Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat...

IMO Dodge nailed it with the Hellcat. I have never been a fan of the challenger, but i do like this updated version for 2015. For $60k you get a brand new 10 second 1/4 mile car with a factory...

Re: If Ford ever did this, Jeep would be forced to up their QC

I always wanted a V10 Touareg..They were pretty rare and expensive, especially the maintenance from what i had read.

Re: Lowering The jeep

The one thing i dislike about my 14' 5.7 JGC is the handling and all that body roll. Has anybody done the mid level lowering springs on the factory shocks? Does it reduce some of the body roll?

Re: 2014 V8 is weak?

No, i was referring to the "older" 11-13' WK2's. The 5.7's with the 5 speed are listed as 6.9 0-60mph. I haven't seen these numbers in any real review for those models.

Re: 2014 V8 is weak?

Re: 2014 V8 is weak?

Don't listen to the v8 haters. The 5.7 has plenty of power for a true 4x4 SUV and it is faster then the v6. It never feels under powered. Now, the previous WK2 5.7 (11'-13') were not as fast from...
