Jeep Cherokee Will Get the SRT Treatment According to Rumor

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.
