overland for sale--- HAHA. I knew I should have waited. Thought this might not see the light of day when I bought last year. I was wrong.

I love it. Killer job Chrysler. Anticipation has been killing me to see the look of this. I was worried there would be more chrome. Wheels do look like they will be a pain in the ass to clean though.(easy fix)

Maybe I should wait for the 8 speed tranny to be dropped in and the 8 in nav. from the 300/Charger so I won't take as much of a hit selling mine, or I guess you only live once, right?

Can't wait to have one in the garage.

ROCK ON!

The new 300 SRT8 is damn classy! The SRT badge is even black and white! The new WK2 is going to have to grow on me. Several things will need to be replaced

Re: Here it is!!! 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 pics!

I think the new WK2 is so fkn sexy. Just stop now with all the minor gripes, Im sick of seeing most of you cry about the wheels and the LED's and the blah blah blah. Im fkn buying one the minute they are available. Im seriously in love and my expectations have been met without even seeing one in person. Id flat out buy one without having to see it in person... eff it!

PS Im really glad they dont have the chrome accents all over this beast. I like how they did the JGC in chrome along the side....Debadging this thing will make it look even more sexy.
