So, my '10 SRT already has a bad Catalytic converter and is in the shop getting replaced. So I went to the SM who I have referred a couple SRT orders to and asked if he could hook me up with a ride. He had a couple of SRT Challengers (6.1s) that I tried to get him to give up, but he said, why don't you try the new GC.
So he pulls up in this:
Brand Spankin new. 0 hours, 7 miles!
My Son Samuel likes the Pano roof and air suspension. He also thinks it sounds louder than my SRT. Doubtful.
My initial opinion is that is sure is nice. Peppy, but that's about it. Theres a pretty long hesitation from flooring it till it gets up and goes.
It sounds very solid and has a great tight feel to it. Putting a car seat in, it is obvious it's got more room in the back.
I like everything about it, except the power. I'm really going to have trouble not having something with 400+ HP. So I better start saving so I can afford the $70K supercharged SRT8 in 2014.
Ok...I can do with non supercharged, but need 7 speeds at least and new head unit.
All in all, makes sense why I see TONS of these on the road. Jeep makes a nice SUV for the masses!
