Back in a SRT...again!
 
So I've gone from this:

to my 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited with this:

2013 Vapor Edition :thumbsup:


Edit: YES, I know the passenger side badging is wrong, the new badges are already on order and on the way

Welcome to the fold. I'll be curious to see how you compare the SRT to the Cayenne. I had an '04 CTT and find the SRT to be 95% of the CTT at half the price.

Mine was a 06 CTTS, great car and tons of fun to drive, however missed some of the creature comforts that I have in my 2011 GC Limited (remote start, proper nav, modern interior, decreased maintenance costs- CTTS front brake job alone is ~$1500 in parts ALONE, I prefer the trans from the SRT8 more). I also got 2 free oil changes per year from the dealer for life (bonus versus the Cayenne oil change since its $300 per change at every 10k miles) and 50k mile wheel warranty thrown in.

I do like the variable steering on the Cayennes however the WK2 SRT8 drives completely differently than both the CTTS and the WK2 Limited. Feels almost like my Vette, every little input translates to steering on the SRT8. I do love the alcantera headliner, adjustable air suspension, and 4LO with diff lock on the CTTS.

I have yet to get on the skinny pedal so can't comment on the power between the Turbo S and the WK2 SRT8 but know the turbos made the CTTS scary fast 520hp, 500+ftlbs, so will be interested in adding a supercharger/turbo to the SRT8 at some point. Also, might look into doing an alcantera headliner at some point but other wise loving my Vapor!
