Re: Test drive and walk around of a '14 Max Steel V8 Overland with Indigo interior

Thanks for the video, especially since that's the color combo I'm getting. The blue of the seats looks lighter than I have seen before, and even lighter than the door trim. No matter what Colorado Jeep says, I'm glad I'm getting it. (Frost will get too dirty and black, although I understand why people like it, is too boring for me.)

The Hemi sounds nice. I hope the gas V6 can approach that sound.

To me you'd have an awesome core for around $40k. These Jeeps don't need half the fancy shit that comes as available options. It's a badass truck in any trim.

Don't worry it looks almost black in person, especially while sitting inside of it. As far as the V6 goes.. it has a hollow sound and has no soul! But I like it for good power and efficiency.

What's that 0-60 time? 8 secs? If so, that's slower than with the 5/6 speed trans.

My guess is that it's faster than the previous 6 speed Hemi. It was even more responsive using the paddles and held the rpms which made it feel fast. I didn't hammer it though since it wasn't broken in yet.

I wouldn't beat my brand new vehicle just to answer questions of the masses. You have to live with the vehicle, not them. My guess would be there will be someone or some magazine company that will do this soon enough.. Thanks SRT8 for all the information your giving us that are still waiting.

Re: Test drive and walk around of a '14 Max Steel V8 Overland with Indigo interior

What's the green flag to the right of 100mph? Or is that a green leaf for Eco mode?

Re: Test drive and walk around of a '14 Max Steel V8 Overland with Indigo interior

In the photos it looks like the leather has wrinkles and indentations. Did you take a close look at the seats?

If I get mine in time I'll be driving from Delaware to Eastern LI a few days before Easter. I hope I can learn to drive it before getting back into NY traffic.

That is displayed when you put the trans into "Sport mode". When it's in said mode it revs out higher before shifting into the next gear. It seems like a pretty slick feature.

Blue appears very dark in person ... without sunlight you would think it is almost black.

I agree, sometimes photos are misleading, you have to see it with your eyes
