A Hellcat powered Grand Cherokee was never going to be cheap and Jeep has finally released the pricing for their new mid-size SUV, which starts at $86,995 each, including destination.
Sure that may seem pricy to most, but the Trackhawk hides a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine, which delivers 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. Of course the driveline components were upgraded to cope with the large amount of torque. All you need to get that pushrod eight-cylinder unit going is some 91-octane fuel.
Combined with Quadra-Trac’s on-demand four-wheel-drive system and a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, the Trackhawk can demolish a quarter-mile in just 11.6-seconds at 116 mph. For those interested in the zero-to-60-mph time, it only takes 3.5 seconds and that’s comparable to the more expensive $285,114 Bentley Bentayga, which scored a time of 3.6 seconds and required 12 seconds to complete a quarter mile. Keeping you in safe is a set of high-performance, yellow-calipered Brembo brakes, which can bring you to a dead stop from 60 mph in just 114 feet.
Not every day can be track day, so the Trackhawk comes with five dynamic drive modes to suit your needs; Auto, Sport, Track, Tow, and Snow. While tearing down a track is more fun, your daily commute won’t feel as laborious with the interior’s soft-touch leather materials carbon fiber accents, and 7-inch driver information display instrument cluster.
