Here's a video of someone spotting a prototype of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk driving through the streets of Detroit. The Jeep apparently had a roll cage inside of it. The whine of the supercharger is also evident in certain parts of the video!
I'm pretty sure it's just because of the road noise, wind noise, etc. But I wish the cage came with it ! Even a half cage would be nice lol. But you're right, It won't be staying in there. Can't wait to see some full out track testing though, I want to see what the body roll is going to be looking like.
Wind noise, how far away the camera is combined with the TrackHawk moving at low RPM's and you won't hear much, that's how big engines are unless its at a standstill and you have a camera with a few feet of the exhaust. Most important thing is that we're seeing it here and its indeed happening.
That's definitely the main thing to take from this video. Getting kinda antsy just thinking about it. Gotta do some more searching up on the engine though to see what the gearing is like. See how low the rpms sit at cruising speeds, highway speeds, etc.
Too bad we haven't heard a single thing about it yet and right now the LA Auto Show is on, maybe at this point Car Makers are not yet done doing reveals, if that's the case we still have a chance to hear more this month, if not we'll have to wait for the next show. It's going to happen soon, we just need to be very patient.
At least there was that one video of a TH ripping it on a track before noticing a spy camera and stopping.
probably because it would bring in more questions than they have answers too, plus they need to keep the information roll out consistent in order to ensure potential buyers remain interested. Coming out with the information consumers need in line with the ability to order ensures you get those orders. Have to be strategic.
