The fastest SUV in the world now has a price tag. Jeep has announced a base price of $86,995 (including destination) for the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk; those interested can begin submitting their order on August 10th at the nearest Jeep dealership.
The all-new Trackhawk is powered by Fiat Chrysler’s well-known Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 with a staggering 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. If those statistics sound familiar that’s because the engine is being borrowed from the iconic SRT Hellcat cars for Jeep duty.
All of that power flows exclusively through an upgraded TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic that channels an upgraded Quadra-Trac all-wheel-drive system. Additional Trackhawk exclusive hardware includes huge Brembo brakes, Launch Control and an overall strengthened chassis to handle all of the power this monster features.
The upgraded hardware and beastly powertrain propel this grocery-getter from zero to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds according to Jeep.
“The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk delivers astounding performance numbers, backed by renowned SRT engineering that combines world-class on-road driving dynamics with luxury, refinement, and an array of innovative advanced technology,” said Head of Jeep, Mike Manley.
Not only is the Trackhawk’s on-track performance stellar, but it can still tow up to 7,200 pounds. Basically it can do about everything for under $90,000.
The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is slated to arrive in Jeep showrooms later this fall.
