Since the debut of the Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat models in late 2014, enthusiasts have been demanding that Fiat-Chrysler “Hellcat all the things.” While we’re probably still a ways off from a Fiat 124 Abarth Hellcat, the Grand Cherokee Hemi compatibility made it a likely candidate for Hellcatification.

You can order the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk at your local dealer at a starting price of $85,900 with deliveries slated to begin in the fourth quarter of this year.
