The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a vehicle commonly driven by backwards-hat types, who like to blast loud music and cut you off indiscriminately, as well as ostentatious chairmen of multinational corporations. With a new Grand Cherokee premiering in 2011, a void will be left in the lineup for those who aspire to the heights of a Mercedes-Benz ML63 or BMW X5M, but can't afford the fairly steep price tag.

Enter the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8, which is expected to come with a new 6.4L Hemi V8 putting out an estimated 525-horsepower, and rides on a rumored air-suspension platform. According to a report by Car & Driver, Jeep is attempting to best the X5M's performance figures, which means a 0-60 time of 4.0 seconds or less. While its the owner's prerogative to buy a car like this, we can't help but ask "why?"

When my Commander breathes its last breath, this will be my next vehicle, providing thay are still making them. I figure I can get, at least, 10 years out of the Commander.:woot:
