I was prepared to buy one but I'll sit it out and see how this plays out over the next one or two model years. I'm thinking the pricing will be much higher than anticipated. Hopefully I'm wrong.
Motor Trend thinks the pricing is going to be very close to the WK1. The WK2 is full trim is cheaper than the fully loaded WK. So I don't see whey they won't be or can't be keeping that cost structure in line with the SRT8.
However, the dealers control some of this, as if it's a hot seller, prices will fluctuate like they did in 2006.

I dont think there will EVER be an 8 speed in the 6.4L Jeep SRT8. It will be in the V6 models only IMO

I completely agree. It's just the way it's going to be based on the engineering.

I like this much better. But make the LED's come up on the inner wall of that cut out.

The ZF is in some pretty heavy and Fast cars....
Audi
BentleyBMWLand RoverRolls RoyceSo why (Based on Engineering) would they not put the 8 speed in the SRT8 if it helps with efficiency both with less power loss and more fuel efficiency?

Not to mention the transmission will be built in America by Chrysler.
I would think if it's in the parts bin and it's better, then it will be in the Jeep SRT8. IMO

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

all the big manufacturers are now switching to turbos. the new M Series of BMW and AMG Series of Mercedes are stepping back from v10s and going v8 turbos. you never know, Chrysler and other manufacturers may eventually go back to (fuel efficient) v6 turbos

which would be pretty sick, IMO

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

Went to the autoshow last night and got to inside this beautiful machine, I was blown away with the quality. The one thing that disappointed me was that it is missing the new 10" navigation screen.

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

Does one really need a 10" screen? I don't think I'll hardly use Nav as I know where I am 99% of the time. I'd use it only to control audio and such and even those are set it and forget it for the most part.

As for the 8 speed.... I think the SRT8 will probably perform better with less and taller gears. I'd be worried if adding 3 more gears would add even more weight and if not then weaken the current tranny.

The new Nav runs on the Powernet electrical architecture, which the WK2's do not have and may not until even 2014

It is 8.4", not 10"

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

Just came from the autoshow, overall a wonderful piece of work. I sat inside the drivers seat for about 7 seven minutes. I didn't want to get out, the interior is BEAUTIFUL, and so comfy. I'm a small guy so these seats hugged me, very comfy. I even came back after seeing all the exhibits to check it out. One idiot was like, O YA THIS IS THE SS edition.. LOL.. I just gave him the Face

I was suprised that they let anyone sit in it. usually they only let you sit in cars already in production.

I loved it. Seats felt great, paddle shifters. I thought the wheels looked great.
