2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Long Term Road Test

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: School Shuttle

August 15, 2012

 JGC_SRT_school.JPG Today was the first day of kindergarten for my daughter, and the JGC SRT8 was put to use for drop off and pick up. As you can see in the photo, the parking lot was packed with SUVs and minivans. The Grand Cherokee pretty much fit right in, even if it is the high performance version.

For what it's worth, my daughter much prefers the "black Jeep," as she describes it, saying it's much more fun. I'd agree with that. But the JGC is worlds more practical and easier to use than our Wrangler for daily schlepping duty.
