2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 16.JPG

With the debut of the all new Dodge Charger SRT8 at the Chicago Auto Show this week, rumors are already starting to swirl about the next high-powered model to come from the Chrysler group. And the reports point to a new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

No solid details are available, but it’s certain to get the new 6.4-liter V8 from the Charger with a solid 465-hp and 465 lb-ft of torque delivering a mid 4.0 second 0-60 mph time. Along with some more aggressive bodywork and a custom interior, also look for a lowered suspension (possibly an adaptive setup), as well as some big wheels, tires and massive brakes.

With the new Durango R/T model having just been unveiled and priced at $35,000 expect the SRT8-Jeep to easily clear the $40,000 mark.
