This year also heralds the return of the road-burning Grand Cherokee SRT8 and its monster 470-hp V8.
The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee still upholds its reputation for off-road prowess despite its manners and polish. An optional adjustable air suspension (“Quadra-Lift”) can vary the JGC’s ride height from 6.6 inches for easy passenger and roof rack loading to 10.7 inches for serious off-road work. In addition, a drive-mode selector (“Selec-Terrain”) can tailor the powertrain and suspension for specific types of terrain.
