Good question actually. Those at chrysler seem pretty smart now if you think about it.
Look at every thing we get now all of a sudden. New tranny, 8 inch nav screen, launch control! This is bad ass. Things I wished the 2012 had. Bummer for those who got a 2012 and dropped their last savings into that car....
Thanks a lot lol, but yea, I feel really behind with my 2012 in just a year of owning it
I'm guessing a real world low 4s is acheivable with launch control. I still don't believe the onboard computers interpretation of 4.3 0-60. Not unless it's at seal level, very cold weather, and slightly downhill. I just don't see it. Just my opinion. I think 4.8 average is about what the 12-13 Wk2 can do. Sure you get some better real world times, but that's what I believe. A 4.6 average in the '14 for a vehicle as heavy as the Jeep is damn impressive.
Once again ALL IMHO. I do not own a 12-13 SRT8, I'm only basing it on rides in them and seeing races against other cars.
Not a fan of groupthink and limitless congratulatory high-fives.
My 12 still puts a huge grin on my face every time I drive. I don't get excited about a bigger Nav screen. The launch control is cool, but I can launch mine pretty well without it. The 8 speed tranny, I'm undecided about. Overall, the 14 is a great update, but I'm in no rush to move into one.
