Late last week we speculated whether Jeep would consider building a Trackhawk Renegade before the Hellcat powered Grand Cherokee. This week our ramblings were validated by Motor Authority who report the Renegade Trakhawk has been green lit.
Granted, take the news with a grain of salt as FCA refused to confirm, although there was no explicit denial. MA's source suggests that despite what the PR minions say the Renegade Trackhawk has been given the go ahead and should be expected for the 2018 model year (summer 2017).
As for motivation the rumors suggest a twin turbo 2.4L 4 cylinder, capable of some 300 horsepower. AWD would be standard, but which gearbox?
"We don't comment on future products." Got it...
