The Jeep Cherokee is one of the most recognizable 4x4s on the planet and with good reason. These capable four wheel drive vehicles are also one of the most well regarded off road vehicles around. With all that in mind comes the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 4WD Sport Utility. This high end Cherokee offers consumers everything they could possible want in a four wheel drive vehicle.
The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 4WD Sport Utility has the look of a Cherokee, but one that has been to the gym and possibly taken some steroids as well. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 offers a slicked back front fascia and a sleek, wind tunnel designed frame. The headlights are flared back and flank the centralized slatted grill, the underneath of which is done in a black honeycomb design. A set of LED lights sit just below this design and a large air scoop done in all black completes the front end design. The rest of the Jeep has a strong and hunkered down appearance that looks as if it is ready to jump into action at any time.
The SRT8 is powered by a massive 6.4 liter 8 cylinder engine that will generate a cool 470 hp and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. And even though this is one of the largest engines in the industry, it is still capable of getting 12 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. And this engine is mated to Chrysler’s 5 speed automatic transmission that helps to make the best possible use of all that power.
The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 4WD Sport Utility is a high end sports utility vehicle similar to many of the high end European offerings. A used SRT8 can be found in excellent condition for around $60,000, depending on options on board and of course mileage and condition.
