too bad....I was really considering the SRT8.

I'm waiting till 2014 with the direct injected Supercharged 6.4L gets put in. JUST KIDDING.
I really want to see the 8 speed in for at least a year before I commit. I figure someone on here will test the limits of the tranny and we'll see how it goes.
I have good faith in the ZF after reading into it and seeing that other quality cars that have the same tranny.

it cold be the same drivetrain or similar to the last SRT....Im gonna guess the single speed transfer case QT1 with the 230 mm axle and 3.70 gears...BUT with ELSD! What will the limited slip do for the SRt Jeep? Could mean incredible traction?

Re: The 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8: New and improved

Just a little info....wheels may be coming in that gunmetal as an option.

I sat in the 2011 srt charger yesterday and WOW! The carbon fiber is real....can actually feel the fiber when you run your hand over it. The steering wheel is great...magnesium paddles. Both will be the same on the Jeep.

I also had the chance to sit in the summit....loved the quality, hated the dash color.

Gunmetal eh? So anyone confirm this? If they do offer that as an option I think it would look a little odd with chrome or shiny bits on the rest of the car? Dunno - I guess we shall see, it is looking good. I am def in for one of these...time ro retire my Rover to off road only duty.

Also - on my 2006 SRT8 - I had no bugs so some folks were like wait till they have the bugs worked out, never happened with mine. Thing was rock solid and bullit proof, so much in fact I sold my M5 with 12k miles on it as it simply sat in the garage as I chose to drive the Jeep and beat on that everyday, the M5 was too delicate clutch wise and $$$.

Anyway - I am getting one - miss my old one.

The only thing I really want to wait for is the 8-speed option.
