2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Towing Economy

September 24, 2012

After towing a crapcan with our longterm 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 over a distance of 1200.4 miles in the summer heat of California's central valley, I expected some pretty dismal fuel economy.

The result -- after the jump -- might surprise you.

13.4 mpg

Hey, that's not bad. Not bad at all. That's with the a/c working the whole time, with the cruise set to about 65 mph (gasp).

Eco mode, baby.
