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.

Ram Trucks CEO Says No 707-hp Hellcat Pickup “At This Time”

Oct 30 2014 5:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The story at Chrysler these days is the supercharged Hellcat V-8 engine. Seriously, it’s a 707-hp engine you can buy in one of two relatively normal and inexpensive vehicles, the Charger and the Challenger. As exciting as that is, what really gets us excited is figuring out what Chrysler product the Hellcat will end up in next. We had lunch with Ram Trucks’ new CEO, Bob Hegbloom, and we had to ask: When will we see a R ...

Exploring in L.A.: Redone 2016 Ford Explorer Headed to Los Angeles Show

Oct 30 2014 12:41pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The refreshed 2016 Ford Explorer is coming sooner than we thought when we recently spied the thing—it’s just weeks away. Look for the crossover utility to debut at the fair-weathered, traffic-snarled smog capital of the U.S., Los Angeles. Ford’s mid-cycle update is rather late on arrival, although SUV buyers haven’t truly minded. Even though the Explorer’s popularity has waned since its 1990 debut and heydey in the early 2000s, the vehicle remains a go-to choice amon ...

The Pre-Owned 400 Club: 5 Ways to Get 400 Horsepower (or More) for $20,000

Oct 30 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with ...

Ferrari’s future success outside of Fiat-Chrysler questioned

Oct 30 2014 8:11am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

For Ferrari, proving it can thrive as an independent sports-car maker may be a tougher challenge than a Formula One victory. Following its spin-off next year from parent Fiat-Chrysler, the global cachet of the Ferrari name will be key to master hurdles such as the costs of developing cars that meet the standards of its elite customers and ever demanding regulators. Ferrari’s self-imposed production cap at about 7,000 cars a year, aimed at preserving the exclusive ...

The BMW X5 was not only one of the first true luxury SUVs, it was also one of the first seriously fast SUVs. The first generation was offered with a distinctly sporty naturally aspirated 4.4-liter V-8, later supplemented by a 4.6 and then a 4.8-liter unit.

Chrysler Recalls 566,000 Ram, Durango, Grand Cherokee Models

Oct 29 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Chrysler is recalling 566,000 SUVS and pickups for faulty airbags, a stability control flaw, and leaking diesel fuel. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango have airbag modules that can short-circuit due to a manufacturing defect on the circuit board. As a result, the front airbags, side airbags and seat belt pretensioners could be disabled; if so, a warning light should appear on the instrument cluster.
