2012 Jeep SRT8 and 300 SRT8

I owned an 07 Jeep SRT8 and have been waiting for years to see the gen 2... Might be the wrong crowd for 6.4 L Hemi love... but here you go.

I like the old Jeep SRT8 much better (especially the front bumper) but the 300 is a definite improvement.

That 300 looks way too plain, like something Toyota would make.

The new jeep looks way to over done in the front....not sure how I feel about the 300 yet.

Are these offical pics? I also had an '07 Jeep SRT8 myself. Not feeling the new grill or the lights in the bumper. As for the 300, looks like they stole the lights from the Audi parts bin and tried to make it work. Not sure I'm felling either.

Definitely agree! I like the styling of the new Jeep, but I'm a little disappointed in the SRT8. Wonder what the inside will look like because the inside of the previous gen is pretty sad!

I hate it when automakers delay new tech and upgrade the exterior completely. Just like the mustang did it, the 8 speed auto is due.

The 300S is getting the 8 speed auto, which baffles me. WHy don't they stick it the the jeep and 300 srt-8s too?

+1....that's the deal breaker. 5spd auto vs 8spd Auto. I'm sure the 8spd will be better milage...I'd wait for the 8spd to come and hopefully it trickes down to the other Jeep and Dodge products.

+1 on audi headlights. They look like the audi A4 headlights with the Q7's LED design.
