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.

Jeep Compass

New York Times: NHTSA Has 'Record of Missteps'

Sep 15 2014 10:41am CDT | Source: Cars.com

A New York Times investigation into the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration alleges that the nation's top auto safety regulator spent the past decade stumbling over recalls and withholding its legal powers to regulate an auto industry with record-breaking recalls in 2014. Perhaps the most damning part: Since 2000, automakers are required to report any claims of serious injury or death as a result of vehicle defects. NHTSA is allowed to make what's called a ...
