They even had an article in the local newspaper about the show since most of it was filmed locally.

Re: Top Gear features the srt8!

I realize that it's not a serious comparison anyway, but a couple things stuck out -

#1 - each of the other two were the WORST at something or had significant issues. The Jeep was middle of the pack or best at everything except the climb up the mountain
#2 - on that point, they chose a vehicle that has no business going up a snowy mountain - the tires alone are a huge disadvantage.. which brings me to...
#3 - if they would have used, say, a Hemi Overland, it would have been worst at the "track" but probably tops in every other test. I'd be willing to bet that with a decent set of tires, it would have bested the RR on that last mountain climb..

Re: Top Gear features the srt8!

Thought I heard they put snow tires on them, but my first thought was we have 3 wheel drive really to their 4 wheel. I totally agree on the overland thought
