Default Fast Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

The January 2010 issue of Car & Driver rated 4 top high performance SUVs. The list included the BMX X5 M ($89,875; 555 hp); Land Rover Range ($82,345; 510 hp); Porsche Cayenne Turbo S ($140,480; 553 hp); and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT ($49,560; 420 hp).

Overall, the winner was the BMX X 5. The Jeep came in 3rd. They, however, loved "the wonderfully menacing sounds " of the Hemi and stated that "the call of the Hemi is hard to resist."

The Jeep's performance was as follows:

0-60 mph= 4.4 sec.
0-100 mph= 11.8 sec.
0-130 mph= 23.1 sec.
Top speed= 155 mph.
1/4 mile= 13.2 sec. @ 104 mph.

This confirms what I experienced at the SRT Experience. Because of its 4-wheel drive, the big Jeep is an unbeatable traffic light racer. However, when you start to reach high speeds, its size creates a lot of wind drag and it starts slowing after 100 mph.

I guess that works in europe. But in the states "does that thing have a HEMI' would trump everything else.LOL
