Re: 2014 WK2 SRT Press images / reviews / videos

^47 degrees and a 4.3 0-60mph time is awesome. My Wk1 SRT was 4.4 and that had 1/4 tank and 25 degrees.

Scott- What temp and other factors will produce the 3.9 sec 0-60mph?
If the Jeep can best BMW and Porsche in the performance numbers, sales will be good and it may convert some hold outs like myself even at the inflated prices. That was what the Wk1 was known for "value", being a better performer than the competition at a lower price is the winning formula.

Even if the jeep never beat the imports,I don't think the price is inflated,the SRT is not for everybody,for what you get compare to the imports it is a steal.
That is why you have the other brand of Jeep to match your budget,there is a Jeep to meet everybody budget.
Factory command start, I am just saying,I shall say no more,I have a long list of luxury item that the Jeep has that the imports lack,and if they do carry it,you are paying $40 to $50,000 more.

Did I say 8 inch dash display,9 inch rear DVD blue ray,I am just saying,I better keep my mouth shut.

I hope this is ok to post.

This is the first video I've seen where they show mostly the black colored SRT, and with the lights on.

Both LED strips are on, but so are the headlights as Scott mentioned. I was hoping the HIDs would be off

$30,000 - $40,000 worth of mods which would put this Jeep into the 1000HP range (or a fuel efficient car, maybe 2, lol), makes this Jeep a no-brainer type bargain over the others... The rich are throwing money away, to each their own I guess.

On a side note, the Porsche exhaust does sound really nice...
