According to the latest whispers off the rumor mill, the highly anticipated Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is finally arriving as a production series model this April during the 2017 New York Auto Show.
If the report pans out, then Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is taking the Big Apple by storm in terms of performance introductions – as the company has already confirmed there the so often teased Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. So far we know the Trackhawk will be styled more aggressively even when compared to the SRT counterpart. Jeep’s CEO Mike Manley has already confirmed the SUV’s heart and soul will be the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 from the Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat, but the exact technical specifications remain a mystery.
The addition of the all-wheel drive system might stand in the way of catering to the road with the full 707 horsepower (527 kilowatts) – but still the model could pose a threat to the Nurburgring SUV lap record after its release. The Trackhawk name has been trademarked by Jeep back in 2014 – but it’s still not confirmed for the flagship hardcore version of the Grand Cherokee. Anyways, the beefiest of American SUV should also arrive with a plethora of other upgrades – from modified suspension to enhanced brakes.
