Jeep Cherokee Will Get the SRT Treatment According to Rumor

Engine choice for SRT version remains a mystery

While nothing has been officially confirmed by Chrysler or Jeep, rumors are circulating that the newly announced Jeep Cherokee will be getting the SRT treatment. The current Jeep Grand Cherokee is available as a high-performing SRT version. The SRT version of the normal Cherokee is expected to get all wheel drive.

The standard Cherokee is a front-wheel-drive SUV. There is no indication of what engine the SRT version of the Cherokee would use. Odds are it would be a 3.0-liter turbo Pentastar V6 somewhere around 400 hp.

Rumors point to the possibility of both a single turbo or twin turbos. While mystery still surrounds the Cherokee SRT, front-wheel-drive standard Cherokees are reportedly in production with Trail Rated 4 x 4 versions coming later.

Secretary Of Transportation Anthony Foxx Speaks On Investigation Into GM's Ignition Switch Recall
DETROIT — The ignition switch defects that engulfed General Motors are now a rapidly growing problem at Chrysler. Chrysler said Tuesday it is recalling up to 792,300 older Jeep SUVs worldwide, including almost 30,000 in Canada, because the ignition switches could fall out of the “run” position, shutting off the engine and disabling air bags as well as power-assisted steering and braking. That’s the same problem that has forced GM to recall more than 15 million cars over the last s ...
