Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Priced From $55,295

Chrysler has just released the pricing for the high performance 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 starting from $55,295. As one of the most powerful SUVs on the market, this Jeep packs a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, cranking out 465-hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. This is by far the most powerful Jeep ever offered. It will rip of a 0-62 mph time in 4.8 seconds with a top speed limited to 155 mph.

The Jeep features new steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and has the new Selec-Track traction-enhancing system. This new system interacts with the stability control, adaptive damping, transmission shift strategy, transfer case torque proportioning, electronic limited slip differential, throttle control and cylinder de-activation. This new system offers five modes- Auto, Sport, Tow, Track and Snow making this next-gen SRT8 model user friendly all year round.

Don't know what this has to do with this thread, but I thought at first this was the same incident as last year. Seems like it's not.

correct

You're right, it has nothing to do with this other than the frustration having pre-ordered a 2012 SRT8 and now seeing the $$$ increase from the consensus MSRP.

Fair enough point
