Some of us want it all. Speed, handling, AWD and to be able to tow things. The SRT is perfect for all of the above. It's hard to find that all in one package. Ford scrapped the SVT Soprt Trac Adrenaline and all the others are way too expensive to own, let alone modify.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

I think they need to make the SRT8 more offroad performance oriented. Like a Jeep svt raptor.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

I think you're kinda missing the point of the SRT. Jeep already makes plenty of off-road capable vehicles.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

Absolutely horrible.

Anyone have a rough guess as to the price of the 2012 SRT8??

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

I would say the new SRT8 will start anywhere at 50-60K depending on options

Disagree.

Much like the 06-10 the new SRT will start very close to the base Overland price. I would think around $43-44K, fully loaded, $50K

Agreed, Last I checked the Overland was always the most expensive trim level (which doesnt make sense to me).
