2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Long Term Road Test

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: The Comfort Factor

September 10, 2012


Not sure why this caught my eye while driving the Jeep this weekend, but it reminded me what an impossible task it must have been to get this Jeep to ride as well as it does.

Between its weight, its height and the sheer size of its tires, the Jeep isn't exactly a suspension tuner's dream. Throw in the fact that there's no room to put a big giant spare in the back and you're stuck with a set of rock hard run flats.

With all that in mind, I'd say this Jeep rides just about perfect. You want cush? Buy a Lexus.
