SRT --- XM5, Cayenne, Range Sport, comparison & pictures

2009 SRT does pretty well considering.
The 2011 will be the better competitor in the areas the 2009 didn't, like interior, but that is if there is a 2011 SRT?


I love how Jeep got 20 in pts finals for cost...

Re: SRT --- XM5, Cayenne, Range Sport, comparison & pictures

For the Jeep to be compared to vehicles so far out of it's price range says plenty.

I agree, lets wait and see if/when the WK2 comes out. It's looking like it's going to be quite a bit better than the current WK.

They build the X5 and X6 (including the M variants) at the Spartanburg BMW plant less than an hour from me. I've seen them out on I-85 a few times in the M models. Pretty f-ing sweet looking vehicles.

Re: SRT --- XM5, Cayenne, Range Sport, comparison & pictures

honestly? i don't like the look of the BMW SUV.... its too... feminine for me..

the other 3 contenders are so much better looking. (the SRT8 being the muscular stand out)

Re: SRT --- XM5, Cayenne, Range Sport, comparison & pictures

If I was able to, I would buy a X5M. Imagine a garage with a Silver SRT8 WK and a Silver X5M? Ahhhh.

Re: SRT --- XM5, Cayenne, Range Sport, comparison & pictures

I like that X5M too...damn that thing is QUICK! But nuff said with the Jeep being compared to RR Porsche and BMW!!! Thats a win for Jeep

I can't believe they shed 1.6 of the 0-60 on the RR Sport SCH'd...down to 5.1 is quick for a heavy a$$ vcehicle like that

Great article...thanks LJS
