Re: The new Sport SUV Value Leader: The ML550
lol damn we have some babies here.
When i see something like that, all i see is someone lighting a fire under the arse of SRT. Which in turn mean the consumer gets a better product.
to add if you build a ML550 with everything the SRT comes with standard you are at 80g.

sooo after $21980, you still dont have 6 piston brembos and you look like every other suburban mother taking their child to school.
on the subject of the Range Rover, when the new Sport comes out which is expected to be a 2015 model it will be a beast...in the straight aways.
If you want to compare the SRT to anything, only thing you can compare it to is the 90-150g AMG, M and Turbo. With the new 6.2 SC model and updated interior id say you have the best "entry" level performance SUV in front of you.
If i repeated anything said, sorry i got tried of reading 4th graders cry.
