Re: 707-hp GC coming (in case 475 hp isn't enough)

My gut feel is that the Track Hawk (w/ the Hellcat) should beat the competition. Though let's see what the final product looks like including curb weight and gearing. Both will certainly have an...

Re: 707-hp GC coming (in case 475 hp isn't enough)

The current SRT does compete with the existing X5M, Cayenne and GL63 AMG but it's behind all in overall performance. I suspect the gap will widen if used at higher altitude locations which is...

Re: 707-hp GC coming (in case 475 hp isn't enough)

At $80k, that's a bargain for the potential performance of 700 (ish) HP under the bonnet. Now it's a question of production rate and ADM. If pushed to $100k, outside of the loyalist, it might be...

Re: 2015 JGC 5.7 Top End?

As stated by others, I would be concerned about the tires, suspension and brakes could handle a potential top speed. It's the "what if" you had to make a quick transition vs. pointing straight and...

Re: About to be a new owner, 2015 Summit

OK, so now to migrate away from the BMW talk (though it's one of my favorite brands).

Yesterday I took delivery of a 2015 JGC Summit w/ Hemi. Colors are black on black. This is odd for me as I...

Very true. I opted for the V8, not for practical reasons, rather emotional. The majority of the time the V6 would be more than enough for DD. It's those times when traveling on the...

Re: Features in the Advanced Tech Pkg, can they be disabled?

I would agree. This is one compelling reason to buy the Overland. Though it would be nice to have the Summit or HA trim without the Advanced Tech Pkg.
