Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk In All Its Uncovered Glory



Automobile’s spy photographer caught the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk prototype roaming between FCA’s Auburn Hills Tech Center and the SRT headquarters in all its camouflage free glory. These pictures are our first real look at what the Hellcat SUV will look like.

We already know what’s under the hood, a 707-horsepower Hellcat engine, and now we know what’s on the outside as well. In order to keep that supercharged 6.2-liter V8 cool, designers had to add additional vents to give it more room to breathe.

Unlike the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat models, the vents aren’t in the form of hood scoops or heat extractor vents; instead, the Trackhawk will have three new cooling inlets under the grille. To fit these vents, the front grille was shortened to about half of the Grand Cherokee’s grille.

More changes are to be found under those inlets as the new Trackhawk is sporting two large air ducts on either side of the center air intake and there’s an additional intake slit in the front bumper spoiler. Incorporated into the outter intakes are LED light strips

The front fascia received an update but aside from that, the rest of its body looks pretty similar to the standard SRT Grand Cherokee. Take a look at the pictures and let us know what you think.

The front looks underwhelming, I expected more changes to be made to the body so the exterior matches the beastly engine under the hood. Maybe more ridges in the front or changes to the side pinched metal design. I don't know, just something!

It'll be a sleeper ! You don't expect 700+hp out of something that looks so subtle Throw some exhaust cut-outs underneath and bam... good to go

When I get one of these, I'll definitely want to rake the front end ! That with some WELD wheels, this would look insane

What will be more interesting now that we're seeing it in pictures, is seeing it on the street, especially when next to other fast SUV's like the Range Rover SVR. And on that note, we need to see the two of them going head to head!

Now that is definitely going to be a spectacle to watch. The amount of reviews and comparison videos when this comes out will be insane !

But I wonder what other vehicles they're going to use. Other than the Range, Cayenne Turbo S, and some one of the BMW Xs. Do you think they'll try to pit this against performance sedans ?!

I don't see why not. The Trackhawk powerplant has enough juice to beat quite a few sedans but the extra weight may slow it down at the starting line.

That's pretty much it, it's a given that it has the top-end handled. Wonder what the launch control will be like

it is not impressive. It deserves more. Hood scoops, side vents, distinctive badging would add to its exclusivity.
