I was thinking to myself there was something way off there. Perhaps you were looking at the V6 numbers and mistook them for V8 numbers? If not, you probably shouldn't believe everything you have been reading on the internet.
Here are a few sample from zeroto60times :
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland (V-8) 0-60 mph 6.9 Quarter Mile 15.3
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (V-6) 0-60 mph 8.0 Quarter Mile 16.2
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 0-60 mph 4.5 Quarter Mile 13.1
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 0-60 mph 4.5 Quarter Mile 13.1
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4 Eco Diesel 0-60 mph 7.7
Others are reporting 4.2 for the 2014 STR8
Looks like the diesel is closer to the V6 gas than the V8 in 0-60 performance (there is a lot more to street driving satisfaction than 0-60 times)
