I’m not sure if this is a widely spread sentiment or if me and my friends are just incredibly big nerds but personally, we have been incredibly excited about the coming of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The SUV is ready and willing to pack a punch of 707 supercharged Mopar horsepower, a number that should sound familiar to you if you remember being pelted with the endless marketing for the Hellcat lineup that was repeatedly shoved down our throats. For some reason, we just couldn’t resist the thought of seeing this big and burly forced induction v8 being launched with reckless abandon with all four wheels throwing power to the ground in a Jeep’s body.
Now, with a starting price of $85,900, this thing is kind of ridiculously expensive, even for the SRT nameplate. In addition, that’ll only account for the MSRP but also, you want to think about all that money that the dealerships are to be pocketing when they mark these things up. In that aspect, it’s probably not something that’s going be very comparable to the Chevrolet Camaro SS and Ford Mustang GT.
However, when you consider the fact that this thing is about as aerodynamic as that 15-year-old refrigerator in your garage and probably comes with that good old fashioned Mopar stamp of “this thing weighs way more than it probably should,” the results that come about are wickedly impressive. If you don’t agree, you’re probably sipping on some steaming hot bias soup.
