The segment of the SUV does not stop growing in the whole world, but also, the sports versions of these models have more and more followers. Especially if we look at the American market because the United States has become one of the countries that most sports SUV is enrolling. Therefore, the brands are trying to launch to the market vitamin versions of its most representative roads and Jeep is one of those that could not miss this party.
Some time ago we told you that the signing of the seven bars was planning to officially present its Grand Cherokee Trackhawk at the New York Motor Show. This version is the most radical one that has the big SUV of Jeep in its catalog and of course they wanted to present it to its public in a country appointment. Therefore, the official confirmation of its arrival in the market is definitive and who knows, we might even see it in Europe.
Aesthetically the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk wins aerodynamic elements that allow it to cool its mechanical parts. The air intake located under the seven bars, the grill where the active speed control radar is located, or the slots under your headlights helps keep the Hellcat engine from running low on full power.
At the rear, you gain a new diffuser so that the rear end will stick even more to the ground. This section shows the four exhaust outlets located two to two on each side of the rear bumper. The rest of the aesthetic elements of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk do not change, because its design still enjoys the freshness and also a point “macarrilla” that we like so much.
Inside, the changes focus on better materials and more technology. The dashboard puts the revs in the center, and the 8.4-inch infotainment system incorporates the Trackhawk pages to control the telemetry of the model. The set closes a red Nappa leather upholstery with Trackhawk inserts; Which also extends through doors and some parts of the dashboard.
At the mechanical level, there is no novelty since it will mount the supercharged block in V8 configuration with 6.2 liters of displacement with 707 cv of power and a pair of 875 Nm (same that mount the Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat). With such a heart it is not surprising that it moves, at 0 to 100 kilometers per hour, the 2,433 kilos that weigh in only 3.5 seconds. Such potential is available on all four wheels thanks to an 8-ratio automatic gearbox, which is protected to assume the torque increase of the mechanics better.
I hope I get to Europe – and Spain – because I’m dying to take the glove.
