Re: What would you tell Jeep to add to the next version of the GC SRT?

I would request a track package for those actually looking to use theirs for track days. So, cut some weight, a front camera with overlay abilities like in the Corvette, more track oriented suspension, larger oil cooler, a rear diff cooler, stainless steel brake lines, an area for front and rear tow hooks (for the track, not like the double ones in the lesser GC's) and as said earlier, ability to tune ECU.
Adding aftermarket intake and exhaust is useless on these vehicles.

The Jeep SRT will never be a "track" car, except maybe the dragstrip. No amount of weight reduction will help this fact. The only thing it is good for is towing your racecar to the track in style.

My local track, Mid-Ohio, won't allow "SUV's" on open track day...

When they name it Trackhawk then it will be one. Can't argue with a name. Then you will have to tow your Jeep SRT to the track with another Jeep SRT.

Re: What would you tell Jeep to add to the next version of the GC SRT?

I track my Nissan 370Z regularly and I have tracked the SRT too at California Speedway. It is actually quite capable and a lot of fun with the 30/70 AWD in corner exit. Body roll is minimal, but I think a dedicated package would be awesome for those like us when my wife wants to track the vehicle we towed our track car with.

I think there are some weight savings on the 2016. A few parts were converted to aluminum if i'm not mistaken.

Re: What would you tell Jeep to add to the next version of the GC SRT?

The two things I would like changed to make this SRT perfect in my eyes are the seats and steering wheel. I believe the seats could have more side bolster similar to the Cayenne, to feel more snug. I also think the steering wheel diameter can be a little bit smaller to give it a better feel.

Re: What would you tell Jeep to add to the next version of the GC SRT?

In no particular order...

1. Step the interior up again. The seats look cheap as hell. Possibly offer a dark high quality wood gain similar to whats available on the high end Mercedes. r
2. Better suspension. NOT smoother. Just better.
a. Either adaptive air that cannot be slammed. I don't want to make it any easier for the ghetto lovers to ruin their SRT
b. Wheels more flush with the fenders. The X5M, ML63, and Cayenne TT do this well. Now ofcourse I don't want it retard slammed like the RM extreme. You still need to be able to pop a curb.
3. SRT Gauges should be available at all times when the car starts. It shouldn't be an app
4. A better stereo! My Silverado High Country with Bose radio blows the HK away. My friends Denali with Bose is insane!
5. More leather options.
6. a onene program like the Viper gets.
7. Lose about 500#s
8. Hellcat motor as the only motor available. Two tiers of SRT is silly.
9. Power fold mirrors
10. Faster power liftgate and able to stop at a particular position like my wife's Mercedes ML
11. Better navigation system. This hit a letter and wait 5 seconds before you can hit the next is annoying
12. Better offset on OEM wheels. The Jeeps wheels should fit so well that we don't need aftermarkets
13. Exclusive service at select dealers for certain SRT vehicles. Any SRT that retails for over $60k maybe. Or maybe make it $65k.
14. Better brand control. If some silly motivational IG goofball wants to put a bunch of stupid ****ing glow lights and color changing demon eyes all over their Jeep, SRT should reserve the right to force a buy back so these turds can no longer deface the Jeep. Then they can get a voucher for a Charger so they can ghetto that up! I can't stand white trash mods on these rigs

I am going to say yes to almost all of this. Especially 3,4,11,12.
