Nitro Detonator 4.0 in KK?

Dodge is coming out with a "Detonator" edition of their Nitro with a 260hp 265 lb-ft 4.0L V6 in it. Is there any hope that this engine could be swapped into a KK?

That engine swap would also require a transmission swap, that transmission swap would require a transfer case swap. And you'd pretty much gain... well... nothing. Oh and you'd lose low range. And it might not even work at all.

I Love it!, chrysler should offer it as an option on the liberty. Paxton should look into adding a supercharger in it.

Doesn't detonator imply something that blows up.... hmmm... I guess marketing wants the engine to be noticed...

You do not want that engine,just a bored/stroked 3.5 and that is a terrible engine.
