Re: Car and Driver Test Results 2012 vs 2010

Guys, we all know the new Jeep is slower. Let's move on. It's bigger, heavier, what did you think was going to happen? Can't cheat physics.I bet it rides nice though.

On the track the Jeep absolutely wasted the Trailblazer (by more than 1 second 0-60 and by 2.6 seconds 0-100!).

In a comparison with a Rover they also complained about the low grade interior and lack of rear seat room. Now that both have been addressed they grouse about the SRT not being too nice and not "raw" enough. Figure it out guys which is it?

Re: Car and Driver Test Results 2012 vs 2010

Soooooo, now I gotta find a way to get the 2012 SRT8 engine, hood, front seats, carbon fiber trim, steering wheel, and Brembos swapped into my WK2 or a 2010 SRT8.

Any takers?

yes



If you do a little research...the gen1 SRT8 varied so much in tests and track runs it wasnt even funny. Ive seen the gen1 run 14.0 in the 1/4. But as I quoted a month or so ago I was told and saw from an excellent source...the 2012 ran under 13.0

Re: Car and Driver Test Results 2012 vs 2010

Here are my first 4 runs on my 2010 SRT8 with about 6,000 miles.
These were done Bone Stock and also done with a Predator CAI 91 tune. No difference.
13.3 consistently, Speed at 1/4 mile is 101 mph consistently.
Everything I have seen on WK2 SRT8 has it a bit quicker and faster through the traps.
These times above were also done in negative DA.
The only real and true test is a Stock WK1 with more than 10K miles on it, vs a WK2 with more than 10K miles on it run at the same time, same track and then switching lanes.
Since I don't see this ever happening, especially with getting driver weight the same, fuel levels the same and both jeeps their with engines fully broken in.
However, by my numbers, vs the C&D numbers, this WK2 is faster than my 2010 stock SRT8.

I don't think you'll find anyone here that will disagree with that, but it's 5 years later. When it came out it was pretty much the only review and it was disappointing. Looking back it's kind of funny how wrong they got it.
