2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has been spied undisguised somewhere near the SRT headquarters and the FCA Auburn Hills Tech Center in Michigan. The Cherokee Trackhawk will be powered by a 6.2-liter V8 pumping 707 horses.
The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk doesn’t have a big center-mounted hood scoop as seen on Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat models. Instead, it has a pair of thumping great heat extractors, just like the 6.4-liter V8-powered SRT does.
The slots on the brand’s signature seven-slot grille appear to be about half as tall as they are on other Grand Cherokee models, while a unique front fascia features three additional cooling inlets just below the grille. They’re there to suck in the air needed by the supercharger of the 6.2-liter V8.
The wheels are carried over from the SRT and black insulation tape on the front doors masks Grand Cherokee lettering. The slotted brake rotors, on the other hand, make a contrasting note.
As for the rear end, the supercharged V8 breathes out through two large exhaust outlets.
At the present moment, finer details such as output and price are still on the mysterious side of things. Power for the new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk comes from a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 making 707 hp mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
With its all-wheel drive traction, we expect the Trackhawk to be the quickest-accelerating Hellcat-powered vehicle and one of the quickest-accelerating vehicles in the world with 0-100kmph in the 3.5 second range.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is expected for 2018 launch.
