Back in May, Chrysler Group said that the SRT designation for high-performance vehicles will only be used for the Dodge brand. The statement left the future of the Chrysler 300 SRT and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT in question.
However, new clues are surfacing about Chrysler’s plan for those vehicles. The company has filled for trademark on the ‘Trackhawk’ name leading many to speculate that the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT will be rebadged the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
A company source told Automotive News that dealers will be able to order the Grand Cherokee SRT for the 2015 model year but for 2016, the SUV is likely to be renamed the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Nonetheless, the source said that no decision has been made.
The current Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is priced at $65,390 and is powered by a 6.4 liter HEMI V8 making 475-hp.
