They wouldn't "stoop" for a SRTŪ Viper GTS-R?

Actually, no. Crude, agricultural, beneath their notice. No matter how well it performs.

And I still don't see how trying to brand these cars as "SRT" instead of "Dodge" is going to make any difference other than to dilute the products from their heritage and alienate the buyers who have no issue driving and want to own a performance Dodge or Chrysler. It’s right up there with spinning Ram off as a brand and one of the few major things I’m left scratching my head about that Marchionne has done since taking control. I love the SRT products but at times they don't seem to come across like they know who they're trying to target when the loaded up SRT-8 models are so expensive, many are too loaded with features to appeal to those wanting a modern muscle car, while others might see decent performance but not quite up to the standards of the competition.

plus a couple other turbo Dodges, a Cobalt, a couple Focus, a V-wagon, and some other stuff...

They are doing exactly what they've always done. Make performance cars that only appeal to a few and then 40 years from now, they will be worth real money since they were so rare.

Well, if I ever win the lottery, I'll surely stoop for a SRTŪ Viper GTS-R.

But getting back to the D-SRT (oh dear, I see what he did there...),
it sure would be nice if someone from SRT would say something about it.
I think this is worse than 2002...there has been nothing at all from SRT.

It's all about the dogs!

I was going to start a new thread for the '14 SRT GC, but then wondered where this one went... so let's bring the old girl back from her slumber.

It looks like SRT is reaching maturity as it's own brand within the Chrysler Group. I suspect this will start filtering down to the other cars soon, and will impact any new SRTs coming to market (ahem, Dart).

There's pictures here: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Photo Gallery - Autoblog







For the brand:
- SRT-branded steering wheel (current cars have an SRT-specific wheel, but with the current parent brand's logo)
- SRT badge loses the "8"
- the Dart's 7" center cluster screen migrates over

The Cherokee itself has some new sexiness:
- the 8-speed with the 6.4L is here!
- the complex 10-spoke rims are replaced with more vanilla 5 spokers
- headlights reminiscent of the 300

I like the overall new look.

Too bad the Cherokee is North of 60k, I'd love to have one. Makes the charger seem like a bargain at 40k though.

And yet in a recent interview Ralph Gilles said that the GC SRT8 was the best selling SRT.

And on the other end of the spectrum, SuperBees account for a third of Charger SRT8 sales. Says something about the breadth of customers.
