2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Fuel Economy Update for March

April 2, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

We added just over 2,000 miles to our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 during the month of March. Its last hurrah was a 1,200-mile road trip with Jay Kavanagh towing a 24 Hours of Lemons racecar behind it. We say last hurrah because, sadly, the Cherokee will be sent back to Jeep soon. Our year with the car is nearing its end.

Because this is the last month we'll have the SRT8, its lifetime fuel efficiency is listed below. What you won't find on the list is towing fuel economy. After just over 2,300 miles with a trailer on the back of it, we averaged 12.2 mpg in the Grand Cherokee SRT8. That's a tick above city mpg EPA estimates.

Worst Fill MPG: 10.8
Best Fill MPG: 19.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 14.0
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway/Combined): 12/18/14
Best Range: 380.4 miles
Current Odometer: 23,336

    Not too sad. You, InsidelineEdmundsWhatsHotLongTermBlog did a great job covering it, and I have no more that I need to know. There aren't even that many new posts anymore with quality new info. It was a great car, and I look forward to reviewing old posts later. BTW, Donna, you better bring back the well loved ReadersRides.
