The new Jeep Cherokee SRT8 is the most powerful SUV, which the manufacturer has ever made.

It has a 6.4 liter HEMI V8 with 465HP (342 kW) and 630Nm (465 lb-ft) at2800RPM. 0-100 km.h in 4.8 seconds and a top speed is limited of 250 km/h (155 mph). The big SUV is a real rival to the mighty BMW X5M, ML63 AMG and Cayenne Turbo.

The new Cherokee SRT8 offers paddle shifters on the steering wheel, better interior quality and brutal exterior. It also comes with a mind-blowing 19-speaker premium Harman Kardon audio surround-sound system with total power of 825 Watts and a 10" subwoofer.

Furthermore, the 2012 Cherokee SRT8 is able to pull up to 0.9 G on the skid pad, so it is not fast only in straight line, but the big SUV is able to turn very well. That's why, the famous racer Sabine Sabine Schmitz took the big SUV to Nurburgring.

Check out the video below to see how the 2 336 kg (5 150 lb) SUV manages to do a lap around the Ring in 8 minutes and 49 seconds.
