The same thing happened to our current WK2s. Lots of German (Mercedes) DNA still in them.

If an Explorer Sport could do 0-60 in less than 5 seconds and go off road as well as the Range Rover Sport can, I probably would! But I'm more of a Function over Form kind of guy.

And the fact that the V6 S/C powered Ford Explorer Sport has better 0-60 times (5.9 sec) than our V8 Hemi Powered WK2s sucks.

Re: Ultimate SUV: Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayenne?

Some additional Youtube Vids of this amazing vehicle:





I love the part where they quote the Land Rover Engineers stating " this is the Ultimate Luxury SUV"
Cool that they agree with me!

Re: Ultimate SUV: Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayenne?

Hilarious thread. As others have said, the NEW RR is on whole nuther level in comparision to the WK2. Sorry, the truth hurts. Even the 2013 RR Sport non-supercharged is MUCH better than a WK2 with the Hemi, IMO. Buddy just bought a 2014 Overland with the 5.7 and we both drove the WK2 and RR Sport back to back, and while it is heavier, has old-ish styling and is much more expensive, if you put both keys in front of me (and him) and said pick: RR Sport all day! Too easy...BUT if I have to pay for it, then the WK2 with $20-30k (2013 non-sc RR Sport) in my pocket is a much better option

I just dont understand why the RR Sport is mentioned and not the new full-size RR. @ $150k++ for the Turbo S, you might as well have the full-size RR S/C Autobiography as the comparision...and in that case, the RR S/C takes the cake all day long as the crem de la crem!!

How is he trolling? This is the "Other Rides" section right? So why wouldn't he put up videos of other cars?

How the @#$! am I a TROLL?!?!

You sound like a fanboy gutless piece of @#$!

I've been on this site and interested in the WK2 almost since it was first announced! I own a 2012 V8 Overland.

My primary issue (and a big part of why I started this thread) is my irritation that Jeep/Chrysler hasn't done what other manufacturers have achieved and created what could be considered the Ultimate SUV. They have all the technology & know-how. What they lack is confidence that people would actually buy it.

If they would just either add their Air Suspension system to the SRT, or better yet, offer the 6.4L Hemi in the Overland, then they'd have a vehicle that could actually compete capability-wise with the likes of the Range Rover Sport S/C or Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

I don't want to hear from fan-boys saying the WK2 is "more awesome" than vehicles that can beat it On and/or Off road. Calling the RR Sport a Piece of Junk when it hasn't even been out long enough it establish a reliability record is the same damn thing other folks did to the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee when it first came out!

Lots of folks think their WK2 is the most amazing vehicle to ever roll down a street and that's cool. But since THIS is the "OTHER RIDES" sub-forum, people with other opinions should be allowed to post facts & not fiction.
