Post Official 0-60mph numbers?

What are the official 0-60 mph numbers for the 2011 Grand Cherokee? I am particularly interested in the comparison of Overland 4x4 with V6 vs. V8.

Most numbers I found in the media reports were estimated. Car & Driver tested the V8 to be 7.5s. I am yet to find the number for the v6. Anybody knows?

Re: Official 0-60mph numbers?

That was a Laredo. It did not say whether it was a 4x2 or 4x4. Anyways, I would assume that the Overland 4x4 v6 will be no faster than this as it has a few extra pounds from the added features.
Thanks.

Re: Official 0-60mph numbers?

The numbers I've seen are 7.5 seconds for the Hemi, 8.5 for the V-6 (C&D tested a V-6 Laredo in the October issue and it was right at eight and a half).

Base V6 QT1 4x4 dealer loaner: I got one 8.10sec 0-60 and one 8.18sec 0-60 based on the speedometer and a second person running the stopwatch. The engine had some run-time on it (over 1200 miles on it) and I used just a bit of trans loading (slight throttle tip-in while braking).

I also tried one run by just mashing the pedal off-idle at the start and that "normal" method put the 0-60 at 8.60sec. Unscientific test but close enough for marbles. It is noticeably faster than my '06 5.4L XLT Expedition. The Hemi at around 7.5sec (reported) isn't exactly "quick" to my butt either but makes more noise under heavy acceleration and has a bit more initial snap on throttle inputs.

Re: Official 0-60mph numbers?

It makes sense with the V6 rated at 9.1 if the Hemi is getting times of 7.5 from MT. I believe other sources though rate the Hemi at 7sec which is probably more on par with the actual number.

I find it hard to believe the Hemi has lost a full half second with just a couple hundred more pounds of weight plus the added power.

Lol! All the more reason to never buy a demo vehicle! That's also why I test drive a similar vehicle to the exact one I am purchasing and put that one through it's paces rather than the one I am taking home!

Thanks.
I think it was 4x4 - there is a video on YouTube related to this test where they mention it.

And a smaller rear end .. I think the gears are 3.47 instead of 3.73

Re: Official 0-60mph numbers?

I would consider getting the V8 if the v6 is 9.1. But if the v6 can get 8.2-8.5, that will not justify too much to get the v8. I don't tow things much. The only factor to me is the acceleration. The higher gas mileage of the v6 is also a plus.

Re: Official 0-60mph numbers?

A few tweaks should drop those Hemi times a bit.

Also V6 needs 87, Hemi needs 89.

Go test-drive both if you haven't already. I did and just didn't see much of a difference on the highway other then I needed to step on it a bit more with V6 when passing. I also noticed a bit of lag on Hemi that I didn't notice in V6. Several Hemi owners from prev model years commented that this is the way it is due to ECT.

I am getting a V6.
