2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Engine Hours

March 7, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Our Grand Cherokee has 627 hours on its engine. I know this because engine hours are among the data available in the instrument panel's Vehicle Information menu. It's in there with other items like coolant temperature, oil temperature and transmission fluid temperature.

Also, since the mileage is right there, it's easy to know that during those 627 hours we've averaged all of 34.3 mph.

That will be all.

  • that would actually be kinda cool. I've seen people that spend their lunch hour every day sitting in the car with it idling with the A/C on and it seemed bad that when they sell the car the buyer won't have any idea that the engine has run a lot more 'miles' than it shows.

    Never seen that before, but I like it. I bet it puts it into perspective just how much time we spend in our cars...

    Are those tach hours or Hobbs hours? (I don't expect many non-pilots to understand this)

    The average speed they are showing really illustrates the traffic they're dealing with there...my GTI's long-term trip data always reads about 42-43 mph. And my commute (probably 80% of my driving) is almost all rural secondary roads, with stop lights and stop signs every few miles - no limited-access highways. When I did all highways, it averaged like 50 mph.
