Jeep’s Hellcat powered Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has been spotted before, but they were exterior shots and we sometimes wonder if what we’re seeing is really the Trackhawk or an SRT version. Now we have confirmation as the latest batch of spy shots includes one with the engine peeking out from under the hood.

As you can see from LeftLane News’ album, hidden in the vehicle’s engine bay is the same supercharger 6.2-liter, HEMI V8 found in the Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat models. If Jeep decides to leave the engine as is, the TrackHawk could boast a power output of 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

But we have noted previously that a common problem with high output engines like the Hellcat is heat soak. Jeep could avoid this problem by detuning the engine to crank out around 600hp, which is still nothing to sneeze at.

Another difference between the TrackHawk and the other two Hellcat models is its expected all-wheel drive system. Combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the TrackHawk could sprint from 0-60 in around 3 seconds.

Aside from what’s under the engine, the TrackHawk looks similar to the Grand Cherokee except for a few differences including the missing fog lights, extra air vents in the front and a more aggressive rear facia.

Expect to see Jeep unveil the new 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk at the New York auto show next month.

Still not confirmed officially though so I'm gonna keep an open mind to it. Would I like all of that and more... yup. But unfortunately, may not be possible so can't hold your hopes too high.

I'll take this with a grain of salt, much like the Wrangler image that came out recently since they could have been easily fabricated/photoshopped to come out like this. With the events coming up its easy for someone to create and release these then suggest it holds some real weight.

Give it a month or two after owners get these in hand and we'll see them being upgraded very quickly. I'm sure most of everything, if not everything from the initial hellcats can be used for it. Apparently the 5lb-ft torque drop was only due to exhaust re-routing.

I understand quite a few things were "re-routed" or relocated during the packaging of the 6.2 into the Jeep. The hellcat aftermarket may not be a direct fit, so aftermarket and tuners, be sure to check first. I know the oil pan is different (larger) for one.
