Re: Track Tested Video: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 vs 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Wouldn't putting the two vehicles on a full course track and comparing their lap times be more indicative of the better performer?

Re: Track Tested Video: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 vs 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

I watched that and saw it quite pointless.

I also think they tagged the limiter in the gearchanges during the SRT's quarter mile run..... (assuming the video'd run was used for times).

Re: Track Tested Video: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 vs 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

much better times can be had with an experienced 2012 SRT driver...sub 13 second runs. I bet the new owners figure it out real quick and are sub 13 second right away...

SOMETHING they couldnt do in the 2006-2010

If thats the case why aren't Jeep telling these journalist testers when they hand them the keys to the test vehicles?

nah there were a handful of sub 13 second stock runs in positive DA. i believe 12.8 was the quickest.

still, ill be very happy to see the wk2 do that routinely in the wild and hopefully in the mags come some cooler weather (im sure well be seeing a 3 or 4 way performance SUV comparo from each soon enough)

none I have seen without a tune and cai.....that really doesnt mean anything though. The 1/4 mile racing is a serious bore!

Re: Track Tested Video: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 vs 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

1/4 mile racing is to American car's what the NFL is to sports. It's ours. It just so happens that the red light to red light street performance along with 1/4 mile racing is what gave WK1 such a great reputation and cult following. Without that, not one of you first timers would even be here discussing WK2 as there almost wasn't one. That being said, nobody and I mean NOBODY wants to see a successful stellar review and product launch on this platform more than us faithful cult followers. I promise you Boston that you will be at a light and some douche with a Camaro or Mustang will yank your chain, and just like a dog on a leash you will drag his ass all the way to the next red light where he will sit just off your bumper like a good obedient pet and you can smile wide and proud knowing you have shown him his master..... while on your way to a road course track day. No rudeness meant here, but until you accomplish that for the first time in your 5,000lb plus brick, you just won't get it. Once you do though, it'll be an awakening. In my opinion.

I agree Scott, put this in the hands of a WK1 owner track addict and see what his knowledge can do for a real test!!! What was reported on the 392 Chally's time's? Wasn't it 13 flat or 13.1 last winter before actual owner's got their hands on one. An LX forum member and I went head to head many times in Woodburn and he consistently laid down mid 12's bone stock on street tires, and that was in terrible humid hot west coast air. His times were rock solid consistent too, a huge plus to this 392.

Re: Track Tested Video: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 vs 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

tugboatchad, with all due respect, I may try the 1/4 mile strip, once or twice, but real, door to door racing is done on a track not on a public road......

Re: Track Tested Video: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 vs 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

I wasnt talking 1/4 mile times from light to light. Hahahaha!! As stated, once you own yours you will have the same experience which doesnt necessarily mean sanctioned type speeds some public roads do have a 50+ mph speed limit at the change of a light. Know though that when at a drag strip, there is much to be enjoyed seeing the "fast" cars get in a different staging lane to avoid getting beat by an suv. I should also be clear in saying that I meant you might "get it" as far as our attraction to 1/4 mile, not that you will or should participate in actual drag racing.
