Re: 2014 SRT Grand Cherokee REVEALED

I'm very happy so far. I'll be eager to see road tests. My only concern now is that the 8 speed may be geared for fuel economy rather than performance and of course tuning. Regardless, I see myself...

Re: 2014 SRT Grand Cherokee REVEALED

How many SECONDS did they shave off the quarter? Are you new to performance vehicles ? Shaving off 3 to 5 tenths of a second will be significant.

Re: The new Sport SUV Value Leader: The ML550

Sure tuning is going to be more expensive but it will also be far more effective.

MHP got gains of 170hp and 300lb ft of torque from a tune on a new benz tt v8. Sure this tune is 3k but It...

Re: The new Sport SUV Value Leader: The ML550

It turns out that the 2013 ML550 is actually optioned differently than the tested 2012.

The agility suspension is now standard, probably removing the need to add any options packages to equal...

Re: Motortrend compares the 2006 Jeep SRT to the 2012 Jeep SRT

Re: Motortrend compares the 2006 Jeep SRT to the 2012 Jeep SRT

having owned a 5.9 and now a WK1 I know there is no way in hell that the 5.9 either brakes as quickly from 60 or can run through a slalom as quickly. something is off with these numbers.

Ive been on there since August of 06.

How does that not mean anything? You will see plenty of WK2s running 13.3-14.0 as well. DA and heatsoak guarantee that

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I think youre giving them way too much credit. The $55k was probably a float to see if they could get away with it.
