2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: A Wheel Difference

November 05, 2012

I humbly suggest that Jeep should consider offering the SRT8's steering wheel as an option on all Grand Cherokees. Yes, it's that good, even with the stupid flat bottom.

It's surprising how a thick, properly shaped steering wheel can affect your perception of a vehicle. In this case, the SRT's meaty wheel constantly reminds you that this indeed a high-performance SUV that will run low 13s. Then again, the awesome seats and the burly exhaust help quite a bit in that regard, too. 

But even if your Grand Cherokee didn't have a 470-horsepower V8 under the hood, I bet you would like it better if you grabbed this wheel every morning instead of the stocker.
