Rubbish. It's a Jeep that you can't take off-road. To avoid confusion, I also dislike the Cayenne for serving absolutely no purpose except to satisfy a moronic market, but the SRT-8 lacks any off-road capabilities. I understand it's developed for a niche market primarily consisting of aging, 'bigger is better' mentality that a lot of men with midlife crises have, but for a performance car, it's terrible. For the same price you could buy yourself a proper sports-car. Don't get me started on the SRT-4 Caliber, which is thankfully discontinued. I mean, FWD and no LSD on what is essentially a shrunken van with 285BHP? Bleh.
The only proper performance car Chrysler has chugged out was the Crossfire SRT-6, which is discontinued. The standard was clunky, under-powered, had a recirculating ball steering system (enough said), and looked like a metallic turtle. The SRT-8 suffered form these problems too, but it least it had a throaty AMG.
