2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee might get performance SRT8 version


Chrysler is betting big on the upcoming 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the first all new model since the carmaker was bailed out by the government and saved by Fiat.

With the new SUV, the Pentastar hopes to get Jeep back on top of its off-road game. Judging by the things we heard up until now and by the looks of the new Grand Cherokee, the future model might finally get the company on the right track.

But while we know a 3.6-liter V6 plus a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 will arrive with the 2011 Jeep GC, a new report, coming from Car and Driver, says a new engine might also join the lineup. What unit would that be? Oh, just a ‘small’ 6.4-liter HEMI V8.

Chrysler doesn’t want to comment on the subject, but seeing as how BMW has its X5 M performance variant, the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 does have some things going for it. Reports are also speculating that the powerful GC will arrive in 2012, at least, in order to give the two other variants some breathing room.

Either way, SRT8 or no SRT8, the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, by all accounts, will no doubt score some sales for the Pentastar. Still, until the end of the year when it will enter the market, we have some waiting to do.
