Finally deciding to step into the fun SUV category with a couple exciting models on my list so far; Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, Mercedes GLE63 AMG and of course the TrackHawk.

I am also looking for a fun SUV. I like the more masculine styling of Jeep as compared to the styling of the Cayenne or GLE. I'm just nervous that Jeep isn't capable of rolling out a vehicle without it having problems. Are you concerned about quality?

Cheers :D

Quality concerns me but I wouldn't be too worried about it, plus we have a while more to go to better gauge what it might be like.

Hi Jeepers,

I want to return to the SUV realm as well. I mentioned in my introduction that I had the opportunity to drive my brother-in-laws 2014 GC 470HP SRT in Germany and it was absolute fun. The engine and exhaust are intoxicating and are bad for MPG's :) ...when he wants to save gas he drives his Ferrari California.

Since it's his daily driver, he beats on it everyday and has had zero engine drive train issues to date. Although, while at the latest service, he did have to replace the rear fender extensions (Europe only option) which fell of twice because they are glued on with double stick tape.

Double stick tape, LOL. That'll do it.

I am thinking a little bit about a slightly smaller SUV than the Grand Cherokee but I haven't decided yet.

That's rather unusual of a California owner, they typically like G-Wagon daily drivers from what I noticed! I bet he had (or I hope) had seat time in a G63 AMG... although it is a unique and interesting combination of things going on.

For those unfamiliar with what i'm talking about:

I think for him it was price driven...he's a different type of bird and doesn't really like AMG's. I on the other hand do like AMG's especially with portal axles!

What specifically doesn't he like about them?
He thinks they are status quo, at least in Germany. He likes to be different...although, the older he gets the less that is true :wink2:

When he was researching the Jeep he did contemplate an RS6 Wagon but ground clearance ruled that out due to his driveway angles. The Ferrari already scrapes the ground upon entry.

Price is indeed a big one, G Wagons aren't cheap and most folks are surprised at what they cost. Priced to weed out a lot of people for exclusivity.
