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.
