2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk—The Practical Hellcat

While the New York Auto Show was the venue where the Dodge SRT Demon was unleashed, we’ll get to that in a minute. While the Jeep brand didn’t upstage Dodge with the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, they certainly blew our socks off. Even though we knew it was coming, you gotta admit the idea of a 707-hp Jeep model is still hard to wrap ones’ head around.

But it’s here, all 707 ponies of it. But that’s not even the best part. Unlike the Hellcat twins, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk comes practically-equipped with a rear-wheel drive biased AWD system. In normal driving conditions, 60-percent of the 645 lb-ft of twist is sent rearward, while 40-percent goes forward. This changes depending on driving mode, with Snow mode offering a 50/50 split. Although practicality comes standard with every Grand Cherokee model, this one was designed to be both that, and a track beast.

Stay tuned to our blog to learn about the SRT Demon. If you’re here looking for another new Jeep model, contact our showroom in Odessa, TX at your convenience. We’d be happy to schedule you for a test drive.
