2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Running Through The Gears Video

September 11, 2012

It's a rare occasion in Southern California when there's room enough to stomp the Grand Cherokee's throttle wide open and hold there through a few gears, but when it happens it's truly satisfying.

And because everyone should get to hear this thing snorting its way up to freeway speed, I've made a video.

Acceleration isn't crushing like it would be in, say, a new Viper, but there's a certain patriotic pleasure that comes with oncorking 6.4 American liters -- especially today.

Enjoy.
