Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

Curious to see how it looks as well as actual performance.

I agree that $50k vs $90-100k is a big difference. However, $50k vs. $73k for an X5 50i with Dinan ecu tune makes for a closer comparison.

I am rooting for the Grand Cherokee though. Really like the idea of a non-luxury brand with what promises to be excellent comfort, quiet ride, and great performance.

GC SRT8 - $50k guess
6.4 liter/5-speed
470 HP/470 torques
4,900 lbs guess
0-60 ??

X5 50i - $70k
4.4 liter twin turbo with 9.5 psi boost/8-speed
400 HP/450 torques
5,379 lbs
0-60 5.3 sec

X5 50i with Dinan ecu tune - $73k
4.4 liter twin turbo with 14 psi boost/8-speed
495 HP/570 torques!
5,379 lbs
0-60 ??

X5M - $93k
4.4 liter twin turbo/5-speed
555 HP/500 torques
5,379 lbs
0-60 4.5 sec

P.S. What's your guess on new Grand Cherokee SRT8 0-60? How about 4.8 sec?

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

I highly doubt the SRT8 6.4L Hemi will push the new Grand Cherokee 0-60mph in less than 5sec, I'd say 5.5sec. New G.C. platform is way too heavy. '11 5.7L V8 Hemi Laredo 360hp bone-stock does 60mph in 8.2... just as fast as the '98 5.2L with only 220hp.

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

Nah, under 5's with ease.

The Jeep engineers will have focussed on getting a great 0-60 time, by way of torque delivery and gearing, if only to impress journoulists and pimple faced kids

That type of thinking is commonplace, even if it can sometimes be at the expence of performance elsewhere within an uncommonly timed speed range.

5.5 sec's 0-60?? That's probably going to be pretty close*

*with driver, 3 passengers and 4 sets of golf clubs in the hatch.


Believe me, the WK2 SRT8 is going to out perform the 1st gen - or they would have never brought it out.

Ok I'll agree to disagree for now with everyone else, but 5.5 0-60? I know it'll be faster than that

We know Milous......or at least some of us.

Off the record though. In your opinion. Does she look like more of a beast than the WK SRT8?

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

Everyone.. I do work at the source, I have seeing the vehicle twice and I've heard test engineering team and everything points out to just matching the older SRT8. Added platform weight has been a big constrain/concerned from what I've heard, hence the bigger displacement, added torque/hp and tweaking of electronic management unit. 5sec is quick enough for the mass the vehicle has. Roadntruck recently released "spied pics" but don't even get close to what I've seeing first hand, that's just a 'mule' built with lots of spare parts, totally unreliable source. Actual SRT8 will get your mouth watering when you see it. It won't turn heads but rather snap necks. I plan on purchasing one myself.
