We’ve been hearing whispers that Jeep has a Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee TrackHawk planned for quite some time now, however some concrete evidence of the model’s future arrival has arisen this week, Automotive News reports.
At Fiat-Chrysler’s biannual dealer meeting in Las Vegas, dealers were reportedly shown the Grand Cherokee TrackHawk in full. Not only that, but FCA also boasted the all-wheel drive performance SUV would have a 0-60 mph time of around 3.5 seconds, which would make it faster to 60 than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and BMW X5 M.
To help prep the weighty Grand Cherokee for performance driving duty, TrackHawk models will also be outfitted with two-piece brake rotors and new aluminum suspension components, among other upgrades. Just like the Hellcat Challenger and Charger, model exclusive wheels and other small design alterations may also be in store.
Considering the Challenger and Charger Hellcat both top $65,000 and the Grand Cherokee is more expensive than both the Challenger and Charger to begin with, it’s unlikely the TrackHawk will be a bargain. An MSRP of $79,999 is rumored, and with a low production run expected, TrackHawks will likely list for much more once they hit dealers.
