What’s better than a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk? More Hellcat powered models with the same Trackhawk badge!
Though it’s still too early to tell how well the Trakhawk will perform in sales, a few forum members have already put down a deposit for one, which means there is a market for high performance SUVs and Jeep may be interested in additional Trakhawk in the future.
Jeep head of brand Scott Tallon spoke with Drive and said there are only so many companies out there developing performance SUVs and crossovers. "Performance leaning utility’ is a relatively new concept. There’s only been a few players in this space. So as this space develops there could be an opportunity for anyone to capitalise on it.”
Though no specific models were named and there are no immediate plans for additional Trackhawk models, the idea of a Renegade Trackhawk did intrigue him. Of course if that does come to pass, it’ll still have to meet Jeep’s internal benchmarks. Perhaps sporting the same 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine, the Renegade could deliver 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque.
Of course this is all speculation, but do let us know what Trackhawk SUV or crossover you’d like to see in the future.
