Curb weight on the jeep is only 600 pounds heavier than the challenger. LOL. They allegedly run 13.5

Yup, they drove from San Fransisco to Bonneville for Speed Week. On the way they had a burn out competition. Clarkson destroyed with his 800hp, May drove off the road in the Cadillac, and Hammond couldn't make the Challenger even chirp the tires. Best looking car out of the three though.

The 2011 one looks pretty darn good. New one is supposed to have over 500 hp:

BTW.. speaking of fast suvs, anyone know why I can get a used porsche Cayenne for 20K? That is a lot of depreciation for a porsche. I guess it's cus it is a suv?

ZR1 > CTS and Challenger.

My dad has a SRT-8 Charger with cat-back, intake, tune, and TB spacer and it ran a 13.1 on a G-Force meter on the street they're quick for such a big car and you'd never tell how fast you where going until you looked at the speedo but I am trying to convince him to get the 2011 Mustang GT.
