My wife's jeep was delivered Wednesday. I haven't driven it much, but, her initial impression was very similar to the reviews that have been posted to this site. The car looks fantastic and we believe that the SRT team has delivered, as expected. Hats off to them!
So far (2-3 days) this vehicle has exceed our expectations and is exactly what we were looking for.
Just a few quick notes:
We were planning a few exterior mods (color match chrome tail, etc.), but now we think that she'll only get tint for the front windows.
From a few angles, the center of the vehicle (the door area, on both sides) looks like the car is sitting a little high. I think I would like a slightly lower stance. I'll try to take a picture.
The car sounds AMAZING when accelerating on the highway. It is hard to describe, but my wife flew past me on the highway and it kind of sounded like a deep light saber swipe... You also hear the ticking that Chrysler had in the autoshow video, which also sounds great in my opinion.
Driving is solid and to us the car is just as steady, smooth, quiet, etc. at 20 mph as 120mph. This may take some time to get used to for some of the current wk1 SRT8 drivers. for me it isn't a natural experience. I've acclerated and can see the immediate increase in speed by how fast things were moving around me, but you don't really feel it inside. I gave an S6 a taste for a moment. The jeep crushed and I can tell by how quickly I passed the S6 that I was moving quickly, but couldn't really feel it. I expected my neck to snap back and the car to lean a little. I could tell by the guys face that he was amazed.
There is also a lot of controls and indicators to get used to (like a green racing flag that lights up from time to time)
more to come... Hopefully mine will arrive before Christmas!
