700hp Suv!?

Not a huge Jeep fan, but they have come out with a 707HP supercharged Grand Cherokee that will do 180MPH, 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, 1/4 mile in 11.6 seconds, and will tow 7200 pounds...

If you are not familiar with Doug DeMuro's YouTube channel, it is a wealth of info on all sorts of motorcars.

Would rather pay more for a cayenne turbo. These things are problem riddled

I thought the ZF trans was the only reliable part about it?

I'd rather have a slightly modified Nissan Patrol.

Chrysler is using ZFs in the Cherokees? Didn't know that so I called on the power of Grey Skull. I mean google.

Anyone else thinks it's crazy the have a Jeep pulling a G wouldn't that be over towing capacity?

Btw, the Jeep SRT is incredibly fun to drive and so nice.
