That's very respectable for a SUV or truck, or whatever you wanna call it. Too bad Chevy isn't in the game.(SS Trailblazer still falls short, IMO).

$40K is a lot for a vehicle. Maybe I can afford one some day.

None of those performance numbers betters an FXT with just the mildest of tweaks... the only thing that the Dodge/Jeep has is interior room.. oh.. and curb-weight.

I happen to agree w/DanzB!

yes, very minor in this case... since the performance of that vehicle isn't any better than the FXT.

I would grant that it's tow and ultimate load capacity is better (as stated previously).

If all anyone wants is displacement, go get a 3/4-ton Suburban with a big-block.
