FYI to those new forum owners: we had a ongoing thread last year on Draggy times by owners. Two common facts we found out is....1 we can get a slightly faster 0 to omg speed not using launch control. 2....what your elevation is and temp is at testing will give you a slight advantage. A final interesting observation is how easy and repeatable these big SUVís are at very fast launches. Even my wife can get a 4.3 second launch all day long just by mashing the pedal.
With an automatic transmission and AWD, how could you possible mess it up? I'm sure the same is true for any AWD car with a well tuned automatic transmission.
