    Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 4dr 4x4 Specs and Prices

    Dollar for dollar there isn't much, if anything, that trumps a '10 Grand Cherokee SRT8 on the road or at the track. How about in a low second range and mph in about feet.

    The sports-tuned suspension and all-wheel-drive allow the Jeep SRT8 to hold 0. Plus there is no electronic speed governor, leaving the top speed rev-limited revving to redline in top gear to just shy of mph.

    Thanks to all-wheel drive, huge Brembo disc brakes, and the Electronic Stability Program ESP , the Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a hp sports car that any idiot can push into performing heroic feats without becoming an obituary headline. That is, unless you just totally blow a corner altogether. Technology can only save your dumb ass from so much stupidity. Rallying through the twisties you quickly forget that there are two additional doors, seating for three more people, and plenty of storage space behind you.

    We appreciated all of the cupholders, storage bins, and pockets which were required to keep our valuables from becoming projectiles inside the Jeep during our hot laps around town. The five-speed automatic did an awesome job of keeping the 6.

    We also liked the toggle shifter feature. You can downshift to help slow down in the corners and when you jump back on the throttle the tranny automatically upshifts, but only when you reach the 6, rpm redline. This feature let us concentrate more on driving and less on the RPM and shifting. By design you'd expect a Jeep to be somewhat spartan and utilitarian. The interior has all the accoutrements you would expect to find in both a high-end sports car and in a modern-day SUV.

    With a heavy foot on highways, in town, and on winding roads we averaged 13 mpg. After railing the Grand Cherokee SRT8, you'd think we'd be too woozy with bliss from all the adrenaline pumping through our veins to actually have any legitimate complaints.

    Aside from the inch wheels, series street tires, lack of a low range in the transfer case, and less ground clearance than grandpa's Cutlass we do have some grievances. With more horsepower than a nuclear aircraft carrier, it seems like a sin that the dual exhaust tips fill the space where a factory tow hitch should be.

    Perhaps rightly so, since the SRT8 Grand only has a tow rating of 3, pounds. Altering the suspension to handle more load would surely compromise the crisp sporty handling. Who needs towing capacity when you can go mph? The powerful V-8 induces some torque-steer, although it's not the aggressive torque-steer that you feel in a front-wheel-drive car. It's most present in corners where you let off and jump back on the throttle around the apex of a corner.

    The easy-exit auto seat feature more than once crushed our driving-disheveled cargo on the rear passenger floor someone should have strapped that stuff down in the back. Fortunately, this particular convenience feature among others can be turned off by simply toggling the switches on the steering wheel.
