Wink Re: WK2 Test Drive

Okay, so the WK has the most front wheel travel of any Grand Cherokee, has the best version of the 4.7 liter engine (best Jeep engine) which you can't get in the WK2, and a solid rear axle with Quadradrive 2. Oh but it has a plastic dashboard and fake aluminum trim. Okay I see Jeep's priorities now with the WK2. Yes English is my first language and the spelling/grammar on my first post was very well actually.

Are you sure you don't mean very good?

Didn't you say you were leaving?

If not, how about some pictures of your ride. I'd like to see what I'm missing.

I can see them anywhere. I want to see his WK Laredo X to see what I'll be missing when I get the '14 Overland.

Re: WK2 Test Drive

Actually the X5 comes with 4 years or 50,00miles bumper to bumper and full maintenance. Where were you on that one dipsh*t? I apologize for saying whats on most of the real Jeep Grand Cherokee owners' minds. I see this community is for the WK2 mentality. I found a new board with people who actually know what a Jeep Grand Cherokee was and should be (WK with 4.7 quadradrive 2, solid rear axle and independent front with longest wheel travel of any Grand Cherokee, oh and a rugged plastic utilitarian interior) not what they have become now. Thanks Scott (amateur) Peace out. Enjoy your WK2 wanna be X5's. Peace!!!!!

I wouldn't want an antiquated engine, I don't care about wheel travel or QD2 cause I don't off road, and I like my interior. lol.

I own a 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited with a hemi. I drive my car very hard and it has 130,000 miles on it and it still running great.

I took a new wk 2 out for a test drive with a 3.6 and I was a little disappointed in its ride. it was a little pokey and it rode kind of like a Camry, not a lot of personality. the dealership had limited inventory and I didn't really get to drive the car of my choice.

on paper and with almost 300 horsepower I thought it would be a little bit more responsive. waiting for the for 14 model.

love the idea of the 8 speed and great gas mileage. Can't wait.

...and BMW let's you pay for it.

Trust me, as a previous 2006 X5 4.8is, 2006 M5 and 2006 760Li-owner (yeah, those were the days..), I know what I'm talking about.

Technologically, the 2006 WK was more advanced than the $70K X5...
