There will be no Durango SRT. As far as I know there will only be one SRT SUV, the WK2 SRT8

From what I have been able to see so far, looks like Durango will continue at least through the 2014 model year.

The "Durango SRT" rumors have been going on for years, and for just as long I have stated, based on my sources, that SRT has never had any plans to bring one out, and to this day they still have no plans in the works. Ain't gonna happen...

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.
My thoughts as well. I'd never really understood the idea of an SRT type SUV, be it Jeep, Porche, or Land Rover. The entire idea strikes me as silly and undermines the point of the SUV in my opinion.

Then again, people race pickup trucks around tracks to...

*shrug*

If I want to go fast, I just drive my M5.

SUV = Sport Utility Vehicle.

IMO the SRT8 suits that well.

Yeah, he still firmly believes its an SRT but the other person who went with him who i just had a chance to talk to thinks it's a R/T so we will see..

Wish I wouldnt have had to cancel last minute otherwise I would have been able to give more info..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

He is probably mistaking the 2014 Durango for an SRT. There has been ONE 2014 Durango pilot built, and does hint at sportier styling. I assume this show is where it was sent. But there will NOT be an SRT8 Durango.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Maybe they intend on saving some tooling/badge engineering and replace the Durango with the Wagoneer.

Would make sense if new gov classifications (happened in 2011) make 4x2s uneconomical.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There are many meanings. What I recall from the Olds Bravada was Suburban Utility Vehicle. Have thougt that many should be SAVs: Suburban Assault Vehicles.

Many other meanings of S, "Sport", "Special", or "Supercharged"; L can mean "Luxury", "Limited", "Liter", or "Light"; P can mean "Performance", "Prototype", or "Profit"; E can be "Edition", "Extra", "European", or FI; K: Short or Boosted; T can be "Touring" or Track; G is generally "Grand"; C "Coupe" or boosted. I "injected" or "International"; R "Race" or "Road".

This can lead to some strange combinations like SSKL, TII, SLK vs SLC, & SSJ or the most famous "Homolgated Grand Touring" (used by three different car lines and an IMSA racing class with a different meaning).

The whole name game is a mass of mix and match.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

One feature that I would love on the interior would be for it to have power reclining rear seats like the Range Rover. It already has the same concept, why not just add a power reclining option or standard to higher-end trims. Also if the Rear Dvd is on the back side of the chair instead of the headrest, they should power folding up or they should be recessed in the back of the seat and raise up with the push of a button, kinda like the Audi and Cadillac screens upfront. If I'm paying for these options, they should be or rival the best. Chrysler has the ability to do it. Whether they do or not is up to them!
