Rumors had indicated that Jeep would unveil a high-powered version of its Grand Cherokee at the New York Auto Show this week, and a new report by Automotive News seems to confirm as much. But the Grand Cherokee SRT8 won't be the only heavyweight to hit the stage in New York, with the Chrysler brand also preparing to unveil a more potent version of its 300 sedan.

With both models expect a lower and stiffer suspension, plus some more aggressive bodywork, not to mention larger wheels and upgraded brakes.

Look to the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 for what will power the beasts, with that car making use of a new 6.4-liter V8 engine that delivers 465-hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Both models should be able to do the run to 60 in under 5.0 seconds.

Look for full details and photos from the live reveal in the Big Apple, with AutoGuide's 2011 New York Auto Show Coverage here (

^^ very old, and fake. There literally is/are zero press photos available for the 2012 GC SRT8 to be unveiled tomorrow. So, only those who have seen it at the plant know what it looks like.

surprising news. like I said 1 more day.
