I find it hard to believe on the skidpad the WKII pulls less g's. Chrysler rates it at .90

Cool comparo. But until they go at it side by side I dont read too far into this ;)

Those reviews vary so much and there are also a lot of politics involved with those reviews and the magz. The top speeds are always limited to "155" but thats not real deal, little tune and its well beyond that. And Im pretty sure the skidpad #s are as well because the WK SRT put down .9Gs on pad. Cool link tho :)

so they tested one in 2010 and the 2012 just recently? Thats lame. The conditions could be the exact opposite........

Lame test

Lame test

That's why times are corrected for altitude and temperature so that comparisons can be made.

But you're all right that the best comparisons are side by side. Then again, they're slight variances between the same models.

Not only does it have to do with the current conditions, but also the driver. No driver is the same....getting the quickest time isn't just about slamming the pedal to the floor, every car has a sweet spot that most people do not know how to hit.

In the C&D's first Test of the WK SRT/8 the 2006 was compared to the Trailblazer SS and 'lost'.

The numbers back then were slightly different than the '10 but still better than the new WK2's latest test (except braking):

0-60: 4.5
0-100: 12.0
0-130: 24.0
1/4: 13.2 @104

300ft Skidpad: .88g
70-0: 178ft
Top Speed: 155 (mfr est)

I'm amazed at how close the new one is to the old one. It's so heavy!
