Roger. That particular SRT was used for Aussie motoring journalists to review. I doubt whether it was run in at that time. Plus I'm sure the guy was just having fun in it rather than seriously focusing upon a quarter mile time.

I follow that auto web-site Down Under and those journalists.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT vs Overland: Dragway Face-Off

Most likely they used a unbroken in car with 91 RON fuel. For some reason aussie motoring journos they never seem to get close to the potential figures of most cars, when they test them.

Just read that another journalist from another Aussie Auto site did a 13.4 in the same SRT (HEM 164). So the Journalist in this video with his 14.1 was asleep

That car (HEM164) has been around for ages and flogged by every journo that gets his hands on it.
