550 hp

No Jeep content...but lots of flat corning and amazing sounds from an SUV...

Always liked the looks of the Rover Sports. 550 HP makes it a wee bit more sexy.

Re: 550 hp

550hp is nice, but at the end of the day, it's still a Land Rover. Great for this year, next and maybe the year after but 10 years from now?

Have an 06 lr4 in the garage and it functions and runs great. oil changes, tires, control arm bushings are all its needed. All usual maintenance. The quality has really improved since the discovery days.

Some have problems true..

Lots of bad jeeps too, but for the same reason we buy em.

Fun vehicles. But I digress not the forum thread for discussing reliability of either.

Re: 550 hp

Agreed. Don't care about it, and yes I can afford it.

However, I have high hopes for the next gen Jeep. SRT better step it up. 600HP or bust!

I wear camo when I hunt, that's it.
Let's leave the diesel SRT for Duck Dynasty. I want gasoline greatness.
