2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Which One Would You Choose?

August 06, 2012

I don't think it was a coincidence that this Cayenne GTS owner parked right next to me. The parking lot wasn't all that crowded for one, and the similarities between the two were probably just enough for him to pull up to get a closer look.

Shocking how similar the two high-powered, sport utility beasts are when you look closely. The wheels, the spoiler and even the red brake calipers. The Jeep wins the horsepower race in this instance and is about $25,000 cheaper, too.

For me, though, it's the styling that seals the deal. The SRT8 is big, blocky and suitably tough looking while the Porsche is all sorts of awkward. I wonder if its owner was jealous? Dismissive?
