there is now way i would ever trade my srt8 for a slower 2011 jeep. once youve experienced a jeep accelerating that fast, you wont care about mileage. and i live in the fargo, nd area and mine has no issues in the snow.

I would NOT trade my 07 SRT8 for an 2011 Grand Cherokee. That looks like a good deal on the 2009 SRT, go for it !

Re: 2009 srt8 or 2011 Summit

Has any said SRT yet? Drive both and tell us what you think.

That is a good price on the SRT if it is clean.

Re: 2009 srt8 or 2011 Summit

I look at it like this...

They both serve 2 very different purposes. One costs alot more to maintain and drive regularly... brembo brakes are expensive.

On the other hand the other is a first year production vehicle, and as can be seen in the wk2 section there are still some assembly line bugs to be worked out...

If this was a 09 srt vs. 2012 JGC, I would hands down go with the 2012, smoother ride, more options, nicer interior, beautiful exterior... but if for nothing more I would take the srt simply because its had 4 years to work bugs out, well that and I do like going fast and LOVE how the srt8 grand drives.
