    There won't be a new SRT-8 GC.

    There probably won't be any SRT anything for a bit (on new products anyway)... Until they see if they can exist or not. And they probably want to keep their mileage way down in the future so the government isn't on them for not spending their money appropriately.

    Maybe we'll get an Abarth Grand Cherokee though.

    Not a big fan of the Caddy, but I like the 300 and Grand Cherokee.

    Same here, I don't think it looks good as a coupe.

    I just don't like that it looks like a hatchback.

    Yes there will be. We talked to the dealer here in town.



    We're trading ours in for a 2010 SRT8 Grand Cherokee. :)

    The local dealer must know something that Chrysler Corp. doesn't, then.

    Are you sure it's not carry-over of the current model? The new Jeep could be a 2011 model, and even then the SRT models are usually delayed a bit.

    I don't mind the Caddy wagon, but that C (D?) pillar is a bit too thick IMO. Makes it look too heavy back there. It's is probably a massive blind spot. Otherwise I like their take (I like how they handled the rear end, all but for that pillar).

    '10s will be the same style thats currrent


    and the CTS wagon is hotness, I wonder if they'll offer the V line in it. A CTS V coupe would be awesome.

    Wagon, I doubt... but the coupe? They'd have to, wouldn't they?

    I think there is little point in the coupe if they aren't going to port the high-po parts over. Just kill it now.

    The 300hp 3.6 should be ok for most people. I hope they offer it in AWD. I'm supposed to be in a training session for it as we speak so I would have known this :o

    The aspirational trickle-down effect of a halo product is almost immeasurable, particularly when we are talking about something already as impractical as a coupe.

    ahh look at the bright side, there likely won't be a GM or Chrysler by the time these are supposed to be released.

    The more I look at it, the more I think the coupe may look better from a different angle. The new CTS-V's are great looking, especially with some nice wheels and the right suspension.

    The wagon is nice, but that rear pillar kills it for me

    I think it looks even worse from the rear. How can you see out that rear window?
