The most powerful, technologically advanced, a high-performance Jeep vehicle ever - the all-new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 - arrived in the summer of 2011 with a combination of legendary Jeep capability and utility companies, merged with the Engineering peak performance of the famous street of Chrysler LLC and Racing Technology (SRT) team.
Provides excellent handling in all conditions and complemented by SRT key properties - including functional, performance-oriented design, world-class ride and handling, braking and race-inspired interior appointments - the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Jeep expands the range and builds on the successful launch of the award-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011.
"The all-new 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the ultimate performance SUV that offers a combination of ability and user friendliness Jeep, world-class performance, luxury and sophistication, and advanced innovative technologies," said Mike Manley, President and CEO - Jeep brand, Chrysler LLC. "Jeep vehicles have long been known for their off-road capabilities. Besides Jeep four-wheel drive and utility, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 capacity to a new level by giving fans extreme performance for the conduct of the street and track.
"Our new performance SUV benchmark grows efficiently Grand Cherokee portfolio, and will continue to attract new customers in the Jeep showrooms," said Manley.
Designed and built using the proven formula that raises SRT performance to dizzying levels, the new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will go from 0 to 60 km / h in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 km / h in the mid 16 second range can cover the quarter mile in the mid-range 13 seconds, has a top speed of 155 km / h and the brakes 60 to 0 km / h in 116 meters.
The owners of the car, Chrysler Group SRT receives a day of professional driving lessons from Richard Petty Racing School as part of the SRT track experience, designed to enhance their knowledge and driving skills on the road or the track. Sessions held throughout the year on selected tracks.
Awe-inspiring power transmission
Power Transmission 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the new Chrysler Group 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 with the Fuel Saver technology, which provides an estimate 465 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque - an improvement of 45 horses and 45 lb-ft of torque on the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
Active intake manifold and high-lift cam with the cam slowly as possible to produce low-end torque while maximizing high-level performance and to improve the wider rpm band. In particular, 90 percent of torque available between 2800 and 6000 revolutions per minute, which allows a permanent inspiration starts, and improved performance in a straight line.
Fuel economy standards for technology and new-for-2012 operating system allows the exhaust valve four-cylinder engine is operated over a wider rev range, capable of producing as well as improve fuel efficiency - about 13 per cent increase on the highway - and extended about 450 miles on one tank of gas.
Standard joysticks mounted steering wheel to reach the stick automatic standard on the ground. Both are paired with an automatic transmission tested, so a choice of moving animated road and track. Each method allows the driver to pass, while the transmission controller calibration prevents situations that could turn the engine over. Fully adaptive electronic control of all the changes makes the powertrain more responsive, while reducing the hardness.
Excellent ride, handling and the ability to
For 2011, all models with a Jeep Grand Cherokee with improved and refined road race in part to the body structure of the car. The torsional rigidity has been improved 146 percent over the previous model, for improved ride, durability and noise reduction, vibration and harshness. This increase was achieved with more than 5400 welds in the body alone, marking an increase of 53 percent in spot welds, an increase of 42 percent in arc welding and an increase of 38 percent of 'structural adhesive.
With the new Grand Cherokee SRT8 2012, engineers improved further handling.
The Jeep vehicle handling growing - capable of 0.90 g on the skid pad - has a new SRT-listening, adaptive suspension damping managed by the new Jeep Selec-Track system that interacts with several different systems ( stability control, adaptive damping, transmission strategy for change, the dose of torque transfer case performance electronic limited slip differential, throttle and cylinder activation) to automatically adjust the vehicle dynamics. Drivers can manually select from five modes of specific dynamic driving conditions:
Auto: allows the tour the most consistent and automatically adjusts to any road situation using adaptive ride control
Sports: gives you more control of the body for a sporty, fun to drive, walk down the street
Trailer: provides a safe reduction in the pitch and bounce higher towing capacity
Track: offers a high performance, the company, the suspension "track-tuned" for the opportunity to block the movements of the body of all the experience of time management
Snow offers the most dynamic conservative, the vehicle in order to maintain security on-line in the cold winter
Standard Jeep Quadra-Trac active on-demand four-wheel drive transfer case uses the input from a variety of sensors to determine tire slip at the earliest opportunity and take corrective action. The system uses gas Anticipate the sense of rapid movement of gas from one end and maximizes the front-wheel slippage occurs. When gaps are identified tires, the Jeep 4x4 system transfer up to 100 percent of available torque to one wheel.
The transfer case also improves the handling of dosage of torque between the front and rear axles to maintain the driver's intended path. The new Grand Cherokee SRT8 is equipped with an electronic limited slip differential which eliminates wheel spin back and improves handling.
The adjusted return, fully hydraulic steering system has been improved with a new pump heavy cooler pump. Prepare revised offers drivers more direct feel and response center.
Redistribution of 5-spoke 20-inch wheels forged aluminum tower P295/45ZR20 Pirelli PZero run-flat tires (standard all-season or three seasons).
To complete the position in 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is rated to tow 5000 pounds.
Chrysler Group SRT vehicles are well known for its world-class braking. Braking power in 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 courtesy of new high-performance brakes with ABS SRT Brembo four-wheel (ABS).

Remote keyless entry: Locks and unlocks doors and turns on interior lighting. If the vehicle is equipped with a security alarm, the remote also arms and disarms that system
Remote start: OK starts the engine and actuates the key comfort parameters with environmental conditions while maintaining the key vehicle safety
Rollover accident Detection: Sense and apply a pre-tensioner bearing and / or standard full-length side curtain airbags as needed
Belt pretensioners: During a collision, impact sensors initiate front seat belt pretensioners to remove slack in the seatbelt system, which reduces the forward movement of the occupant's head and torso
Sentry Key engine immobilizer: Use the key engine that has an embedded transponder programmed with a security code for preventing theft of vehicles. When the ignition key is pressed, the controller sends a random number to the transponder and the engine must be started. If the wrong key is used, the engine shuts off after a few seconds
