A Porsche Cayenne Turbo wishes it looked this good.
Best handling Jeep ever
The 420-bhp 6.1-liter V-8 is gone, replaced by a larger and more powerful 465-bhp 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. There is permanent 4-wheel drive (Quadra-Trac, in Jeep speak), a 5-speed automatic, and a tow rating of 5000 lb. If you’re really in a hurry while trailering those jet skis, Jeep says the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 pulls 0.90g on the skidpad.
One shouldn’t judge a muscle car by its stripes.
Beneath the blue and white nostalgia resides modern mechanicals with fuel injection, 6-speed transmissions, traction control and ABS. The newest Dodge Challenger SRT8, an inaugural edition 392 model, rivals the performance of its present-day peers. The Shelby GT350 aims to repeat history, not on the track, but by raising a Mustang’s performance to the level of a sports car.
The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 is the most potent variant of the division’s iconic 4-door muscle car to date.
The heart of the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 is a new 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. The engine is rated at 465 bhp and 465 lb.-ft. of torque.
Dodge estimates that the 2012 Charger SRT8 can hit 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, reach the quarter mile in under 13 and possess a top speed of 175 mph. In handling, the car is expected to pull 0.88g of lateral acceleration on the skidpad.
