So far, the 6.1 Hemi is an SRT engine for SRT vehicles.
300C SRT-8, Grand Cherokee SRT-8 and probably the
Magnum SRT-8. 425 horses and 420 torque are the #s.

Wow. Chrysler is making a Grand Cherokee SRT-8. Thats pretty cool. Do expect to see the 6.1 in the 2500/3500 HD trucks aswell. If not 2006 definately 2007. Its gonna pick up where th 8.0L V10 left off in the Ram lineup.

If they put it in the 1500 Q/C I'll trade mine in....unless of course I just step up to the Q/C SRT/10. Waiting to see how far over 50large that will be...:o)

yeah, this pot smokin' dealership here adds a 6k mark up for "limited availibility". making a grand total of 53k. maybe they are smoking crack...but the Q/C SRT-10 does look more appealing for a family man.

From what I've read, lots of the parts from the 6.1 will transplant to the 5.7. I for one, am interested in a set of heads. The 6.1 supposedly outflows the 5.7 and has larger valves.
