At least there's this site so you can compare. Then you'll realize that we now have off road vehicles that put the 90's supercars to shame. Honestly, we are living in the golden age for ICE when it comes to power an acceleration. Something the muscle car era could only dream of. My Jeep is faster than my old Fiat Abarth, my Alltrack and certainly, my Eurovan. Only thing in the garage that is faster is my wifes X3 M40i. That thing is too fast for what it needs to do.

I do suggest if you can ever do it, drive a Tesla Model S with the Plaid Mode. It is way too fast. Best thing is that just recently, a new one ran just under 9 seconds in a quarter mile. Super way too fast for a street car.

Doesn’t the Tesla plaid have to sit and warm the batteries for awhile before you can access the performance? That would make it a party trick and of no use day to day.

Lol a Tesla s plaid is $131k. It ran the 1/4 in just over 9s (9.2s). The guys on roadkill took a 1967 firebird running 9.4s on a 1000 mile road trip to various drag strips as part of drag week.

2.0 in 5.8 secs in a Jeep or Bronco! Wow, you all gotta give up those funny cigarettes!! JLU's or not, 5.8 seems a pretty good stretch of imagination to me!

The new Bronco's seem to me like a Sport Utility Car" to me! It's a Jeep thing I guess!!!

Go Jeep!!!
