Pros

Before the ungodly Trackhawk arrived last year, the SRT was the ultimate high-performance Jeep. While it received mild upgrades for 2018—including the Signature Leather Wrapped Interior package that added new carbon-fiber trim, black exterior badging, and 20-inch satin carbon wheels—there are no updates for 2019.

Pros
Extraordinary acceleration,
aggressive exterior styling,
more practical than the Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT models.

Cons
Poor fuel economy,
steep price for a Jeep,
overshadowed by the bonkers-mad Trackhawk version.
