  • Will be arriving in showrooms, Chrysler Canada in the third quarter 2011

“The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 2012 represents the ultimate high-performance SUV combines the skills Jeep performance, a level of luxury and technology of high caliber,” said Ed Broadbear, Vice President, Marketing, Chrysler Canada inc.

Designed and built by the method TRS proven performance up to staggering levels, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 2012 the loop 0-96 km / h in 4.8 seconds, 0-160-0 km / h in 16 seconds and the quarter-mile in 13 seconds in addition to posting a top speed of 250 km / h and a braking distance of 116 feet from 96 to 0 km / h. 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3Powertrain that inspires respect
The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is powered by the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI ® V8 Chrysler Group MDS adopting energy efficient. It is estimated that this engine develops 465 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque – an increase of 45 horsepower and 45 lb-ft of torque from the 6.1-liter HEMI V8 it replaces.

Intake manifold with variable dosing, high camshaft variable valve lift and combine to maximize the maximum torque at low speed while maximizing the power at high speed over a wider rpm range. So 90 per 100 torque that occurs between 2800 and 6000 rev / min, allowing for standing starts dazzling and performance in a straight line.

MDS efficient technology comes standard exhaust system and new for 2012 active permit the neutralization of 4 cylinder greater speed range, which reduces consumption (estimated reduction of 13 per 100 road) and increase autonomy (about 850 km on one tank of gas).

Standard on the tested automatic transmission, steering wheel-mounted paddles are teaming up with the selector Auto / Stick to the floor and allow for fast gear changes on road and track. Both functions allow the driver to shift gears manually while the modulus of the transmission tuning prohibits overspeed. Fully adaptive electronic management of all passages speed allows the powertrain more responsive while reducing vibrations.

Comfort, handling and outstanding skills
For 2011, all models of Jeep Grand Cherokee have improved on-road comfort and refined, thanks in part to the structure of the body. The torsional rigidity was improved by 146 percent 100 compared to the previous model to enhance the comfort and durability and reduce noise, vibration and shock. This improvement comes from more than 5400 welds on the body alone, which corresponds to an increase of 53 per 100 spot welds, 42 p. 100 of arc welding and 38 per 100 in structural adhesives.

The new Grand Cherokee SRT8 2012, engineers have improved the handling even more.
With the best ride for life or for a Jeep-0.90 g on the skid trail – this model gets a new suspension with adaptive damping and adjustable SRT managed by the new Jeep Selec-Track, which involves several systems different (anti-skid system, adaptive damping, a strategy shift, torque distribution to the transfer case, locking differential performance of the electronic control flag and neutralization of cylinders) to automatically adjust the dynamic behavior of the vehicle. The driver can choose one of five dynamic modes, each corresponding to a condition of Conduct states:

  •  Auto: Soft suspension, automatically adapts to any situation by adjusting the adaptive suspension
  • Sport: better control of body movements in sports driving pleasure and better road
  • Tow: reduces pitching and bouncing for easy towing
  • Track: setting firm focused on the suspension of driving on track to neutralize the body movements and provide an ultimate driving experience
  • Snow: dynamic mode the most conservative so that the vehicle follows the desired trajectory safe when winter weather is inclement

As standard, the transfer case four-wheel drive Jeep Quadra-TracMC on request and Active Torque Split interviews a host of sensors to know as soon as possible a wheel skates and take appropriate action. The system “anticipates” the opening of the throttle when the driver crushes the accelerator to stop in order to maximize traction by preventing wheel spin. When it detects slippage of a wheel, the Jeep 4×4 system can transfer up to 100 per 100 of the available torque to a single rear wheel. The transfer case also improves handling by distributing torque between the front and rear axles to maintain the desired path. The new Grand Cherokee SRT8 also receives an electronic differential lock that eliminates rear wheel spin and improves handling.

The fully hydraulic steering and focusing on improved performance and received a new pump-duty radiator and a new pump. The revised steering ratio steering allows a more precise and direct. The new forged aluminum wheels 20-inch 5-spoke split are shod with P295/45ZR20 Pirelli PZero-flat (all-weather standard or optional three seasons). In terms of towing, note that the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 can tow a trailer of 2268 kg (5000 lb).2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4Exceptional braking
