Talking So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

new 8 speed tranny with a taller first gear.....faster shifting.....launch control


Will it see low 4's 0-60 and high 12's in the quarter?


hmmmm.....

I bet you know something we don't

I seem to recall you saying you drove a 2014 - was it an SRT? If so, what did the EVIC tell you?

Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

If the '14s involve two shifts to get to 60, wouldnt first gear be shorter than the old 5spd tranny? The new tranny should buy time across the board with what they have been saying. 1-2 tenths 0-60 and 3-4 tenths in the quarter.....Im guessing and hoping.
I think launch control will help all the magazine hotshots get more consistent 0-60 times which will help the Jeep SRT image as well.

Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

very true Hammer and a point I was wanting to make. The extra shiftgetting to 60 will seem to slow this beast down when it comes to 60 mph times. BUt it will launch harder than the 12-13's out of the box! Also the launch control will keep EVERYONE consistent and is idiot proof! So from a newb to veteran...all the same times! Where the 8 speed will really shine is in the 1/4 mile and on up to 165-175 mph...where the 1st gen really died and was left in the dust by many imports etc.

Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

I think I heard that 0-60 is about the same due to an extra shift in the new tranny. It's the 45-75 that is dramatically improved. Launch control should help get the most out of it each time, however.

Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

key word Rizzuto is "about" IMHO....I think they didnt release the performance times because this is an early launch and thye were still building 13's for delivery and sale. When the reviews come out....I think most will be wowed. But the biggy will be when these hit the streets and just like the 12-13's....they will get faster with more miles.
Also...most are forgetting the rev match feature of the 8 speed tranny.....thats a HUGE performance gain

It's going to be fun - I try not to think about it too much though so I can actually get a little bit of sleep!

Re: So....just how fast you think this new 14' Jeep SRT really is?

I will probably be banned for this....... but.......

Although the 2014 may be one of the fastest SUVs out there, keep in mind it is still a truck and not an agile corner carving sports car.......

Disclosure, I own a 2012 Jeep SRT8 and I am totally in love with it.......(I also own a racecar for the carving craving)....

P.S. I maybe slightly jealeous of the 8-speed tranny on the '14..... congrats to all the lucky people who have one on order.....

Very true, but it sure as hell will be fun for daily driving.

(If I really want to go fast in the turns on the track I will take the Camaro out... she's certainly no Porsche, but I've got her handling pretty well )
