Re: Got demolished by a Ford Explorer Sport
We drove the 14 V6 Overland first, I was looking to save a $ and I personally like the more youthful look of the Overland (although the Summit is growing on me).
My wife saw the Summit peaking around the corner and ogled over the trim, the salesman says "now this one is the V8 and it's loaded" she replies but this one looks much nicer to me. Her response after pulling the Summit off the lot was and I quote "now thats what i'm talk'n about". She said the V6 just felt a lot heavier and the HEMI was more balanced. The Jeep is tasked to be the "Work horse" and provide us with the ability to tow cars to and from the race track, perform as a real 4x4 and now with the HEMI a travel trailer has been added to the wish list.
To qualify my wife who has never been about the spec sheet (no matter how many times I recite them), has had as her daily driver, 02 RSX type S, 04 Mazda Speed3 (still her fav), 08 Audi S4, and now a Audi A3 TDI for commuting and utility. Before you ask she loves the 43mpg, hates the diesel stations and the torque is the only redeeming driving value.
P.S. just because they are everywhere in my town... My stock 3.0 Supercharged 13 A6 kicks the S*#t out of infinities all day every day. Dominating off the line and through every gear. Just say'n
