Everyone knows the challenger has been in the wild doing less than a 13 second 1/4 mile right? like 12.5????? and the jeep can keep up wit it consistently and bbeat it most of the time......
They were talking 0-60 not 1/4 mile.

The engineer clearly says that the new challenger MAY be faster GIVEN THE PROPER LAUNCH but the jeep will consistently be king. So what if it added 500 lbs...we'll have a better crafted vehicle than the WK1 (supposedly) with more advanced technology (eLSD FTW). So what it's been "estimated" at a 4.8s 0-60...its still faster than most things you'll encounter on the road. I could have had a 2010 at any time...but I chose to get the next-gen model because it truly is the next step for the SRT Jeep. Personally...I cant wait to get my hands on my 2012!
And what do you think the 2006-10 was built for? I run mine at the track all the time. Most will never go to one anyway, it's like off roading in any other SUV

haha, you're 100% correct, excuse me, I'm posting while working.

FYI, moot to us Aussies is a lady's vagina. You know, it's a slightly nicer way of saying ****, but will still get you slapped.

And we spell the round rubber things tyres, not tires, but I always try and accomodate US spelling.

Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-watch and listen

And sorry but if it beats the Challenger 0-60 it will likely also beat it (by a similar margin) in the 1/4 mile. I say this because at higher speeds the Jeep's weight is less of an issue, once momentum kicks in. The AWD being on for those 12 seconds ("or less..." ) is surely going to help make up the difference..

Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-watch and listen

Why is the 1/4 mile number so important to you guys?
Is it because you can race from stoplight to stoplight or is there another reason?

Nice to see the SRT GC do something other than GO STRAIGHT.

I like the part at 3:40

Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-watch and listen

HONESTLY!!! (yes caps) Who cares if the Jeep is faster than the WK SRT8 or the Chally or whatever???? We are talking tenths of a second.

And dont give me the crap about tenths matter because 90% of owners DO NOT and WILL NOT race their trucks. They just want to be street kings lol (Keanu Reeves)

As anyone SHOULD KNOW there will ALWAYS be a faster "something" out there for less or more $! The point or reason to buy the SRT8 Jeep is more about the WHOLE PACKAGE! If you need to be "the" street king, go get a Hyabussa or Twin Turbo Ford GT!

I just cant get over people hating on its identical performance! God forbid it didnt get a whole second faster in the 1/4 and 0-60 under 4??? LOL like really people. They didn't make this thing to be the fastest thing on the street sheeesshh! They could have, sure, they could have just cancelled the SRT8 and made the Viper ACR X Get that, then youd have the fastest thing on the street. This Jeep will devour 90% of anything you encounter. With some mods maybe more like 95%!

I seriously think some people have lost their sanity when it comes to the SRT8s criticism!

If you disagree, move over to a poorer country in Africa/Europe and ride around in an Isuzu or Yugo or even a Fiat something tiny and crappy and then come back. I think you're mindset and appreciation for what it is will be changed

Re: New 2012 Jeep SRT8 track vid-watch and listen

yeah anthony...I think some have missed the point that its not all about 0-60 an straight line performance anymore...BUT...those that want straightline, 1/4 mile performance can still have that. This is a better...ALL AROUND....vehicle than the 1st gen. Fact
