whats faster? cherokee srt8 or dodge ram r/t ?
 
just curious in the market for a truck, and i like speed, while window shopping came across a used srt8 , whats the times for these beast, compared to an r/t or quad cab, the hp, is almost similar now a days, 390 in the ram, vs 425..

thanks, im sure i could figure out weight/hp ratios, etc, but then gearing is a factor, etc...

To the best of my understanding, the SRT8 is the faster vehicle. The Cherokee is an AWD! I will see if I can find some reliable, verifiable numbers for you!

Cherokee SRT8 has the benefit of the 6.1L engine and AWD, making it faster than the truck.

I've seen mildly modded GCSRT8's (intake and exhaust) run low 13's all day long at the track. Add a programmer and a few other tweaks and they are in the 12's easy.

They would be correct. If I'm not mistaken, the SRT8 Grand Cherokee is the quickest of all SRT8 offerings.

Yup that ^^^^ would be true.

All I can say is that when I went to Dodge's SRT Driving Class the Grand Cherokee's were the fastest of the SRT's except for the Viper. They were quickest in the drag racing. Loved the exhaust note they had over the other SRT's.

thanks people, wasn't sure of the weight differences, gearing, etc...

one thing to note the srt8 gets HORRIBLE gas mileage...

Yes, many people that can afford it aren't worried about gas!
