Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So since nothing has been posted so far, I assume the 5.7 HEMI won't get a power-boost?

Am I correct that the info you are posting was released at the dealer reveal in Vegas? Did you personally attend? (So we know the info came straight from the horses mouth)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hey Brakes,
I've read the little red express has the smoke stacks and 5.7....what else makes it special? Lowered? Different fascias?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Well, that only puts Chrysler 90 HP less and 2 model years behind the 2012 Camaro ZL1 and 172 HP and 1 model year behind the 2013 Shelby GT500.

I sure hope Chrysler gets into the game and is not left behind. Both the ZL1 and GT500 are about $60,000 which is not much more than the current Challenger/300/Charger. We need some serious performance for our money!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

In order to be serious these dayz you need about 400 hp/ton. Maybe if VW and FIAT merge the SRT could get the W16 engine with 64 valves and quad turbochargers. Of course the price would go up a bit (the seven speed trans is said to have an MSRP of $120,000).

Point I am making is that the WK2 is best as a tow vehicle for something else purpose designed to be really fast. I try to avoid compromises.

OMG how could things get any worse than that?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Ive talked to people there as well and they saw no Durango SRT8. I think whomever Nobrakes got his info from may have seen the Durango r/t and thought it was an SRT? No idea....

You would think that if they were going to build a Durango SRT...it would be with the Jeep SRT componets...ie. 6.4 etc etc. But from what I know...none of that is mentioned in ChryCo documents from my sources. Milous also has seen nothing...so it would have to be the BEST kept secret ever from ChryCo.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

there is something about the front on the lower fascia of the GC srt-8 in the air dam that i dont like. if they did release a Durango srt-8 with a better designed fascia i would almost consider a trade nah I wouldnt lol

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I just talked to a second source who was physically at the show and saw the entire SRT presentation by R Gilles and there was NO Durango SRT in the presentation. He did say he was not there for the Dodge presentation...but the Durango SRT wouldve been in the presentation by RG if it were true.

Now...I would LOVE to see the Durango SRT...I just think someone is mistaken.
