Jeep Pondering Cherokee SRT4
An SRT version of the redesigned Cherokee would be “a lot of fun”, said Bartoli, adding that the vehicle’s chassis “has a lot of legs to it”. “Nothing’s impossible with that platform, I think we have a lot of flexibility with it,” he continued.
However, an eventual high-performance Cherokee won’t get the Grand Cherokee’s 6.4-liter V8, as the engine wouldn’t fit in the crossover. This leaves the company with the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 or a turbocharged four-cylinder mill, the latter more likely to be used because it would “make sense for CO2 and stricter emissions regulations.”
Earlier this year, another report claimed that the Cherokee SRT could become available with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that could provide up to 410 horsepower.
