Jeep presents the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8

Last week, at the NY Auto show, Chrysler debuted its Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011, that's expected to be on sale at the beginning next year. Not wasting the time, this carmaker has released now a SRT8 teaser sketch variant of the all-new 'ute, that's expected to be on market as a 2012 unit with the official revealing at least one year away.

The Grand Cherokee SRT8 as its name implies, will run with a V8 high-output delivering over 5 hundred horsepower and 5 hundred pound-feet torque. A good candidate for this job is a variant of the firm's upcoming HEMI 6.4-liter, that's expected to appear also in some other SRT units.

Other highlights: sportier rear and front fascias, big street-oriented tires and wheels, high-quality disc brakes, air scoop on its hood, small spoiler place above its tailgate, lower overall ride and also height firmer suspension.
