Re: Robb Report no.9 Car of The Year

Looks like they messed up their image link. The image of the steering wheel clearly shows a different shifter which I would suspect looks like yours?

The dial and number pad on the left remind me of something but I can't put my finger on it. Euro I believe.

Re: Robb Report no.9 Car of The Year

Specifications:
Top speed 160 mph (limited)???? - I thought I read somewhere that Gilles said that there is no speed limiter (sp) on the SRT8 ... that was a rumor that started at the NY Auto Show.

anyone confirm or am i imagining things.....

Re: Robb Report no.9 Car of The Year

Jeep is limited to @ 160 mph to protect the drive train/transfer case/all wheel drive system. That's fast enough isn't it?

Re: Robb Report no.9 Car of The Year

SRTs are not speed governed. That's straight out of the CEOs mouth. Also, I think Speed Channel did a SRT special and they hit 162mph with a WK2 SRT8 on the autobahn. So there is video proof that it goes faster than 160mph.
