Jeep’s 707HP Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Looks Even Better In Silver

Jeep’s potent Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has premiered at the New York Auto Show and yes, it is absurd.

No one really needs an SUV with over 700 hp, but Jeep decided to make the vehicle anyway and we’re glad they did. Not only does it exemplify the booming demand for high-performance SUVs, but it also pushes the market into uncharted territories and sets the mark very, very high.

As you’ll well be aware, driving the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is FCA’s 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine.

Delivering the same 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque as it does in Challenger and Charger guises, the engine is a true bruiser and when mated to the vehicle’s all-wheel drive system, helps accelerate the Trackhawk from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds. The quarter mile then passes in a mere 11.6 seconds at 116 mph.

At New York, Jeep brought along the super-SUV in a sleek shade of Billet Silver. Far less overt than the dark red version, the color makes the Trackhawk look more unassuming. If you miss the huge Brembo brakes and quad tailpipes, it could easily pass for a regular Grand Cherokee SRT.

U.S. sales of the behemoth will start in the fourth quarter of this year. Pricing has yet to be announced.

    not loving those stitched stripes(?) on the seats and doors, they look like pulls in fabric. Personally i would’ve waited for the next gen GC but i guess this means it won’t be here any time soon so they might as well try and pull the last few sales from this thing… Not really getting an overly aggressive design from this, something you’d expect since it’s the most powerful production SUV. I think my G65 looks more aggressive than this.

    does the black under the headlights look like bags under an eye to anyone else?

    • Belthronding Tinuviel

      yeah, it looks lit bit insomniac with black under the headlights.

    I get it, Trailhawk and Trackhawk. Maybe it’s the wing logo that’s making me cringe. Ekkkkk

  • Mike

    I just traded in my 14 SRT. Averaged about 12 mpg and the tires were down to the metal in 19k miles… Buy 3, get 1 free, $2,000. I could afford it, I just couldn’t stomach it.. At 500hp, it was a beast, this thing is just insane
