Re: You guys dont get out much...so check this out...

All I want is for it to be fast as hell and be able to tow. Think theres a hidden hitch receiver behind the cover on the rear bumper?

Following the thread in the WK2 SRT 8 forum, yes... An available 5k hitch, reason being the tail pipes are split and not out the back.

Hotter than a $3 pistol, but how many SRT8s are they going to sell if gasoline goes to $6+ this summer as a CNBC reports suggests?

Re: You guys dont get out much...so check this out...

I wonder how many shudders it does in the 4.8 seconds it takes to get to 60 mph

The rear isn't hiding a hidden hitch, it's the cover they put on when you don't order the Tow Package, just like on the regular WK2.

I think Jpjr nailed it, it's far less obnoxious than the previous version and takes it to the level expected of a premium SUV. I'm sorry guys but the previous SRT was rarely ever mentioned in the same breath by someone looking to buy a Cayenne, X5 or Range Rover Sport where the new one is a natural competitor and a fraction of the cost.

Personally, I want a sleeper with just a hint of what's lurking under the skin, not an "In your face" exhibitionist vehicle that screams "Look at me". I got that out of my system 20 years ago but that's just me, YMMV.
