Video of the Day: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

By Jason Davis | June 28, 2013
This is a video of a British racecar driver driving a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 on a racetrack. It's also a review, of sorts, since it mentions some good things and some not good things about the $60,000+ SUV. But it's mostly just loud noises. We like loud noises. We also like fast cars. Which is why we like this video of a fast car making loud noises on a racetrack. And while that formula has been successful for decades, the twist here is that is also includes dirt. See that 5,000-pound sled get air in the beginning? I didn't think Grand Cherokee's could do that.
They're nice cars. We reviewed one not long ago. Though ours didn't have the new eight-speed transmission, we still loved it. Even if it only got 12 miles per gallon. So, how does host Justin Bell justify the Grand Cherokee SRT8? "It's made in America, and it can tow sh*t. Argue that oneā€¦" Yup. Our thoughts exactly.
