OK, my cam only 6.1 did low 12's. When they came out with this in 06 it was the best thing out there and this time their behind the 8 ball, but I'm sure the leather will be nice! Whatever!

the 6.4 is different from the 6.1....besides larger displacement. The power band has shifted and more usable. I believe the Challenger 6.4's are running low 12's STOCK in the 1/4. The last gen Jeep SRT with its traction was faster than the LX based SRT's...because of the traction. Thats why the excitement for performance. Plus the elsd on the 3.70 rearend and wider 20x10 wheels all around.

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

I think your all depending too much on the fact that the last WK SRT was so bad ass. I just think that if BMW is putting out a 555hp X5, then they should have atleast came a little closer to that.

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

I'm hoping that I see this things and drop my drawers in amazement, but I don't know after some of the things I'm seeing. The Charger SRT got a body lift, but it doesn't look all that good, and the Challenger didn't get crap body wise worth talking about, and the recent pics of the Jeep look like a churched up Overland with the front and rear bumpers covered. I'll be the first to call myself out if I like it but I know how I felt when I turned the corner in 05 at the Boston auto show and saw the WK SRT8 for the first time and it's gonna be hard to beat that, but it's possible.

When the BMW X5 is also thousands of dollars more, it is a little different pal. Get your cost to specs ratio together!

Agreed. Why not go bigger knowing this is out there.
I guess it comes down to Dollars and cents in the long run.

I'm glad they didnt' think like this in 2005 when they blew away the 100K+ Cayenne Turbo.

What he said ... You can put the difference that is cost to buy an X5M into simple mods or even heavy mods and still wont be equivalent to that price and blow away the X5M by a mile

My only problem with that engine is the fact that it is 6.4L and can only put out 475 HP when other manufacturers are able to produce better results

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

its not about trying to get more than 555 hp X5M....for one thing...there is NO mass producable engine from ChryCo that can overcome those numbers. The 6.4 will be the engine in all SRT vehicles....besides the Viper. Really the X5M is not one of the Jeeps competitors becasue they cost $30+ more....not is the Cayenne at $100k+. Those at ultra-high performance ultra luxury vehicles. This is a Grand Cherokee on JUICE.....around $50K...there will be nothing that will compete.
