Ralph Gilles wants a diesel-powered SRT model… at least in Europe!

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 29, 2012

Wait, what? It appears that diesel engines are becoming more and more popular and the brand new SRT brand wants to offer what the world wants. After Mercedes-Benz’ AMG brand announced that it will offer high performance vehicles powered by diesel engines and after Bmw introduced the tri-turbocharged diesel powerplant, it’s time to see an American answer.

CEO, Ralph Gilles, pays attention to its fans on twitter and when asked about a possible SRT vehicle capable to take on the performance oriented diesels offered in Europe he said that: “I am a fan, We would cut our teeth in Europe first”.

This means that Europe will be the first to see a SRT diesel, but the model remains a mystery. Currently, the only possibility is the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is available in International markets. A diesel-version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee might also be a solution as the SUV looks real hot. Still, this is only a possibility!
