Hellcat-Powered Jeep Cherokee Is Officially On The Way

The long rumored and much desired 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has officially been unveiled and while it’s down 5 pounds of torque, it is packing all 707 horses that its Hellcat derived drivetrain produces in the Charger and Challenger.

According to official specifications, the Trackhawk will use the exact same boost levels and peak in-cylinder pressures as its hellish brethren. The Jeep will have a boost in oil capacity and will also boast the ability to tow a hefty 7,2000 pounds like it’s little brother the SRT8.  The Cherokee will also have AWD which will propel it from 0-60 in about 3.5 seconds, closing in on the quarter mile in just over 11.5 seconds. Top speed will be aero limited to 180 mph and it will stop impressively quick 114 feet thanks to massive 15.75″ six-piston front and 13.78″ four-piston rear Brembo brakes.

Pricing for the Trackhawk has yet to be announced but expect pricing in the mid to upper $80,000 range. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is available for pre-order now with initial delivery expected in the fourth quarter of 2017.
