Re: SRT10 coming?

I think I can speak for all (or almost all) WK1 SRT8 owners.

We feel "ripped off" paying $60k+ for a vehicle (WK2 SRT8) that is not "significantly" faster than our current Jeep.

If the WK2 supercharged has a 0-60mph in 3.9 or less and a mid 12 second quarter mile I can see most hold out WK1 owners upgrading, myself included.

If that special edition is going to have a sticker-price of +70K, I wouldn't bet on it.

the speed thing has been beat to death.......its a tenth of a second slower in the 1/4 mile for 100x the Jeep.....all reviews say that. And...Im sure it will be faster once it hits the streets...as I have seen. I would say the special edition will add a significant amount of $$$$ to the bottom line.

Maybe this is because SRT botched the 1 thing the "enthusiasts" bought the WK1 SRT for, performance. Otherwise we would have bought a TBSS or a BMW X5.

its a .1 slower 1/4 mile(as tested by rag mags)...but handles better? Not really that bad IMO. Its more/better balanced. My point is...."enthusiasts" dont 1/4 mile race on a daily basis. This SRT will be 1000x better than the 1st gen. all around. Lets compare it to a basketball players....would you rather have nate Robinson...who won the dunk contest and is pretty much one dimensional....or Kobe Bryant...the best all around player in the game?(just examples)

Re: SRT10 coming?

The WK2 SRT was a disappointment for sure. The enthusiasts that are buying them want to dominate at the stoplights. Other than raw torque and AWD there's no reason to even make the truck. If you attempt to open track the thing you will go broke buying rotors, pads, fuel and more than likely trannies. The truck should focus on straight line performance and to make more people happy it should be able to tow.

It should take the minimalist approach... less weight, less lux parts, and more raw performance without some ridiculous base price.

So true! I thought the Durango was awesome until I followed one.

It's too bad you think it's such a dissappointment.
It's as fast as the wk1 straightline and faster in the corners, with a much better daily livability.

If you're buying this SuperSUV as solely a performance vehicle, your buying the wrong car. You can get alot more for a lot less elsewhere.
IF you don't need the all weather performance or the space of an SUV for daily driving, why are you buying a big, heavy SUV with horrible gas mileage?
Most likely, it's your daily driver that you want it to do everything in one package. And since it matches the already quick wk1 SRT8 (Or damn close) and improves on EVERY other aspect. How can it be dissappointing?

Oh yea.....back to the price, huh?
