If by "hemi" you mean "half", then yes, I'm sure it has a hemi-V8.
Hemi refers to the hemispherical head chambers and many cars use them so I guess this could be a hemi.
To bad current "Hemi's" aren't real Hemi's.
Hemi is a brand name - it can be what ever Dogde wants it to be. If they put out a flat head they could call that a hemi. So no that xb does not have a hemi
Hey... dick... that was actually pretty funny and witty...
Now I'm not trying to make friends with you... but that was good and made me LOL here.
Sorry, I'll try to be drier and more irritating from now on.
guy around here has a lSwon in a xb, its pretty nasty
it might not have the same still canted valves but most engines run a nearly hemispherical head now
Why yes... it does have a hemi.
Its a different xb in case you havent figured it out.
oddly enough another boxy car might actually GET a hemi
Spy Shots: Dodge Nitro SRT8???

When one of KGP Photography's crew happened on a fairly innocuous looking Dodge Nitro in downtown Detroit, it was only a small badge on the rear lift gate that gave notice to this Nitro's hidden secret. Sporting the "SRT8" emblem, this high-po Nitro is likely packing the automaker's 6.1L HEMI V8 underhood. From what we can tell, the vehicle appears to be wearing the 20-inch wheels from the Mopar accessories catologue. Also, those front fender events that are usually capped with three chrome cross bars may be mesh on this particular vehicle and imply (gulp) actual functionality. Other than that, this Nitro SRT8 looks to have been modified very little on the surface, and unfortunately the camera man couldn't get a shot of the front end, which might be festooned with vents, slats and perhaps a deeper chin spoiler.
While the badge on the rear lift gate could be a ruse, we do know Chrysler is trying to do as much as possible with the vehicles that remain in its line up, and the Nitro could use some attention, for sure. A 425-horsepower Nitro, however, is just kind of nuts. Perhaps it's the poor man's Grand Cherokee SRT8.
UPDATE: We're fairly certain this is a fake perpetrated with a spare "SRT-8" badge and some super glue, having gotten confirmation from a number of sources that there's no way the 6.1L HEMI would fit in the Nitro. Thanks, Dodge.
