Red face So Uh... Yea... I Drove A 2006 SRT8 Grand Cherokee Today!



We got a nice black one in at work today, and I was the lucky one to take it out on the road for a little test!

I made sure I took traction control off.

Lets just say... It was REALLY fun to drive... LOTS of power!! I loved getting thrown back into my seat when I punched it!!! The Muffler Sounds TITS at WOT! Hell... The muffler sounds beautiful even idling!

EVERYONE was looking at me/truck when I was driving it! It was great!

6.1-liter HEMI.
415 Horsepower.
410 LB Torque.
0-60 MPH (Not KM) in under 5 seconds.
4 Wheel Brembo Disc Brakes

Here is what it looks like (I drove the "Brilliant Black" one tho)...

OK... So you heard a lot of the good stuff... Here is the brick in the stomach part for whoever bought it 2 hours after it arrived on site today...

15MPG CITY
20MPG HWY

Actually... it cornered pretty decent for a Jeep. But then again my test-drive involved fishtailing.
