Just when we reached a dead point in Trackhawk GC news, a spotting appeared online recently, this time looking very close to production spec. Pictures and information below:

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is coming. We know this, because Mike Manley, the head of Jeep, said so. We showed you this brief spy video a while back, but now we have our clearer images of the Trackhawk undergoing testing.

And it looks just like a normal Grand Cherokee SRT. Yeah, anti-climactic, we know. The four shots we have show a bit of camo over the front bumper and grille, likely concealing a tweaked design or visible bits of the 6.2-liter, supercharged V8. It looks like there's a rather substantial opening below the upper grille, almost like a ram-air system. There's also a smidge of what looks like tape on the front wheel arches, although this might not mean much of anything.

What's interesting is what isn't here. There's no perceivable change to the back of the car. The exhaust pipes look like they're about the same size, there's no noticeable changes to the aerodynamics, and in fact, there's not even any camouflage. Jeep also hasn't updated the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk's hood, which is somewhat surprising considering the changes for every other Hellcat-equipped vehicle (concepts included).

I am almost more interested in haring what it sounded like driving around instead of just seeing it. You would definitely be able to tell if it is the Trackhawk by the sound of the engine.

Well there was that one video of it spied where it got into the frame for about a few seconds.

But being the Hellcat engine you can always listen to the Challenger and Charger Hellcat models, you'll get the same thing out of that.

It's true. You can listen to the Hellcat engine in those other vehicles, but there is something about the sound mated to the Grand Cherokee model that is different in terms of seeing this come together. Even seeing the Hellcat in that Wrangler concept is better since you get to hear the Hellcat in a Jeep.

But that has nothing to do with what you wanted, you wanted to hear how it sounds and you were presented a solution.

What makes it being in a different body so different?
