Pretty excited as my FX lease nears it end.  Looks like I can buy another SRT vehicle from Roanoke.  This Jeep looks awesome and Roanoke makes it all so easy (integrity in car dealings)!

Anyone else pulled the trigger on this newly revised beast?

Hope you enjoy it as much as you've been enjoying your '08. :driving:

Thanks Ted, but it's far from here yet.  Looks like a July 4th delivery.

I have a 2008 Jeep SRT Loaded... and I have been toying with the idea of jumping to a newer one. I just looked over a 2014 Jeep SRT that just came into my dealer, and WOW, what a vehicle. Rumor has it that a Supercharged version will be made in 2015... and if that happens I am a buyer without question.

A supercharged version?  Although Chrysler has always had a lot of research knowledge and extensive experience with Turbos and Twin Turbo systems I've never heard of any supercharger research.  I'd love that ...  It would hopefully bring the Challenger SRT 8 enough power to stomp on the 640bhp Mustang and 550hp Caddy?

Ted, where have you been? lol. The rumor mill has been churning away for years now on a Supercharged ?6.2L? Challenger SRT-8 leading the charge on this power plant, with other applications following. I believe THIS year it will make it into the Challenger.

Since the '14 will be our "family" car, a SC is not my primary focus (though I'd be lying if I wouldn't want one on the Jeep).  But we probably won't often need more that 470 HP for our "family" drives.  :D

I'd guess it will also add at least $5G's to the price so it'd be beyond my budget.  It was hard enough to convince my wife to spend the extra necessary to move from an Infiniti to the SRT.

Why don't you study it Dan, develop the aftermarket product and when my '14 has 50G miles, you can do the upgrade.  :D

It really does look great!  Lots of folks don't like the new look, but with my usage going to be 98% on an asphalt surface (sometimes in snow), I think it's gorgeous both outside and inside.  Far more sophistication.

I did see a '13 392 Challenger run 160mph in the standing mile down at the Mojave Mile.  It ran an older Kenny Bell blown (557whp) Challenger R/T and they tied.  Owner of the 392 was telling me that his previous car was a blown 5.7 and his new 392 was just as fast.  He said he thinks that SRT lied about the hp,  :D 

I drove a Jeep SRT8 at Woodhouse and was very impressed with it's power.  The rear frame section was strange and it couldn't be used for towing ... so we bought a Ram quad cab 4x4 instead.   :idk:

Can't go wrong with that.  But I think the '14 Jeep is now rated to 5,000 towing.  Must have made some serious changes to the frame and suspension to do that.

The old frame was the strangest piece of engineering I ever saw and there was NO options for towing back then. 

Glad you got to get it happening.  what color   :idk:

White with the black chrome wheels.  Waited until the sepia interior was available from the factory, which was today.  Not sure I like it, but the wife does and it IS her car.  So I'll get used to it!  :D

Sepia meaning beige?  or gray? 

I'm more of a redneck than a Metrosexual ...

I didn't know what the hell color it was either.

In the pics, it's sort of like the Viper cognac seat color.  Maybe with a bit more "brick red" in it.  It's not really bad.  IMO it looks better than simple black.  It's also all leather rather than the standard leather/suede.

After the first week, I'll probably never notice it anymore.  But the SRT will be much more fun to take on family trips, for sure!
