Thumbs up Motortrend compares the 2006 Jeep SRT to the 2012 Jeep SRT

http://wot.motortrend.com/by-the-num...-9-106123.html





2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 tested on 7/21/11

6.4L V-8 and 5A with 470 hp/465 lb-ft
0-60 mph: 4.6 seconds
Quarter mile: 13.3 seconds @ 103.2 mph
Figure Eight time: 25.8 seconds @ 0.71 g
60-0 mph: 106 feet
Pounds per horsepower: 11.1

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 tested on 11/10/05

6.1L V-8 and 5A with 420 hp/420 lb-ft
0-60 mph: 4.8 seconds
Quarter mile: 13.5 seconds @ 101.6 mph
Figure Eight time: 26.1 seconds @ 0.69 g
60-0 mph: 124 feet






Six years after the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 arrives, the 2012 model sprints from 0-60 mph only two tenths quicker. If the 4.6-second time for a 5223-pound SUV doesn’t impress you, maybe the fact that the Jeep also gets 4 mpg more on the highway will.

Or, perhaps the stunningly short 60 mph stopping distance of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will catch your attention. At 106 feet, the Jeep’s performance is 16 feet better than the 2006 Grand Cherokee SRT8 and even surpassing the Chrysler 300 SRT8 and Dodge Charger SRT8. While there was no SRT8 version of the Grand Cherokee in the early 2000s, Jeep did offer a higher output version of the 4.7-liter V-8.

For fun, we’ve also included numbers on a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited, an SUV that we said in a comparison was 1.4 seconds faster than the same Jeep with a 5.2-liter V-8.

Hmmm, Im just as big as a WK2 SRT8 fan as anyone BUT this is still biased in that its a magazine review and tons of factor play into the final #s :/

I want to buy it but until an unbiased (owners test) test between the WK SRT8 and the WK2 SRT8 takes place, im not buying into any of this comparo stuff. So this is nice and all, but in reality what does it mean? Nothing. Few other magz tested these two and got just the opposite #s. Im waiting for the real deal Thanks for sharing it though Scott, good to see some mags getting different results


Hope the WK2 is faster though haha

Re: Motortrend compares the 2006 Jeep SRT to the 2012 Jeep SRT

Since we are picking best #'s

A test from Car and Driver:

http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...ee_srt8_page_3


"And if startling others with a burst of manic acceleration is your idea of SUV fun, this Jeep gets it done, and pronto. It’s not as fleet as the German mammoths, but 4.4 seconds to 60 mph and 13.2 at 104 mph in the quarter-mile is speedy indeed for a sport-ute, and that big Hemi V-8 makes such wonderfully menacing sounds in the process."

Face it Scott, you're never going to win with the Gen1 people, they seem to hate the Gen2 as a matter of principle

LOL, I don't hate the Gen2 as I own a WK2 Overland, I was just posting #'s, and before someone say's it I know the new one is night and day in quality, handling and interior.

Re: Motortrend compares the 2006 Jeep SRT to the 2012 Jeep SRT

and to prove my point...I did the same with the 2011 Grand Cherokee! Now we have IMO...the BEST 2011+ Grand Cherokee forums on the net

I'm sure it's not everyone but you gota admit, the Gen1 crowd has been the most vocal anti Gen2 group and no one has even driven the Gen2 yet.

Re: Motortrend compares the 2006 Jeep SRT to the 2012 Jeep SRT

I would love to have the WK2 SRT8....the more I read and see the more I want one. But my Overland will have to do for now....maybe in a couple years.
