Re: Whats your take on the trans with this diesel?

The ECO button defaulting to on is for EPA testing. If it defaults to on, they don't turn it off for the testing. If it defaults to off or what was last set, they don't turn it on for testing.

Re: 2014 srt trade in value

$53k is $11k off what you paid new (according to what you've said). 11k out of 64k is ~17% - typically when you drive off the lot you take a 20-25% hit. Add in the vehicle is close to a year old, has...

Re: A Cherokee SRT4 possibly in the works?

I think a supercharged V6 SRT6 Cherokee would make sense, both as a powertrain, and as a model.

The Grand Cherokee SRT8 is flat out expensive. No two ways about it - it's playing in the same...

Re: GC Diesel vs. V6 vs. V8 vs. Touareg TDI

The low end torque will be great for puttering around town. But the engine redlines a LOT sooner, so you have a very narrow powerband, meaning it will have to shift MORE, not less.

The V6 has a...

Re: GC Diesel vs. V6 vs. V8 vs. Touareg TDI

I think those expecting Hemi-like levels of performance out of the CRD will be very disappointed. I'd expect it to be right smack in the middle of the V6 and V8 in terms of performance.
