Pentastar V6
 
Since all of the details should be out about the New Grand Cherokee is the Pentastar (Phoneix) V6 going to be fuel injected or carborated?

Does anyone know if they will be equiped with disc brakes or will it feature drums? Will it have an ignition coil or a crank start?

Your thinking of throttle body injection, its like a carburetor except that the injection of fuel is controlled by the computer.

I hope this newly leaked info helps you guys. Oh and by the way i think you mean carbureted my friend...

I think its pretty obvious this brand new engine will have a carburetor and crank start. As far as brakes go, foot operated is out. There is only a hand operated one in the center console (Similar to the E-brake system in the current WK) and they are drums at the wheels.
I have this sweet never before yet seen image from Chrysler with a guy starting up this new Jeeps motor. This image does not show the motor in an actual 2011 model yet. This was the preliminary phase in development before they even had a design for the new WK. They had to test it somehow.
