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.

Why Do Many Teens Refuse to Buckle Up?

Oct 22 2014 12:58pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

One of my earliest childhood memories is loading up as a family into my dad's wood-paneled Jeep, and hearing, "The car won't start until everyone has a seat belt on." That, and if we wanted to turn the light on in the back, we had to blow on it really hard to wake up the little light-keeper woman that lived inside (thanks for that one, Dad). Because seat belt usage was so ingrained growing up, I've never gotten into a car without buckling ...

Woodill Wildfire was a (short) dream come true

Oct 21 2014 7:09pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The photographed 1953 Woodill Wildfire Series II was one of the cars in the class that I was recently judging at the Santa Fe Concorso in New Mexico. Apparently it is the first confirmed factory built Wildfire of the 15 examples that ever left the factory; only nine are known to exist today. Most of the 285 remaining cars built were sold as kits. This car was also one of the three cars used in the movie Johnny Dark, which starred Tony Curtis playing the part of the design enginee ...

Jeep Cherokee Sales Trending 4WD, V-6

Oct 20 2014 12:10pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Once-Controversial Model Leading Brand’s Sales ChartsChrysler has a history of creating polarizing designs that initially turn off a small segment of buyers but ultimately end up being trend-setting designs that are emulated by competitors. The first major example was the 1994 Ram, which debuted the line’s now-signature “big rig” look. Today, it seems there’s a competition among truck makers for who has the biggest grille. Likewise, when p ...

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT to live on through 2015

Oct 20 2014 10:51am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Earlier this year, Chrysler lumped its SRT performance division back into the Dodge brand as part of the company’s five-year outlook. While that meant the Viper became a Dodge vehicle once again, it spelled uncertainty for the high-performance variants of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300. A new report from Automotive News suggests the future of the non-Dodge SRT models is now a little more certain — dealers can continue placing orders for the Gr ...

The reported change comes as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles reshuffles its ranks with the Dodge brand, re-absorbing SRT and building its muscular reputation with the Challenger and Charger Hellcat models.
