Am I right at thinking that the more this engine is delayed, the more Jeep and SRT's brass will ponder fitting it into this generation of Grand Cherokee, or saving costs by waiting for the next generation (WK3), which is "due" in 2016?

That's only a 5 year model run.. Are you sure about that?? I would bet it's going to be a 17 model

Re: two GOOD sources are telling me......

Maybe by then Ill pick one up, Id love a factory supercharger on my jeep. Too bad the price is gunna be like 80k for it by then most likely. Either way should be great to see the SRT grand cherokee keep evolving, thats what excites me.

A '17 model would be available in late '16, and if history repeats itself, SRT versions would be available in '17 calendar year with a "gap" in '16 with no SRT available (same as 2011)... In any case it is just me trying to project what might happen... and people close to the factory / the brand usually remain very discreet about future developments.

I think the next SRT will come out at the same time as the regular model. I remember them making a big deal about the 2014 refresh being the first time the SRT model came at the same time as the regular model.

I sure hope it will be the case, but this makes the "time window" for a 6.2 supercharged WK2 even smaller.

Re: two GOOD sources are telling me......

i would rather wait couple of years to get a better quality as 2012 had alot of defects from factory

6.2L will sure be my next upgrade hope its 2016+
