The Beast in the snow!

Brother in law came down for the weekend from Detroit. Friday got a chance to drive his 2014 srt on sort of dry road. All I can say is awesome. But by the time Saturday afternoon rolled around we had about 10 inches of snow on the ground. All I can say is I am impressed how it handled in the snow. Granted its not as good in the snow as my QD2 jeep but its close enough where you would be fine in a lot of snow. Congrats to all you lucky owners of that beast of a machine. Hands down different than when I drove my buddies 2010 srt8 jeep in the snow.

Re: The Beast in the snow!

I just made $100 in donations for pulling 2 vehicles out of the snow drifted/ditches in the middle of an absolute blizzard! Seriously, at times you couldn't see out of the windshield. YIKES!

One was a 4-door Buick Sedan and the other........

Yep. A 2011 or 12 Grand Cherokee SRT. I don't blame him though, you really couldn't see anything at times.

Re: The Beast in the snow!

not really but the snow was light powdery and it went right through. If it was heavy wet snow might be different. All in all it handled well. Very Impressed!

Re: The Beast in the snow!

I live in northern Ontario Canada.We have had two severly cold winters.I am talking -45 c,add a little bit of wind and you have an easy -55c.The 2012 srt8 grand Cherokee starts and performs flawlessly,even in that severe cold.

I have hankook snows and it has no problem going through 30 cm of fresh snow.I must say I am impressed with the fact it has taken the severe weather without a problem.
