I posted this in another thread but here it is again. Looks like they built "one" for the Dodge Durango... Why not the Grand Cherokee? They must be thinking about it!

I just saw this new commercial on TV recently (well it was new to me)... I may be reading too much into it, but it would seem to "suggest" that the Redeye might very well be coming to the SUV...

I've learned over the years to get my best times/speeds, it needs to be done in cold weather and these Hemi's seem to like it better than most. I don't even try for "my best" runs anymore when it's...

Welcome to the board. If you read my posts you'll find that I've had 2 GC SRT's and 2 TH's in the past 5 years. Never took one back to the dealer for anything, except to trade it in on a newer model....

I hope Car and Driver is guessing right. I like my 2019 but if they come out with the TH Redeye (797hp), I'll be back in the showrooms. I like my 2019 so much, I may just give it to my wife and I'll...

That's really interesting info ThawkMike, thanks for sharing. Now I can see why I could only find a few for sale around here. Makes me feel special knowing I have 1 of the 64 Redline 2's in the US...

As long as it meets Chrysler spec MS-12633 you should be good to go. I ran Mobil One 0-40 in my first TH for a while until I read it didn't meet the MS-12633 spec so I switched to Pennzoil Ultra...

Welcome to the forum. You may not want to drive the Camaro pretty soon. I was a Vette guy for 20 years before switching to the GC performance platform. After 2 SRT's and now 2 TH's in the last 5...

Did this just start happening or has it been doing it since you first got it? What did the service manager say about the short cycling?

It doesn't look that bad to me (if it's a run flat) but I certainly wouldn't want to run it at high speeds with that divot. I probably wouldn't high speed it anyway with as little thread as you say...

Agree with other that are saying mid 3's 0-60 are easy to get regardless of the air temps and mid 11's in the quarter are normal too. Of course in cold weather and you should see low 3's and lower...

I do agree, the Pirellis run-flats are terrible. The good news is if you have 8k miles on them now, you'll need to replace them before long. I've had several sets of the Pirelli's and typically only...

Probably. Several trips to Vegas can run up the miles pretty quick. Also, I may be one of the few that have bought a 2018 and a 2019 TH already.

Well you never really know what they give you for...

Thanks, I may just expand my searches for a 2019 rather than order/or wait for a 2020. That is, if I decide to trade in my 2018.

Under perfect conditions that seems possible. e.g. Flat roads, no AC, light load, keeping it under 70mph and maybe even running in eco mode (if that really helps).
