Best Daily Driver Ever?
 
For the money ~$40k, is there a better (performance wise) and more functional vehicle for a daily driver than the Jeep SRT8 for the continental US?

Based on all of my research the answer is no, so I am keeping my Jeep.:D
Hopefully, I will just "add" the 911 Turbo next year:D.

I love knowing, even with a car seat and a stroller in the back, at a stop light I will still win every time (at least in Toledo,OH).

Mines my Daily Driver. I'm thinking of buying an Old Beater because I'm racking up in mileage. I found a 80's Volkswagen Rabbit.

I hear you there!! The GC SRT-8 will pass everything BUT a gas station...

Chinese Proverb: If you fill up a SRT8 while the engine is running (;)), does it ever actually fill up???

There's always compromises to make. For the Jeep SRT8 it's MPGs. Performance wise you're looking at what a Mustang GT? Camaro SS? Nissan 370Z? Genesis Coupe V6? Practically speaking, all of those options don't have the cargo, higher vantage point (driving), AWD and badass styling.

A TBSS isn't even a production vehicle anymore so that's an option but the MPGs are the same!!

IMO, the next best option is a WK2 HEMI. Better MPG, still has some oomph and is way nicer!

If overall operating costs are considered then the Audi S4 and BMW 335xi are in the same ballpark, but they do not have the capabilities (i.e. towing & cargo space) of the Jeep.

I would rather have a 5.7 ltd than a TBSS any day.
