2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Open Wide

June 06, 2012

I was hoping a photo would illustrate this, but unfortunately it does not -- the front doors of our longterm 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 open reeeally wide. Like freakishly wide. In the pic above, the door is dang near orthogonal to the rest of the car.

Yeah, not the world's most exciting observation, I know. Still, I can think of no other vehicle offhand with doors that open this far, and I wonder why it is so on this Jeep. Ingress, maybe. But if you need to open the door this far just to get into the SRT8, there's no way in hell you'll fit in the seat once inside.

It's just unusual, that's all. Carry on.
