2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Fuel Economy Update for March
April 2, 2013
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
