It's speed limited at 105. I don't have a pic but the speedo flutters just past the 100 mark when you are going that fast. I did it top down an down hill. I wouldn't recommend it tho. 90 is fine but I wouldn't push it too hard

Horribly. You can move a little bit but if you swerve you are gonna have to change your underwear after. Just hit the horn and slow down. Worse case scenario, you ease into the median to avoid it. Try driving 30 and swerving. You wont like it. Now imagine more than double that speed

I'm with you. I've done 147 and it was crazy. There aren't roads nice enough in the US for me to go that fast again

I respect the safety aspect, even in my CR-V. I don't make sudden moves like that. It even says on the visor that it is a rollover risk.

I got the Torque App for my Jeep and it has a 0-60 test option on it. I tested it several times and was at 9.8 sec. 0-60 and 18.1 1/4 mile

I love this app. only thing is, I watch the actually gas mileage too much but it does give you a better idea how to squeeze that extra mileage out.

Maybe, but Jeeps and speed at least have 4 letters in common. What a difference one letter makes.

I assure you a 2010 2dr 6sp w/3.21's will do 101mph I will dig up the pic of the speedo and gps if I can find it... I wouldn't recommend it though, I had the hood strapped down and a helmet on for that.... I had plenty gear left but the vehicle is drag limited to that speed without more HP...

Worry not it was not on the road at that speed, but on a private airstrip in western NY....

Took the Mini cooper S up there and hit 148mph but still had more gear just not enough runway (was on the shorter of the two)...

To sum it up it will go faster than it EVER should on the street

OK, I don't have time to read all the comments since my wife wants to leave, but I'll check back later to see if I'm the only idiot here to test the top end of his/her jeep.

I have on my nav unit a saved top speed of 107. I had to replace my first nav unit due to someone trying to steal it and breaking it and on that one I had the top speed showing at 113 m.p.h.

65 to 80 I would say.. I drive right around 70 on the highway and to pass I creep up to the 80's but it feels like its being pushed.. for the most part it rides fine at high speed, but its better between 65 and 75 is the best.

the secret is that plastic dam near the bumper. it's actually the real life version of a Flux Capacitor.

and you thought that thing was worthless.

I am yet to find a reason to ever go over 60. I simply don't get the desire, you can't argue that it's necessary
