Goodbye X5 Hello SRT8

A sorry day, but a good one as well, with my X5 8 years old it was time to trade for business reasons, and it has to be the most reluctant sale of a vehicle I've made to date. Looking at all of the high powered SAV's the Jeep for me won hands, an X5M in AUS is almost twice the price, and it's not twice the vehicle. So I now have a SRT8 ALPINE, fuel fortunately isn't an issue for me as I don't do enough Ks, but with 475 hp ( 344 kw ) that thrill takes away any pain.

You bastard, I'd trade the E53 in for an SRT8 any day of the week.

Enjoy

I'm personally not a big fan of American SUVs, but the SRT-8 is a hell of a looker...and boy does it sound great. I'm not sure I'd buy one, but I'd never scoff at one. Very cool truck.

Congrats!

I actually took a very brief look at that truck recently. I liked it but it didn't have any better reliability and much worse gas mileage. All in all, it's a mean truck and hauls serious ass. Enjoy.

Pics will follow, I'm removing all of the decals first, I saw a slightly modified version by Mopar and it looks far better. It sure sounds better than the diesel, keeping my foot off the pedal is going to be the problem. Thanks everyone.

I looked at the jeep also, I like it,interior is sweet, very pricey and fuel consumption is crasy , the engine is a wild bore ,and a bit of a pig also.
I would like to see the HP and Torgue that a 6.4L BMW engine would look like and what car /truck they put it in.
That svt 8 jeep is the fastest production vehicle they put out.
Maybe Alpina makes something with a giant engine like that.
