SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011
 
Milous already has some great info on the WK2Jeeps.com site about the upcoming SRT8 version of the WK2 at
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_srt8.htm

But here's a place to put other info and links as they turn up.

Here's a very short article at Car and Driver, April 2011 issue:

Looks like a Limited Jeep with 20" reps on it.

Thats because the pics aren't out yet.


I have one reserved at my dealer when they get one, trading my overland for it.

Im surprised they didnt go with a set of 22's. There is alot more room in the wheel well for a set of 22's

They say it is coming with ZF 8 speed. I guess that means this transmission will be available much sooner than originally predicted. Good news for regular WK2's. :thumbsup:

This should put an end to the 5.7 vs. 3.6 debate. Let's just say the difference between the STR8 and the 5.7 will be much greater than the other comparison.

Low 12's in the 1/4 mile out of the factory? :treed: :thumbsup:

according to Milous last SRT8 update. the 5-speed is slated for production...not the 8-speed.

Road and Track says 8 speed now.

Would be much happier to see diesel GC in US instead, twin turbo!

The 8 speed would be great for fuel economy. I cant wait to drive that beast.
