Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

That SRT means a lot to me.. I honestly would have never got an American car with out that SRT or SS on it. I've been loyal to the Jap's and Germans.. "Powered by SRT" just sounds like a piece of posing crap.. I planned on keeping my Jeep and adding a 2 door something in the future anyway.. But was getting hype when I heard about the hellcat.. But Ohwell. I got the color I wanted n the car I wanted.. This will be my American Classic if anything..

Stupid as it would be to have create a new brand image, but there is currently nothing on offer from Dodge to really replace the Jeeps. The Durango would be the closest, but still not the same. And this is a massive cash earner for them.

Then again, they could just flip on this idea later.
Jeep GC SRT = Classic Coke.

The Performance Line in JEEP vehicles could be called...

The SRTrail line!

Oh... and while they're at it... hopefully they can add the AIR SUSPENSION to the SRTrail to give it some OFF ROAD ability!

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

Can someone provide evidence of the Jeep SRT being the best selling vehicle ? Is it based on specific demographics or world wide sales ?

The irony there is the 14 isn't an SRT8.


And here's an article saying the Jeep is staying.

Not sure what everyone is up in arms about, how many people buy the exact same car multiple times in a row, even with a redesign? Love my SRT but can't say I'm going to be getting another one, variety is the spice of life

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

Hopefully they're making a decent profit on it. I'm pretty sure they are considering how much they're selling for.

It's going to be interesting how this plays out.

Scott: Considering how much you put into your beast, wouldn't you be content if the WK2 SRT was the last SRT year and you were driving the last of the bad asses around? Or were you thinking of upgrading with a new model?

If they are good enough why not. You Yanks don't get our Fords over there, but I have bought 3 versions of our Ford Territory, 2 of them turbo 6's with AWD (google it). The only reason I didn't go for a 4th one is because they dropped the performance models.

If the GCSRT does die off i'll have the last of the best, if they make the 2017 model as the last, then i'll probably trade up and hold onto it.

How much sense does that make? Then they wanna replace the NUMBER ONE selling SRT with a frickin cuv Journey? Give me a break. I hate to say it....but FCW is gonna revisit 2009/10 and they wont have a bailout this time. Sad sad days ahead. Whomever dodge has under Sergios desk must have one helluva suction.....
You said what I was thinking and said it so much better than I would have.

This sounds bitchy, but maybe try reading the thread you’re posting in to see what has already been said and clarified multiple times with actual sources.
