Some details and spy photo of 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been revealed. Which reveal some details of 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 model.The most interesting news we got about the 2012 Cherokee SRT8 model is it will equip 6.4 liter HEMI V8 which can generate approx 510 horse power and 8 speed automatic transmission. When torque is concerned then it provides 510 foot pound torque. However, things are officially not confirmed.

Recently launching her debut in 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee last week's horrendous enough, now another news, we just received official sketches depicting what appears to be a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. JeepGrand 2012 Cherokee will get a 6.4-liter HEMI crate.

The biggest news we receive is high Jeep will receive 392 po 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with anywhere between 505-525 horsepower and burning tires around 510 ft-lbs of torque, all driven through the AWD system was revised. 392 HEMI has also been rumored to appear in another 2010 SRT8 models, but we're guessing it will arrive first in mid-cycle refresh for both the Challenger and Charger in 2011.

If all the world like us, then HELL YEAH! We entered a big-time gossip territory here, but there is a glimmer of hope for both the Jeep and SRT enthusiasts together. We have heard from sources within Chrysler that something has been humming along quietly in the garage as the SRT engineers worked hard to develop a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 as a 2012 model.

If the sketch above is anything to go by, 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will be fine with beasts lowered, sporty suspension, fat five-spoke SRT wheels, larger diameter rotors with multi-piston calipers grippy, revised front and rear fascias, functional cold air induction hood hood and a larger spoiler at the rear. We like what we see, but like GM performance shop, we have to wait and see whether or not Chrysler could raise cash to put out another answer to a question nobody really asked.

As far as body style is matter of concerned, 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will classified as a 4×4 Limited model. However some source expresses their uncertainty over the spy photo that the prototype is of 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8. No word on when the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will make it official debut, but we suspect we could see it on the auto show circuit by the end of the year.

Opel performed the world debut of its first Compressed Natural Gas compact van with a turbocharger, the Zafira ecoM, at the Bologna motor show. This particular variant of Opel's 7-seater minivan is equipped with a 1.6-liter turbo engine designed to run on either natural gas, bio-methane or any mixture of the two. The unit is provided with special pistons, valves and valve seats, plus separate injection systems for natural gas and gasoline. The engine has an output of 150HP offering the Zafira a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph) and an average consumption of 5.3 kg of natural gas per 100 km in the MVEG cycle, emitting 144 g/km of CO2.

In gas mode alone, the vehicle can drive up to 370 km (230 miles), while the 14-liter reserve gasoline tank provides an additional range of 150 km (93 miles) for maximum flexibility. Zafira advantage in terms of flexibility and spaciousness are not disturbed in any way, influenced clever underfloor arrangement of four gas tanks around the rear axle.

In addition, the results clearly showed that the risk of fire with natural gas vehicles are not higher than usual. This is also due to the fact that natural gas is much less flammable than gasoline, and in case of a leak is highly unlikely, it soon disappeared. The new Zafira CNG also features the SAFETEC efficient system integrated into the passenger cell, which are reinforced by metal plates ultra-high strength. This ensures Zafira highest rating of five stars for adult passenger safety in Euro NCAP crash investigation.

New will be a / 1.4-liter, turbocharged gasoline engine with various power output of gasoline. A streamlining of the first initiated by VW with a 1.4-liter turbo engine itself, with many cars in Europe are now offering a turbocharged 1.4-liter or a 1.6 naturally aspirated powerplants instead of 2.0 liters.

Opel implants will most likely be booked for 2.0-liter version of OPC (or VRX for Vauxhall Astra) to rival the Golf GTI and other hot hatch, the engine is currently available in 240 hp turbo configuration.

NEW BMW X6 2010 ACTIVEHYBRID, features & photos

After the Bavarian manufacturer introduced the new BMW 7 Series Hybrid, now offering 2010 BMW X6 ActiveHybrid, both gasoline and electric-powered hybrid model. In fact, the X6 will be the first hybrid vehicle sold by BMW as it will arrive here in December, several months before the Series 7. This is because, like all other models are made in Spartanburg, North Carolina plant, X6 ActiveHybrid will be offered on the first North American market, which is not the case for the Series 7.

Of course, sports is the SUV and the BMW X6 does not intend to try to rival the Toyota Prius, far from it. Conversely, producers want to offer machines that perform like a V8 but with fuel consumption similar to a V6. I do not think that having a BMW X6 with the logo "Hybrid" in your yard you will win any prize for environmental activism, but at least, it will provide good-to-make a clear conscience and save them from a few seem to agree.

Hybrid or diesel?
Although manufacturers of diesel engines offered with X5, you have to wonder which future technologies - hybrid, fuel cell or diesel - the plant will eventually choose. Given the uncertainty, there is no technology that can be excluded in order not to lose the opportunity. In addition, according to Jochen Frey, BMW's communications director, many of the technologies will be available in future and option will become matter how you plan to use the vehicle. However, because the BMW diesel tends to combine with the performance, he would not have made more sense to offer the X6 and X5 with a diesel engine with a hybrid engine, considering the objectives of each other? In Europe, the X6 is offered with a diesel engine which, unfortunately, is not the case here, although this is a safe bet that the X5 ActiveHybrid is soon to follow. Problem solved ...

Compared with the conventional version, the BMW X6 ActiveHybrid have some differences. With the exception of a few symbols that identify it, the type of machine is pulling all the attention. Version was only offered a very good models equipped with the same machine with the X6 50i, a 4.4-liter biturbo display for 400 horses 450 lbs-ft of torque. Throw in a 2.4 KW electric motor for the total power of 480 hp and 575 pounds-ft of torque and you have the most powerful hybrid SUVs currently on the market with a 0-100 km / h time of 5.6 seconds. Not bad for environmentally friendly vehicles .

This engine is paired with a continuously variable transmission and seven-speed automatic, as with all versions of the X6, the all-wheel-drive come standard. Developed jointly with Daimler-Chrysler Corporation, now defunct, this BMW technology similar to Toyota's that allows you to drive in electric mode. In the case of X6, you can accelerate to 60 km / h or drive a distance of about 2.5 miles in electric mode, but very difficult to do without making those who participate in the back can not wait. This is a general criticism of all hybrid vehicles. There's a world of difference between theory and practice.
