Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 (2012)

The most powerful and technologically advanced, high-performance Jeep vehicle ever - the all-new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 - arriving in the summer of 2011 with a combination of legendary Jeep capability and usability, combined with the high engineering performance of the famous street of the Chrysler Group LLC and Racing Technology (SRT) team.

Provide an excellent performance in all driving conditions, and integrates the basic functionality of SRT - including functional, performance-oriented style, the world-class ride and handling, benchmark braking and race-inspired events interior - 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Jeep to expand the range and is based on the successful launch of the award-winning 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

"The all-new 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 is the ultimate performance SUV that offers a combination of the Jeep and capacity efficiency, world-class performance, luxury and sophistication, and innovative technology," he said Mike Manley, president and CEO - the Jeep brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "Jeep vehicles have long been known for their off-road capabilities. In addition to traction Jeep four-wheel drive and utility, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 capacity to a new level by offering extreme performance driving enthusiasts from the street and track.

"Our new performance SUV benchmark portfolio effectively expands Grand Cherokee, and continue to attract new Jeep dealer customers," said Manley.

Designed and built by technology SRT formula, which raises performance to astonishing levels, the new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will run from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in mid- 16 of the second area can cover a quarter mile in the region mid-13 second has a top speed of 155 mph, and brakes from 60 to 0 mph in 116 feet.

The owners of any Chrysler Group vehicle SRT receives one day of professional driving lessons from Richard Petty Racing School as part of the SRT Track Experience is designed to maximize their knowledge and skills of driving on the road or track. The sessions are held throughout the year on selected tracks.

transmission power awe-inspiring

Transfer of power in 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, Chrysler Group brand new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 with the Fuel Saver technology provides estimated power 465 and 465 lb-ft of torque - an improvement of 45 hp and 45 lb- ft. torque on the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.

An active intake manifold and camshafts with high lift camshafts provides maximum torque at low speed while maximizing high-end power at a speed range wider and better. Specifically, 90 percent of the maximum torque is available between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, which allows you to create stand inspired and improved linear performance.

Standard Fuel Saver Technology, and the new-for-2012 Active exhaust valve system allows you to work four-cylinder is carried out over a wider rev range, giving both to improve fuel efficiency - roughly 13 percent increase on the highway - and the extended range of 450 miles on one tank of gas.

standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters to join the standard car stick on the floor. Both are paired with automatic transmission has been a lively dialogue to move the road and track. Both methods allow the driver to move, even if the transmission controller calibration prevents situations, which could rev the engine. Fully adaptive electronic control of all the move will make the transmission more responsive to minimize harshness.

excellent ride, handling and the ability

For 2011, all Jeep Grand Cherokee with a grace enhanced and refined on-road ride in part to the body structure. The torsional rigidity was improved by 146 percent over the previous model, for improved ride, durability and reduced noise, vibration and harshness. The improvement is achieved with more than 5,400 welds in the body alone, an increase of 53 per cent of spot welds, an increase of 42 percent-arc welding and an increase of 38 percent in structural adhesives.

With the new Grand Cherokee SRT8 2012, engineers have improved manipulation.

The best treatment of the Jeep vehicle ever - is capable of 0.90 G-slip pad - features the new SRT-tuned system, adaptive suspension damping to manage the new Jeep selective-track system, which is connected to different systems ( stability control, adaptive damping, the change of transmission strategy, to refer the matter Torque Distribution, Electronic Limited Slip Differential performance of the accelerator and off of the cylinder) to automatically tune the vehicle dynamics. Drivers can choose from five modes of transport, specific dynamic driving conditions:

Cars: provides for the ride compliant and automatically adapts to any situation of the road, using the air suspension tuning

Sports: improved body control for a sporty, fun to drive, ride on the road

Towing: Security provides a reduction in pitch and the bounce of a greater towing capacity

Hint: It offers a high yield levels, "at the point on the track" suspension option to block the movement of the body for the ultimate experience in managing

Snow mode offers the most conservative dynamics, so the vehicle safely stay online in difficult winter conditions

Jeep Quadra-active rule in the application of four cases Wheel Drive Transfer Trac uses input from a variety of sensors to determine tire slip as soon as possible and take corrective action. The system used to detect gas Anticipating the rapid movement of the throttle stop and maximize front wheel slippage occurs. When it detects tire slippage, the Jeep 4x4 system can transfer up to 100 percent of available torque to the rear wheel.

Refer the matter to improve also the transformation of the ratio of torque between front and rear axles to keep the driver's intended path. The new Grand Cherokee SRT8 is also Electronic Limited Slip Differential, which eliminates slippage of the rear wheel and improved handling.

Panned performance steering system is improved with a new pump, heavy and cold. revised transmission offers drivers feel more direct intervention in the middle.

New Division 5-spoke 20-inch forged aluminum wheels rolling on Pirelli P Zero P295/45ZR20 tires runflat (standard or available for all stations in three seasons).

To complement the capabilities of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a trailer rating of 5,000 pounds.

Exceptional braking

SRT Chrysler Group vehicles are well known for its world-class braking. Stopping power for 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 comes courtesy of new high performance brakes Brembo SRT-wheel antilock brake system (ABS).

The braking performance of 116 meters 60-0 km / h is possible for new, painted red, Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers and vented discs on all four corners is measured 15 inches (front) and 13.8 inches (back).

Exterior dynamic and functional

Appearance of functional performance in 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 features of the "planted" the appearance of high-performance sports car has been reduced by 1 inch and adding new SRT-exclusive, body-color wheel flares, and half of the liner threshold.

A new piece panel includes multifunction LED daytime running lights are reflected on one side only for the new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, while a grid body color with a black and chrome inserts only adds to the aggressive look.

integrated lower grille painted black and a brilliant piece of rock features newly designed integrated brake ducts belly for improved cooling and heat resistance. Fill the new front is a newly sculpted hood with two functional heat extractors black for added engine cooling.
