That wouldn't be unlikely based on Milous' "might"-prediction..

If it is available for the regular WK2 for MY2012, it is also available for the SRT8 (or vice versa).

Any info on if/when direct injection will show up on the 3.6?

According to the folks over at Allpar.com, they nixed the idea of direct injection due to noise concerns in the Grand Cherokee. Other incarnations of the engine are likely to have it, and it may eventually come to the GC, but I've yet to read anything about an expected or estimated date.

My own guess would be that DI won't show up before an 8 speed transmission.

I look forward to seeing the turbo versions of the 3.6

Re: New 8 spd from Chrysler: will it go into the WK2?

Turbos have always been problematic in my mind, but I'm an old guy that remembers the coked oil passages of early turbos. Our local mechanic tells me that VWs still suffer from that if they are not maintained properly. I'd prefer a supercharger if they want to add boost.

Agreed, sounds like they'll be using this Daimler transmission instead.
