Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?
 
I just saw an article on Motorauthority about the SRT brand being integrated into Dodge and any non Dodge SRT models being phased out. Any inside info on if this is true about the Jeep SRT?

Milous just noted it is still there for at least 2015.
It would seem a rather stupid move, which does not mean it won't happen.

SRT is a very recognizable brand, much like AMG, M-Series, TuRD, even though a few of the past efforts have been snoozers, e.g. the old Dodge SRT-4.

Doing some reading and it looks like Dodge is absorbing the SRT brand and all new SRT vehicles will only be under the dodge brand. Looks like no more GC or 300 SRT. Found the below links on the Challenger forum. Looks to be true, no mention of any SRT models on the jeep or chrysler presentation.

Milous, does this mean that there will not be a 2015 SRT Grand Cherokee?

The 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT starts production in late July. I still show it for the 2016 model year as well.

That is good to know. Thanks! I just traded in my 14' and would have been kicking myself if that was the final year of production. I think it is safe to say there won't be a Hellcat version though. I will definitely pick up another before production ends.

If its popularity continues to be strong, they could carry it through the 2017 model year (end of WK2 generation).

I hope that is the case Milous. I just traded my 12 on a 14 and my plan was to do the same again in 16.

Another possibility - Grand Cherokee with 6.4L "Powered by SRT".
