My experience with wide tires in front is they can be dangerous in heavy rain conditions (act as pontoons) and follow the imperfections of the road more than narrower tires.

That's for the GVWR, the curb weight will most likely be a higher increase, have not seen final specs.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating will increase from 5650 to 5800 lbs. (same as the 2011 Limited and Overland).

Fuel tank will be 24.6 gal., same as standard WK2 (vs 20.5 and 21.1 on the prior gen).

Any word on towing capacity and QL?

Re: The 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8: New and improved

from Milous' other posts....there will be no QL...but there will be a suspension system for the SRT. There will also be optional tow packages for the SRT.

Yes, I know it's stated the tow capacity will be greater, just looking for a number. Didn't see where QL wasn't offered but I did see the active damping. The two are not mutually exclusive.
