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.

Not-So-Good Vibrations: The Contest!

Aug 30 2014 8:07am CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Let's play a game. I'll give you the facts and you see if you can diagnose my client's car. My client bought a brand new four-wheel-drive vehicle. He knew nothing about cars and probably never planned to take it off road like in the picture above. (The ones in traffic did not look as fun as this.) After a few weeks of city driving, he noticed a vibration. It was slight at first but it got worse. Th ...

The Return of the Thing — thanks to B.C. firm

Aug 29 2014 4:42pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Boutique autobuilder Intermeccanica is world renowned for producing incredible hand-built recreations of two of Porsche’s classic sports cars, the 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster and the 1959 356 Convertible D. But few are aware of the storied Vancouver firm’s other offering, the Intermeccanica TYP82 Kübelwagen. That’s largely due to the fact that it was previously only available to buyers in foreign markets. Intermeccanica has now received the go-ahead to produce this uniq ...

In-House Development of Premium SUV to Counter “Rebadge” LabelIn its early stages of development, when it was still being called the Kubang, as the concept was named, it was believed Maserati’s first SUV would share most of its dirty parts, minus its engine and drivetrain, with the WK2 Jeep Grand Cherokee, a rumor not denied in the least by management. At one point, it was even proposed that the K ...

30 Years New: Toyota Japan to Sell Brand-New Land Cruiser Series 70—for One Year

Aug 27 2014 11:42am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Here’s the tragedy of the Land Cruiser Series 70: It was never sold in the United States. The toughest and most rugged of the entire lineup is an icon in Australia and South Africa, where they’ve been on sale continuously for 30 years. And for 20 of those years, you could walk into a Japanese Toyota dealer and plunk down a pile of yen for a Series 70 pickup or SUV. RELATED: The 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X is freakishly capable While the Series 70 soldered on in other markets, for 10 years ...

Protecting your new car’s paint job

Aug 26 2014 5:29pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Whether you’ve eaten peanut butter sandwiches for two years to afford a $12,498 dollars Mitsubishi Mirage or plunked down $173 ‘large’ for a 2014 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, people universally cringe at the notion of rock chips on their new cars.

2014 Volkswagen Touareg V-8 TDI First Drive: Torque on Torque on Torque

Aug 26 2014 2:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Until Audi came along with its incredible, 500-hp Q7 V-12 TDI, the Volkswagen Touareg V-10 TDI was the king of the segment. Discontinued in 2010, its final iteration—the R50—served up 350 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. (A less-powerful version was sold in the United States.) But that thing disappeared from our shores years ago, and the only current diesel in the Touareg’s U.S. lineup, the V-6 TDI, pales in comparison. As do the six-cylinder diesels in the big SUVs ...
