I was going to get one, but with the way I priced it compared to the TB SS, it was about 6G's more.....so I decided to go with the blazer....

Defiantly a bad ride though :)

Chrysler keeps churning out the hits. Just listen to it.

the front air dam seems a little big or something. its just kinda a little bit off. i would still drive one. i just don't really like a lot of the new jeep front ends.

on SpeedTV, the SRT guys where claiming 0-60 in under 5 seconds, wet or dry. that kills everything in the truck/suv segments. i think they are perty good looking. they put out 420 or so horsepower. very very nice.

definitely love the SRT-8 and the TB SS but who here has driven a 4.6IS X5? theyre bad and theyre quick 0-60 but wont beat an srt-8 but will kick its ass at 150+. but for half the money ill take the SRT-8. hopefully dads dealership gets one in soon, and if i can persuade him to keep it for himself ill post a write up.

There was a thread on 300c forums about them......they said the curb weight is something like 4800 lbs....AWD is great for 0-60 though.

i think jeep should stick to offroad performance, they can keep the hemi but if you want a high perfomace suv go with the SS TB. What do 4th gen f-bodys run 0-60? I think the srt-8's get 425hp but it might be less because of AWD.

The 300c srt8 has 5 more hp and is about 360rwhp so probably a good bit less than that.

i drove a standard 5.7 hemi jeep. thing felt like a pig. you could REALLY feel the weight in the thing...wasnt impressed by the "smaller" engine.

however you cant argue the 0-60 times. they will out 60' the other srt8 cars, but i think the mph is only like 101 vs 108 and the ET Is 3-4 tenths slower i believe.

Actually yea I can imagine that, and it does surprise people. Mines even still a GM product, can some of you guys seriously not remember that GM made Typhoon's and Syclones way back in the early 90's. We've had these fast SUV's for years.

Yeah seriously the the Syclone and Typhoon used to claim the same "0-60 in 4.6 in the rain" :)
