Forget what you know about the performance SUV. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has ushered in a new standard with its 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI V8. It kicks out 710bhp and a whopping 640 lb-ft of torque. The straight-line performance is spectacular with 0-62mph dispatched in just 3.7 seconds and the quarter mile conquered in 11.6, with that performance made fully accessible by the Quadra-Trac On-Demand 4x4 System. This delivers traction in all driving situations with driving modes to suit every terrain, from mountainous tracks to snow-covered peaks. Leap in and own every curve with the Bilstein adaptive dampers and set off car alarms with that HEMI V8 roar. A word of warning though - the sound of 710 horses is highly addictive.
Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Features
Make a statement
With its enhanced body kit, aggressive wheel arch flare and fat, quad-tip exhaust system, the Trackhawk is unashamedly boisterous. And why shouldn’t it be? It’s the world’s most powerful production SUV.
6.2 HEMI V8
The 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI V8 foregoes the downsizing trend in favour of sledgehammer performance. 710bhp and 640 lb-ft are the numbers, sent to all four wheels through a wickedly quick 8-speed automatic transmission.
The Quadra-Trac 4x4 system has a party piece - an Electronic Limited-Slip Rear Differential that can send 100% percent of available torque to the rear wheels for some sideways action. It also has launch control.
0-62mph in 3.7 seconds. A quarter mile in 11.6 seconds. A top speed of 180mph. With those kind of numbers, you’d think you’re reading about a supercar, not a 2.5-tonne SUV. And yet you are. Incredible stuff.
Wake the neighbours
It starts with a burble and goes with a roar. Plant the throttle and it screams. The Trackhawk is as noisy as it is fast, but don’t worry, the exhaust system quietens down in Comfort mode.
Think with 2.5-tonnes to throw around the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is unwieldy? Think again. It’s setup to handle with Bilstein adaptive dampers and stiff springs to keep you planted when you meet a twisty road.
First-class ergonomics, handcrafted leathers, aluminium interior inserts. Heated electrically-adjustable seats, advanced connectivity, acoustic glass for refinement. SUVs don’t come more luxurious than the Trackhawk.
Advanced driving aids:
The Trackhawk comes a standard with Adaptive Cruise Control, LaneSense with Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist, Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist and Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking.
From its World War II origins, the Jeep has always been about go-anywhere capabilities, and its civilian ancestors have perpetuated and amplified that fundamental trait
Car & Driver
Jeep has really stepped up its game on the inside of the Wrangler over the past couple of years. What used to feel basic and even cheap is now a pretty nice place to be, while still being utilitarian and easy to clean
