It's cause for celebration because Jeep CEO Mike Manley has confirmed that the Hellcat Grand Cherokee is going to happen, and soon.
Thanks goes out to auto journalist Brian Makse who asked Mike Manley bluntly, "can you put a Hellcat motor in the Grand Cherokee?" To which Mr. Manley replied, "not only can I put a Hellcat motor in [a Grand Cherokee] for you, I'm going to bring to market by the end of 2017." You can see the Q&A for yourself in the video below.
This Hellcat powered Grand Cherokee will likely be called the "Trackhawk". That name was trademarked by Jeep back in 2014.
We also had some indications that this was coming in the past. Jeep reportedly confirmed a Hellcat Grand Cherokee to dealers in August of last year. There were also reports that this model would be able to go from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, which would make it faster than the BMW X5M.
