2009 srt8 or 2011 Summit

I was looking at ordering a 2011 Summit edition or have a chance to purchase a 2009 srt8 for a really good price. The srt8 has 22,000 miles and I can purchase it for around $33,000 with a 7yr / 100,000 maxcare warranty. The srt8 is loaded with premium sound including Nav. I was going to order a Summit within the next 2 weeks, but came across this srt8 while I was at a dealership. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: 2009 srt8 or 2011 Summit

what kinda help you looking for? that is a very nice deal on the SRT8, so I imagine you will be saving around $10k over the summit? a wk2 with the hemi will get a lot better gas mileage than the srt8, and I love the new wk2 interior. that being said, if you want on-road performance and don;t mind 4-5 mpg's difference, than get the srt8 hands down. $33k on a cherry srt8 is a good deal from what I have seen...anything low $30's is very nice on an 08+

How is it in the snow compared to a non str8? If you currently have a str8, would you trade it in on the newer grand cherokee?

Re: 2009 srt8 or 2011 Summit

Not a soul on here would trade an 09 srt8 for an 11 summit. When buying this vehicle mpg's just isn't a concern, it can't be as it's not comparable due to the differences the vehicle was made for. These rigs don't like deep snow as our front air dam is quite low, although I am an Alaska boy, born and raised and I will say that I was seriously impressed by the 6" deep snow capabilities of my beast.

Re: 2009 srt8 or 2011 Summit

By the way, that price is an incredible deal. Especially if it has a clean carfax report!

SRT8 there is no question about that, but if you wait around for 2012 SRT8 then that's a different story
