WK SRT8
Infiniti FX50 (not near as sporty though)
RR Sport Supercharged (would have to buy used because of depreciation)

Re: SUV Alternatives to the WK2 SRT8 Jeep?

Yeah the Cayenne would have to be like 3+ years used to get for the same deal as the Wk2 Srt8, Rover supercharged 2 years used. Infiniti FX I wouldn't even consider because I don't like the styling of their latest model.

Now if you're comparing new vs new, nothing beats it, IMO.

Re: SUV Alternatives to the WK2 SRT8 Jeep?

Of all the alternatives, I see the X5 as closest, but not in price. Even at its steep price, there is not anything close in performance and price together. JIMHO.

Re: SUV Alternatives to the WK2 SRT8 Jeep?

The more I think about it, there are no reasonable alternatives (powerful, SUV, AWD) out there that comes near the WK2 SRT8 for $55,000.
If I were in the market, my choice is clear. I envy you guys that are getting the beast.

Re: SUV Alternatives to the WK2 SRT8 Jeep?

Infiniti QX 56 (So ugly)
Toyota Land Cruiser (High Price Tag)
Lexus LX 570 (Ugly and overpriced)
Porsche Cayenne (I hate the new body style)
Acura MDX (I kind of like it)
Jeep GC WK2 SRT8 (Love it)
Infinity FX (Love it)
BMW X5 (Dont get me started, waste of money....its ugly as shit)
Land Rover Range Rover Sport (I Actually like these, lovin the body)
Land Rover LR4 (Same feelings as above)

Thats about it unless you start looking at the Cadillac, Lincoln, etc etc

Acura MDX (I kind of like it) Really? Ugly is an understatement
Jeep GC WK2 SRT8 (Love it) Love it - Agreed
Infinity FX (Love it) Not bad look, little too roundish for my taste, good performance
BMW X5 (Dont get me started, waste of money....its ugly as shit) Agreed with you, X5M is way too much also
Land Rover Range Rover Sport (I Actually like these, lovin the body) Slow, and over priced
Land Rover LR4 (Same feelings as above) Slow and too boxy

Thats about it unless you start looking at the Cadillac, Lincoln, etc etc
Just added my comments in bold.
