2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Now That's A V8
October 1, 2012
Recently I was lucky enough to spend some time in the new BMW M5. Nice car, you'll see more about it on our site soon.
One thing I wasn't a big fan of was the sound of the M5's twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8.
It has an odd, flat note that just didn't do much for me. Some others on staff quite liked it.
My lackluster feelings about the M5's engine tone hit home for me even further as I drove the Grand Cherokee SRT8 this past weekend. Now this thing makes the right sounds, in my opinion. Not obnoxious at low revs, but man does it get burly and kinda angry as the needle climbs up the tach toward redline.
