Jeep has for ages been the most powerful Brand names in SUVs, and now the most capable SUV is made by it.
The 2018 Grand Cherokee borrows the 707 hp supercharged V8 from the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcats even though it will not use their devilish name. This can be the very first time that the 6.2-liter supercharged motor has been paired with an all-wheel drive system, that has been strengthened to manage its 645 lb-ft of brute-force torque.
Not developed for off-roading the Trackhawk comes outfitted with a computer-controlled Bilstein flexible suspension system and five performance modes that tweak the trip stiffness, steering, 8-speed automatic transmission, AWD, limited-slip rear differential, etc., to fit the event.
When we talk about 2018 Grand Cherokee in track, the stability-control system loosens up the balance and traction-control methods to improved managing, while Tow is 60% entrance biased and controls the torque shipping for smooth take-offs from the boat dock and sends 70% of the power to the rear tires.
The Trackhawk’s low score is 7,200 lbs, but you are probably more intrigued In the other direction it hauls. Jeep claims it’ll do 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and protect one / 4 mile in 11.6 seconds on the on the road to an 180 mph top speed. The somewhat less-powerful Tesla Model X P100D may take it in the dragstrip, but the leading speed of the Trackhawk will abandon the electrical SUV breathing its fumes.
On the topic of breathing: the Trackhawk vented hood, and front fascia helps cool the motor and reduce aerodynamic lift at pace, as well as a set of 15.75-inch Brembo front brakes – the biggest ever fitted to a Jeep, slow the 5,363 lb beast down when you are done with the fun.
When 2018 Grand Cherokee goes on sale later this year, but it will come fully-loaded with leather inside, and all of the security and amusement tech goodies obtainable on the Grand Cherokee pricing for the Trackhawk has not however been declared. Based on the premium instructed by the Dodge Hellcats, the Trackhawk will probably start someplace above $80,000.
