Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a GO!

i considered getting a wk srt8 for a LONG time but there was something about the interior that just didnt sit well with me. i am still tempted to get one as there are a few at dealerships around me. the wk2 srt8 photo-illustration that has been floating around for quite some time resembles the chevy trailblazer ss to me. not that it is a bad thing because that truck was a beast in its own, you can feel "high-performance suv" just seeping out of it. also curious as to what ext colors will be available because when i went to the NY auto show in 2009 when they unveiled the new wk2, the silver exterior paint on it was absolutely stunning.

How much crow will I have to eat if the '12 SRT8 comes out and it's actually beautiful enough for me to own?

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a GO!

This is good news! I'm SO glad I didn't pull the trigger on a 2010 SRT8... the 2012 should be a MUCH better car. I'll be one of the first to grab one!

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a GO!

I don't know if anyone say this blog post over at Car and Driver but all I can say is WOW! HOLY MF-ing WOW!

Quote:
Under the hood, expect a 6.4-liter naturally aspirated Hemi; output has been reported as being between 505 and 525 hp, but we have a sneaking suspicion it could be even higher. Rumblings suggest that the 555-hp BMW X5 M is squarely in Jeep’s sights, as the brand would be keen to reclaim the title as the world’s quickest production SUV. We tested the X5 M to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, so the 2012 Cherokee SRT8 will need to slice 0.4 second from the outgoing 2010 model’s time to once again be king. Of course, it’s possible that 525 hp would be enough to pull off the feat, but why stop there?
I hope the SRT Engineers have a poster of that BMW X5 M posted in their 'war room' with a big RED bull's-eye painted on it!!!

OMG! I have to go change my shorts now....525HP!! 0-60 in 4sec or better! Sweet Jesus!

Time to start picking up pennies in the street for the 2013 after all the bugs are out of the system
