No more SRT8?? That's silly. It's just a myth like man made global warming.
I've read in several places that there will be a WK2 SRT8. Will be made with the 2012 production batch. Don't tell me you guys haven't heard of the new 6.4 hemi??

Here's some articles for you all. :)

Yes, we're aware of the rendering (non-official btw) and the speculation. If you go back to Chrysler's 5 year plan they unveiled in early November 09, there was no mention of a JEEP SRT8 on the charts. Again, there's alot of speculation, nothing even resembling a 'leak from an unamed source (cough RS cough)'. Nada. Zilch.

So if they don't make one -- I've got mine and I'm happy. If hey do make one, the 6.4L engine won't be enough to get me to upgrade at this time. Then again . . . I'll paraphrase the SRT Engineers "never say never".

Yeah you're right. It's all unofficial. Even so with all the talk about the 6.4 hemi, and all the srt renders.....one think there's more to it than just speculations. Some of the WK2 SRT8 articles even say they got top notch bullet proof insider info.

If Milous hasnt heard anything...then its just speculation. Milous is the MAN when it comes to info from Chrysler. If he hasnt heard anything.....then theres nothing to hear right now....

There's an old Jeep cliche that goes something like "real Jeeps are made not purchased." With or without a WK2 SRT8 there will still be 400hp+ WK2s on the road. ;)
