That thing walked the Jeep! It was close but had 40hp on the Jeep with a FI set up. Not sure of the price tag but I think the 8 speed would make it a better race.

The range rover is more for offroad than the SRT as that is more street performance. I would think an Overland Summit would of been better choice to do the test.

Just finished watching it and it was an alright episode I can't believe the range had that many issues in a short amount of time.

Exactly what I was thinking - SRT will NEVER beat the Range Rover in that uphill snow packed conditions. On a flat tarmac, however, it'll be the other way around.

Plus I can't see really what kind of "Snow tire" you could get on a low profile tire for the SRT compared to the RR or Caddy.. I don't even think the SRT has QL does it?

So either way, the SRT or Overland Summit would of still lost the drag race to the RR when it has about 500hp and supercharged. I think the sand it would of still won and had a better chance at the snow competition. Just kind of think poorly done.

Of course Tanner won the race he had 40hp and -500lbs advantage. That air suspension and leaking sunroof really didn't surprise me

I got to watch this last night and it seemed like the SRT did pretty well. I can attest that Snow mode going up snowy hills is a waste. Especially starting on a snowy hill. I've found Sand/Mud mode to be the most affective, but I don't believe the SRT has that. Snow mode will just cause you to dig a giant hole.

snow mode in the SRT switches the split to 50/50 front to rear and changes some of the vehicle dynamics to handle snow. That being said....the 2ft of soft powder in the show...and the lack of driver...(rutledge sucks) Of course the RR is gonna beat the SRT in a 1/4 mile race...especially with tanner in the RR and Rutledge in the SRT.
