We've just bought a caravan to tour around this amazing country, but have a 2015 SRT.
What are the pros/cons to touring long distance with the SRT vs diesel GC? We'll be sticking to the black top for the most part but want to understand its limits. I fully expect the Birdsville trail, etc, to be out of reach.
I figure the laws of physics will be the great equaliser wrt fuel economy, and the SRT doesn't lack grunt, and I see the monster brakes as an advantage. On the subject of fuel, anyone have any tips for supplementing the fuel tank with 98 unleaded? I expect it's not impossible to get caught short on the longer runs in QLD/NT/SA/WA.
The diesel Overland/Summit have the air suspension which might make the ride a little more comfortable and self levelling of course, but any disadvantage to towing a good size rig (within the legal specs) with the SRT suspension?
I haven't ruled out sticking my beloved SRT in storage in the meantime and buying a used GC diesel for the trip and selling afterwards, not keen in replacing the SRT with the diesel though
All thoughts/suggestions appreciated
