SRT10 coming?

A few weeks ago a service tech at the local Jeep dealer mentioned an SRT10 GC coming next year, powered by the Viper engine and most likely transmission as well. I haven't heard of this anyplace, especially not here. Is there any validity to this?

Re: SRT10 coming?

Sounds like your service tech was misinformed.

Re: SRT10 coming?

Sounds like your service tech is smokin the good stuff...where can I get me some! Haha but on a serious note from everything I've read the only SRT10 that will be hitting the streets again is the new Viper, that's all.

Re: SRT10 coming?

There are some V-10 Jeeps running around, but none scheduled for production.

rule #1: never believe a damn thing you hear from a service tech (i.e. MECHANIC!! no, I refuse to use their preferred, fancy, PC name) about new vehicle development.

rule #2: unless vetted appropriately, only seldom believe what you hear from a mechanic.

Hmm, I really wanted to believe it too but a SC SRT8 makes more sense.

Re: SRT10 coming?

An SRT10 would explain the price increase.

I kid, I kid. Sorta.

Let's hope the SCed version will be an ADDITIONAL OPTION to the current SRT8 and not a replacement. I might see myself paying the $60K for the current version - BUT NOT MORE!
