Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Headed to Production with Hellcat Power
By Jason Siu Jun 18, 2015

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is happening.

Motor Authority reports that the American automaker has approved the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee model for production as a 2017 model year.

Sources say that the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will have the same Hellcat 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 engine with 707 hp that is found in the Charger and Challenger. Hooked up to the Hellcat is an eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive standard. Rumors have been spreading over the recent months that Jeep was considering the model and it is believed the company is currently testing it with mules.

When the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk becomes a reality, expect the Hellcat powertrain to give it an estimated top speed of 200 mph with a 0-60 mph time of less than three seconds.

The American automaker wouldn’t publicly confirm that the model is in the pipeline, but given the overwhelming demand for the Challenger and Charger Hellcat models, along with the success of Jeep’s high-powered SRT lineup, doesn’t it just make sense?

2006 Steel Blue 5.7L HEMI Limited 4x4 Build Date: June 9, 2006 Hour 14
Interior: Dark Slate/Light Graystone with Saddle Brown Leather Seats
Quadra-Drive II, NAV, DVD, Trailer Tow Group IV, Off-Road Group II, Remote Start, UConnect, Rear Backup Camera, Chrome Wheels,
Magnaflow cat-back exhaust, Daytime Running Lights enabled, 2" Rough Country Lift with 265/70R17 Goodyear Wrangler AT/S
