It also gives you bragging rights as it's the world's fastest SUV, which better yet comes in at only half the price of the 2nd fastest SUV in the world which retails for 6 digits. I still don't get the Porsche nameplate being on an SUV, but I guess they expanded their target consumer to expand their role in the marketplace. It's ironic, but the JGCSRT8 is the fastest SRT8 in Chrysler's lineup.
Yep,the SRT8 is less than half the price of the twin turbo.Now,it won't ride or handle quite as well,but.........the soccer team will definitely think you are the greatest!

Really,the latest,greatest SUV out now(for us old guys) is the Audi 4.2 Q7.Base car (loaded really) is $50k.Ah,the Premium is $60k and will make you throw rocks at a MB-ML500.The Audi is the only super SUV with third row seating.Gotta appease the bride.Sick features like the adaptive cruise control that,once set,will maintain a safe distance from any traffic in front. Maintain,hell.it will come to a stop and re-accelerate up to 90mph,if it was initially set that high,with out any driver assistance.Well........you still have to steer it. No amenities spared,none.Like stalking the interstate in your Bark-O-Lounger GTS/Twin Cup Holder edition.

What use is 3rd row seating if you don't plan on having more than 2.1 kids? Besides, you would want their asses in your wife's minivan so that they won't have a chance to start up a booger wall in your beloved performance SUV

Hey enmoco,

How is the Audi as a reliable automobile. I've only had one experience with an audi and that was friends S4 Twin Turbo. He wound up taking them to court and getting them to finally buy it back on a lemon law. That car was nothing but trouble but I hate to judge a whole company on one guys experience as anyone can make a lemon.

Sadly,sometimes, one particular car develops a problem that is continuiously misdiagnosed or chronically rears its head.Lemons are fewer today,but,Audi overcame the single most disastrous series of lawsuits the auto business has ever seen.The "runaway"killer car" Audi 2000.Today they are absolutely one of the premier car builders.Bar none. Safety,engineering excellence,quality,and certainly performance,are the results of their efforts.Customer satisfaction ratings are indicative of their desire to produce, sell, and service what is surely one of the best machines money can buy,really.

Hey, that's good to know. My buddies kept going through transmissions. He went through three transmission repairs in six months where it was in the shop for over 3 months of that time. He wanted it back just long enough to drive it through the front window of their showroom.

I dunno man. I seems that a Navigator of an Expedition would be better suited to pimp duty. At least the pimps locally around here seem to drive them with those bigass spinner rims. The pimps with less money seem to settle for Explorors or some other big body American car as I have never seen them drive around in anything European of Japanese. To be fair, it's only recently that the Europeans and Japanese have started getting into the bigger megasized luxury suv market.

Ive been looking for a reason to buy a Nissan Armada...plenty big,very pimp with all the comfort of a Nissan. Its just too damn big to park around here. Ive had my car out for alittle over a week today....driving along,cruising maybe 20mph and all of a sudden BLAM....some little chubby pre-teen kid comes outta nowhere and slams into the SIDE of my Little bastard...he was so shook up and afraid that I was gonna kill him or something that he was almost in tears...I couldnt even be mad. Little s**t put a bad ass scratch right below the drivers door and a damn handlebar scrape right below the window....Irony was I that I wasnt even supposed to be out..Stayed home sick today,felt like crap but my cousin,the one that bought my old EX250...dropped it Bike was mildy tore up and he had some kick ass roadrash on his elbow and his hip was bruised pretty bad. He called me to come pick him up and how the hell could I say no..I just picked him up and was driving him home,had to detour around the street I would normally take as their was some shooting...putting me on a street I nearly never travel and why the hell not. I cant even sleep...the one scratch is worse than I though it was as I was kinda shook up too...the damn kid was flying when he hit me tooo

That sucks dude, but is one of the numerous smaller reasons why I opted for an SUV with a full body on frame construction. Cincinnati has some of the worst drivers in the country, and the worst thing is that a recent study concluded that 35-40% of them are NOT insured. We in OH have one of the highest rates on uninsured drivers in the country as well. In the last 3 years, my vehicles have been rearended twice by some ghetto ass ho's, my dad has been rear ended by a trust fund girlie driving mommy's Benz, and now he just got sideswiped in the middle of an intersection by some guy. My mom had the front end of her old Escort ZX2 run over by a big truck, got side swiped by some ghetto ass dude who was ininsured, and now just had her mirror lopped off by some old guy who had just bought a brand new Cadilac and was driving it hope from the dealer. Did I mention this was in the last 3 years?
