how long do you think it will take some moron to flip that truck over and block traffic for the rest of the people who understand that high horsepower does not mix with high center of gravity?

but anyway....looks nice and those #'s are slightly nutty.

this wasn't the point i was trying to make. you can stuff an enzo engine into a dumpster, put wheels on it and make it a dumpster that does 0-60 in 3 seconds. yeah, it's doable, but is that all that you want from a car? i would certainly not get excited about it just because it's really fast...

I just hope they've improved the suspension and brakes enough so it's not dangerous.

The last thing we need is a vehicle specially for the morons who think their SUV is a sports car, I bet a TON of these end up on their roofs

That's RIGHT! B....F....D.! Who gives a flying "F" what the 0-60 numbers are. If you're THAT concerned...go buy a dragster and save everyone else's life on the road!! Another Flamer!!

from C&D- in the skidpad .88 g's (compared to .83 for the 330)
and braking from 70-0 - 178 feet. (same as the XLR-V tested in the issue and on par with most sport cars)

now im not saying this is the greatest thing in the world. but its a really impressive car for what it is. its funny how many people are getting heated because i gave props to a Jeep. imagine if you can get a X5 with the same numbers people here would be praising it till no end. im not saying a jeep is in the same category as a BMW and its BMW forum so i understand the bias but geeze guys lighten up.

WTF? again just wanted to say "nice car" but someone gets all crazy. if i wanted a faster car thats what i would gotten but i got a 330 because its a complete package. im on your side. lol. i didnt bash any BMWs and also thats why i put it in the general automotive forum. "save everyone else's life on the road"? what makes you think i dont drive within the limits of the law? dont jump to conclusions. now F-in relax.

SKIDpad and braking haven't been the issue, it's slalom numbers and quick transitions where SUV's have problems

the jeep's an impressive vehicle, and for the $$ is kick ass

Nothing can make me overlook a domesic's interior. I cant believe its taking so long for them to realize their designs and materials are complete shit. If there werent so many nationalists, the big three would be wayyyy under right now.

*Sigh* it's not like we like it. It's that we're impressed by it. It's pretty freaking crazy for an SUV to achieve that kind of performance.
