550 hp
 
No Jeep content...but lots of flat corning and amazing sounds from an SUV...

Always liked the looks of the Rover Sports. 550 HP makes it a wee bit more sexy.

550hp is nice, but at the end of the day, it's still a Land Rover. Great for this year, next and maybe the year after but 10 years from now?

Have an 06 lr4 in the garage and it functions and runs great. oil changes, tires, control arm bushings are all its needed. All usual maintenance. The quality has really improved since the discovery days.

My 01 Disco has 240,000 miles on it - gas, oil, pads...
My 10 LR4 has 80,000 miles on it - gas, oil, pads...

I had an 06 SRT8, bought the jeep for the wife...was going to wait for the Hellcat but not coming for sometime...and at the time Rover did not have a 550hp beast out...

Who cares? Explorer with 550 hp

Go slobber on the lr/rr forums. We've heard this way too much

My wife's boss has an lr4 and every window, sunroof...piece of glass leaks water..even when not raining.....lol. electrical problems by the thousands.....they have improved none.

Some have problems true..

Lots of bad jeeps too, but for the same reason we buy em.

Fun vehicles. But I digress not the forum thread for discussing reliability of either.

Agreed. Don't care about it, and yes I can afford it.

However, I have high hopes for the next gen Jeep. SRT better step it up. 600HP or bust!

In a diesel would be some killer torque

I wear camo when I hunt, that's it.
Let's leave the diesel SRT for Duck Dynasty. I want gasoline greatness.
