The more I hear about the new Jeep performance wise this is my take on it.

Even with launch control the Jeep is basically the same 0-60 because of the extra shift. The midrange (roll race) is a little stronger (good). The quarter miles is a couple tenths quicker (good).

Sounds like a tuned 12 should kept pace with the stock 14 at the drag strip until they figure out tuning for them.

Tuning shouldn't be much different for the 14's. I would expect it to be out pretty quick.

Even with the new PowerNet architecture?

Has Diablo even released the WK2 2013 tuning yet? What's the hold up there?

Preliminary orders are at mid 60s, granted not a finalized price, but should be close from my understanding.

Color me shocked and happy. I hope they depreciate hard so I can scoop up a 14 in 2015.
