Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Spied; 480-hp 6.4-Liter Hemi V8 Included

The folks at Jeep might not admit it yet, but they don’t have to any more. That’s right, an all-new SRT8 Jeep Grand Cherokee is on its way.

Recent spy photos show a version of the 2011 Grand Cherokee sporting a covered font fascia that is noticeably lower than the standard one. Plus, the big SUV has wider fenders, larger wheels and a lowered ride height.

As for what’s under the hood, the new SRT8 model it tipped to get Chrysler’s larger 6.4-liter Hemi V8, making 480-hp and 460 ft-lbs of torque – just like in the upcoming Challenger SRT8. Also set to be included is a new 8-speed automatic transmission.

Combined with much-improved luxury interiors, perhaps Jeep will make good on its promise to give the BMW X5 M a run for its money.

Like allow for the air suspension so i can take it to the ski slopes in CO (by lifting the low front facia away from the snow in the winter, ensure that we can get all season tires. Also make sure that we can get all of the luxury items from the Overland in the SRT8 version too.
