Was not sure where to place this information. There are a few threads about the new numbers run by the 2012 SRT8.
That is the information people like to ignore... The Jeep was designed to be much more refined, offer better handling, but maintain similar straight line acceleration. They did what they set out to do. When running the WK1 vs. WK2 stock for stock it was found that they had similar numbers but the WK2 did pull a bit more up top. Even being equal times/speeds SRT did a great job with the platform they were given. The only thing they dropped the ball on is the price.
