I simply think there is a better comprimise and shamefully I'm paying Chrysler less than I would for a better option.
Well thats fine I cant say I have ever seen a woman driving an SRT8 anyway. My wife doesnt drive my Z06 Corvette, same difference.
I mean I see what your saying, but just picture it as a Corvette with an SUV body. Not everyone needs to tow or offroad so they made a vehicle strictly for the performance minded people. As I said before I think the 5.7 Hemi is plenty for the Overland. It sounds good and has great power and is basically a good all around motor for that SUV. I know I wouldnt buy it if it had the SRT8 motor. One reason, fuel economy!!! The 5.7 although not amazing on fuel, it does do good compared to the SRT. I sold my 08 SRT8 because of that. Got sick filling it up with premium every 3 days. lol
