Behold the quickest, most powerful Jeep® vehicle ever created. The fearsome big-bore 6.1-liter SRT HEMI® V8 with 420 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque brings the ultimate performance sport utility to life with more power per liter than the legendary 426 Street HEMI that ruled the urban jungles of the 1960s and 1970s.

From the jeep website. It only has 20 extra HP and 20 extra ft/lbs IT HAS TO WEIGH AT LEAST 500 lbs more minimum. I would think closer to 1,000 lbs more. So how the hell does this happen?? I would say 4wd might be the key but the GTO seems to take him off the line, which is where 4wd would be in consideration. Maybe the jeep was modded to hell, I know there are 11 and 12 second 4wd turbo diesel trucks (ford F350's) but these have performance chips, exhausts, fully blown engines hitting like 900 ft/lbs or more.

First let me reply by saying I am an owner of a GC SRT 8 and this video was posted on the SRT Forum. I believe both were fully stock, but I can get clarification on that.

BTW - I really do like the GTO, not trying to bash at all. Just thought it was an interesting video and was hoping to find out if anyone else on this forum has matched up at the track with the GC SRT 8? When the GTO's first came out, I nearly went for it, but need the extra space, so the SRT was kind of a no brainer.

EDIT - not sure what you guys are getting stock for the 1/4 mile with the GTO's, but the Jeep is getting mid 13's.

3.73 gear ratio definately helps to get that big beast moving.

We can upgrade to 3.73 or 3.91. As of right now, there are no other options for steeper gears for our cars
