I do not know what people expect, as they cannot please everyone.
A majority of the folks with the harshest comments won't be buying anyway, because they can't afford it. But alas, they'll say they can in the internet world and throw around sharp criticism. It's just the way the cyber world works.

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

I'll freely admit I can't afford a brand new srt8

I don't see how not being able to afford one invalidates my opinion on how it looks though.

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

My opinion is that the WK SRT8 Is going to be a classic in 30 years ppl are and will continue to talk about it this WK2 SRT8 Is not because you can tell they tried realy hard to beat a classic and IMO they faild it looks like all the other SUVs audi bmw acura durango lol same ish ....all said you all know the first SRT8 Is a Classic and the follow up flopped

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

And that is exactly what the SRT Engineering team said they were shooting for. A better ALL AROUND vehicle, not just a better PERFORMING vehicle.

When it comes down to quality AND performance, I have no doubt this will be better than my WK in the long run.

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

Ok, here's my take on the whole WK vs. WK2 SRT

The WK SRT was to the WK as the Typhoon was to the GMC Jimmy. It was an all holds barred go fast exercise that had a limited run and a limited market. It's "performance at all costs" attitude doomed it to relative obscurity. While the WK SRT8 isn't doomed to obscurity, it's "boy racer" attitude seriously limits the market for a 45K+ vehicle.

OTOH The WK2 SRT is to the WK2 as the Cayenne Twin Turbo is to the regular Cayenne or like the X5M is to the X5, something that is simply more of a good thing without losing the high end qualities and capabilities the base models poses. While it's visually different it's done in a way where no one would have to make excuses for owning one. On the contrary, it could carry the same desirability a Cayenne TT has over the Cayenne S as the pinnacle of the model.

Remember too that the WK SRT8 only had to compete with the Trailblazer SS, not a tough job IMHO and I owned a TBSS.... It was never cross shopped with the Cayenne Twin Turbo (which I also owned) or an X5 4.8i (X5M now) which is what it's being shopped against today.

This might be the case in some locations, but in NYC almost ALL the Cayenne TT's & X5M's are leased. These potential customers would definitely not cross shop a Jeep.
