As has been known, the 2011 GC will launch with the new 280 hp Pentastar V6. I don't see any sign of a turbo version scheduled for the new GC. At least not for the 2011 or 2012 model year.

IF a next gen Jeep SRT gets the green light, it will have one and only one engine - the 6.4L Hemi.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee- V6 single and twin turbos coming

So Milous, are you saying that the only real reason anyone would want the 5.7 now is for towing? ie, is the performance of the V6 basically equal when lightly loaded, but the torque of the 5.7 helps when towing?

For the new 2011 models they have moved it to the interior, at the bottom right of the center stack:



Focus group studies revealed that owners felt the long standing under-hood location was inconvenient, especially in inclement weather. The idea to locate it in the cabin was received very positively. For example, while traveling, a driver could pull over at a rest stop, have a cup of coffee, and then conveniently check the oil before heading back out on the highway, without having to get out of the vehicle.

The idea to locate it in the cabin was not well thought out, but received very positively. For example, while traveling, a driver could pull over at a rest stop, have a cup of coffee, and then conveniently check the oil, dripping it all over the interior before heading back out on the highway, without having to get out of the vehicle.
Fixed it for you, since that's the dumbest thing I've ever seen...
