Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

You guys have a lot of really good suggestions. I was reading that they plan on putting a 6.4L in it. How much do you think its gonna cost? 45k-50k??

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

Depends on how many goodies they decide to add. The WK2 runs about the same price as the WK, so the SRT8 should be around the same area. My 08 stickered for $47,375, loaded, so figure around there.

If they add more goodies the price will go up. For the right combination of mechanicals and higher quality parts, I'd have no problem with a $55k pricetag. No higher though, or they lose most of the advantage over the Europeans.

ALL 2011-up SRT8 vehicles will have the 6.4L engine. The 6.1L will end production this year.

The rear seat knee and legroom for the WK2 has been increased by more than 4".

1. Removable lower section to the front spoiler for us clowns who want to take our SRT's onto the beach or fire trails.
2. Low range would be a boon but not an absolute neccesity...... maybe a 7 speed DSG with an extra low 1st gear?
3. NO black grainy plastic over the wheel arches!
4. A gearbox that doesn't change up automatically when the rev limiter is reached.
5. The ability to tow equal or greater than the rest of the GC range without the need to resort to exhaust modifications or ugly downturned tip remedies.
6. Switchable to 2WD for ease of warranty-voiding burnouts or dyno tuning
7. And of course, adjustable height and stiffness electronic air suspension - but only if it's RELIABLE and the airbags are shielded from foreign object damage (ie, not Land Rover rubbish!)

All in all, a more "usable" slightly less highway focused SRT is what I crave.
Totally agree on all points made by Ben. Especially the highlighted ones.

I am against paddle shifters. Have tried them out on both Mercs and BMW's. There's no feel in it. Would rather have a proper manual transmission.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

What Ben and Mike said also would like to see a real supercharger or turbo charger setup from factory with gauges already installed ... porsche does it why not on the SRT8 ?

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

Less moving parts = less maintenance and things to go wrong. Keep the F/I and Turbo's for the aftermarket crowd. But give us something to work off of, ie strong block, room to add these items.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

FI as in to have it has an option when purchasing one ... you can get a porsche cayenne with turbo or non turbo ... an option like that would be nice just my opinion ...

What's more realistic.... a factory turbo option from Jeep or from Porsche, LOL.

I have to think the 6.4l would be plenty for the typical (prospective at this point) WK2 buyer.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

If it makes competetive power/performance to the Cayenne, ML63 et all, without resorting to forced induction, then I'm cool with that.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

I don't know but if ur going to have a 6.4L engine I would expect the HP output to be more than 500 for sure around the 600 range ... The new mustangs are only 4.??? L and are going to crank out nearly 500 HP ??? What gives ?
