2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Final Towing Trip

April 5, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Our long-term 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8's final trip was a thousand-mile voyage to tow my crappy race car to Sonoma Raceway and back. This time, I also had to pack all the spares and tools and supplies in the cabin. Big time Tetris exercise, since I had a passenger, our gear and a 50-pound dog to fit as well.

One thing I noticed is that the cargo area is deceptively small. Well, let me clarify: it's wide and accommodating for items near floor level, but as you stack things higher, the space becomes quite pinched by the aggressively sloping hatchback.

I was able to fit all the goods, so no harm, no foul. But styling definitely won over function here.
