The folks at CARandDRIVER recently caught up with the Jeep crew and asked them the question we’ve all been waiting an answer for. Will there be a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8? While they didn’t officially confirm anything (or deny anything), they did say that when Chrysler does do an SRT8 version of the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you can expect it to appear within the first couple of model years after introduction.
Power is expected to come from a 6.4L naturally aspirated HEMI V8 making between 505-hp and 525-hp.
Refresher: The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be offered with two new powertrains including Chrysler”s new flexible fuel 280-hp Phoenix 3.6L V6 which increases fuel-economy by up to 11 percent. The range will be topped off with a 5.7L HEMI V8 making 360-hp and a maximum torque of 390 lb-ft.
