2012 Toyota Camry SE: How Embarrassing

July 26, 2012

For the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, that is. What and why? 

Rev-match downshifting. It's got to be completely embarrassing for the SRT boys that the boring old family sedan Camry blips the throttle on manual downshifts with the steering wheel paddles or center console lever, while the driver-focused Jeep can't.

Hey, I'm not saying the Camry always perfectly matches revs like the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series (which stirs your soul, every time. No, seriously, it's addictive). But at least the Camry is making an effort. The Jeep SRT8? It's not even trying.
