2012 GC SRT breakdown

I love it! But I have a big problem with the power output.

The hemi is rated 464hp and 475 ft lbs of torque. Bull$#!%

It sould have been more like 575hp and 600ftlbs

I am glad hennessey motorsport will mod one to get 800+hp

jeep should have made the dash with a carbon fiber, high performance racer look. This dash is very similar to the durango

I for one am not a fan of doing things for the sake of looks - when I was a kid, we called that being a posuer
I actually dig the interior, simple, uncluttered & focused. The new GC shares more than just a dash with Durango . . .

I would like to see an oil pressure gauge and transmission temp gauge. The center electronic info can stay but two more gauges are needed in an SRT.

Brembo brakes are excellent brakes but I much prefer the word JEEP or SRT8 to be stamped on the brake calipers.

man the SRT is so sexy....glad they redesigned the headlights for the 2011+ models...not a fan of the 2005-10 headlights

the whole front of the new SRT is gorgeous....dont know if HID's have been a standard factory option, but this one's got some nice chunky ones....not a huuuge fan of the LED strips, but they compliment the look very well here, not in the headlamp & mid bumper placement (vertically)....& am i mistaken in saying that its also got HID fogs on the outside edges of the LED's??

this thing is FULL of sensors....for almost EVERYTHING

quick search....

could be something to do with 1 or more of these....

• Adaptive cruise control (ACC): The system decreases the vehicle’s pre-set cruise-control speed when closing in on another vehicle in the same lane, or when another vehicle pulls into the same lane. The system will accelerate to the pre-set speed when the vehicle in front speeds up or moves into another lane. ACC will maintain a driver adjustable distance between the vehicle and the one in front of it, allowing the use of cruise control in light traffic without having to continuously adjust settings

• Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Using forward-facing radar sensors, this system detects when the vehicle may be approaching another vehicle too rapidly and alerts the driver so the driver can determine what action must be taken in order to prevent the vehicle from a collision



....more styling shared with the new Durango....big ol' 4" dual exhaust tips & big JEEP in the middle of shiny chrome trim....



definitely functional.....also read the front skid/bumper have cooling ducts for the brakes.....& i think the power-train output is limited for fuel efficiency reasons....SRT's in the past had like 11 MPG....new has ~50 hp/~45 lb/ft, & read there was a 13% highway consumption improvement in the new model (est 450 miles per tank...12 city/18 highway)

all in all....$56K on a bad commuter & limited off-road capabilities (i would be so hesitant to bring this through brush/branches, mud, over rocks...even tho traction/stability control, & all the sensors to adjust grip/slip, make it work great in slippery conditions, the suspension & components are designed for street/track)....then again, if i had $56K to throw away, i'd buy it in a heartbeat

I believe the yellow arrow you are referring to is part of the new 4x4 system, I think it senses things in the environment and adjusts accordingly.

Cool! Xjeremy, I would not take it offroad or tow anything with it. That is the perfect suv to beat up on those cayenne or mb 500. I will put my money on a Stock SRT whippping on a porche cayenne turbo.
