Hawking Tracks: The 707-hp Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is Still Practical

Even in the Trailhawk model we mentioned in our last blog posts, practicality comes standard with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The cargo space, upscale appointments and tech are all there. But what happens when you dial the performance knob to 707? That’s the horsepower numbers of the first-ever Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which houses the same supercharged HEMI as Dodge’s SRT Hellcats.

Although just as powerful as the Dodge twins, the Trackhawk has an AWD system that is biased towards RWD in normal mode: 60 percent of power goes aft, 40 percent forward. Driving modes like Track (30/70), and Snow (50/50) allow you to further tailor this delivery. All told, the Trackhawk can hit 60 in 3.5 seconds, and slows down with the largest front brake rotors ever seen on a Jeep model. We’re sure owning it will be a blast!

To explore what the Trackhawk is made of, you may have to wait until it arrives in showrooms later this year. In the interim, contact our Jeep model dealership in Roseburg, OR to put down your name, and we’ll let you know when it becomes available.
