The big lump you see pictured here is by far my favorite attribute for our JGC SRT8. Taking the kids to soccer practice? Give the SRT8 a downshift and extra throttle to get their adrenaline going. Slow-going Mercury Sable slowing you down on the freeway? That's nothing 470 horsepower can't fix. Shopping run at Target? It'd be a drag with our Wrangler, but here it's all grins.

I'm finding myself utilizing and enjoying the V8's brawn quite a bit. And I figure you might as well. Otherwise the SRT8 is just a JGC with a barely tolerable ride quality and miserable fuel mileage.
