He wasn’t joking, though, and the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is a deadly serious machine – such is the depth of engineering that has gone into it – although it will have you giggling like a schoolkid.
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a supercharged 707 horsepower engine that produces 645 lb-ft of torque. The torque is five lbs less than the Hellcat, but the rest of the setup is similar – with the exception of the AWD system. Jeep has gone through a lot of trouble to significantly beef up its AWD system and eight-speed automatic transmission to handle such power.
Jeep represents one of the automotive industry’s greatest success stories and the most valuable brand in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ portfolio, according to a recent report by Adam Jonas, an analyst with Morgan Stanley Research.
You may be starting to get the idea that the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is a bit different than other Hellcats while also being the world’s most ridiculous SUV. You’d be right.
