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!
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!
