The Trackhawk news is now coming hard and fast. After last weeks refusal to confirm or deny the Renegade Trackhawk, this week FCA confirmed the Hellcat powered Grand Cherokee Trackhawk during their annual dealership meeting in Las Vegas.

Automotive News confirms all the goodies, including the 707 hp 6.2L Supercharged Hellcat V8, complete with a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds.

To put that in perspective, the X5 M will scamper to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat as noted by Car and Driver in their last uber SUV shootout.

Timelines remain unconfirmed, but Summer 2016 doesn't seem like a far stretch.

With limited production of this setup chances are they'll get scooped up QUICK before the era of small displacement with turbos is in full swing.

The Hellcat Grand Cherokee is expected to have a limited run for 2018 while the Renegade Trackhawk comes out first in 2017. I suspect that the sales for teh Renegade Trackhawk will go up once the Hellcat is sold out. With a close release date people may be more willing to wait a bit for the Hellcat Trackhawk.

What would make for a great follow up is them putting Trackhawk DNA into non trackhawk models and then use that as part of their marketing. Good way to leverage full on trackhawk models.

Doubt the Hellcat engine will make it onto non trackhawk models but that bumper design elements are very nice and they can be easily transferred onto other models.

No doubt, there's no reason why they should and it just takes away from the Hellcat exclusivity, big slap in the face of owners of Hellcats.

What we will see however are totaled hellcats getting their powertrains repurposed into other vehicles, that of course done by tuners.
