Reno is at 4,500 ft. elevation.

Everything except forced induction runs slower up there.

Well there you have it. I wouldnt have thought 4500 feet would knock almost 2 seconds off, but obviously it did. Funny how they didnt mention th elevation, funnier how I didnt know Reno was "up there" a bit. TG probably had an "unknown" doing the testing as well, but I guess he can mash the pedal for a time trial as good as any.

Most people don't take TG seriously,it's mindless and often pointless. Most European journalists laugh at them and that's the ones that bother even acknowledging them. The only good thing that TG have is their cinematography.

TG Ratings:
Jeep SRT rated 14/20
Porsche Cayenne Turbo rated 13/20
BMW X5M rated 8/20

Never mind the the 0-60, I bet the Jeep would get the fasted time around the TG Track.

All in all though, they did give it a good review.
