OK, let me say that yes srt8's are quick. Not sure that I agree w/peeps that the jeep is quickest, it's quicker on the launch but will lose out after the 1/8th mile. All of them can get to about 12.8/12.7 w/the predator and the usual mods. As for the gas mileage, please has anyone looked at what our trucks get....ok I can say this because I own one of those 10 second srt8's and pull it around with my 5.7hemi truck...

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

The SRT-8 Grand Cherokee is the quickest V8 powered vehicle Ma Mopar has ever made.

420hp and AWD make a great team...

Only the Viper-powered vehicles are quicker...

Now, top-end wise, the Jeep's poor aero limit its top speed, so the Ram may out run it, but 0-60??? No way...

First hand experience with that. The Jeep means business...

FYI, the GC SRT-8 is quicker than both the Porsche Cayanne and the BMW X5... Mad props the the Jeep/SRT team on that one! Can't wait for the newer version with the 6.4L!

Oh, did I let that slip...?

I had sort of the same story except i was on the bike quick back ground I have a 90 suzuki GSXR 1100 (1127 oil cooled bike) its got a nice body but its an older bike I had a younger guy roll up on me in his srt challenger doing around 30-40 mph(speedo on the bike is less then correct) I looked because I always do on a bike i make sure they see me getting hit by a car isn't fun. Anyways him and his gf look and he laughs and revs, I was a bit puzzled as if it was directed at me so if dropped a gear and rev'd back he mashed it to the floor and took off they are quick cars but the race lasted about 3 seconds as i past him on the rear tire and the next set of lights I gave him the thumbs up and smiled he was not so happy. not sure what he expected 425 hp at 4000# and my bike at the wheel 120hp and 650# with my fat ass on it. sorry to jack the thread I just think some guys expect more from stock.

I think more people expect their vehicle to stand up to a crotch rocket. A corvette won't even touch a newer crotch rocket, they're fast.

totally depends on the bike, what CC it is, what gearing it has, rider experience, and overall conditions, a pickup truck would beat me in the rain or cold conditions as im not suicidal.
