2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Will Make Porsche Uncomfortable

By  | 

We never thought that we will see the day when a Jeep model will make Porsche uncomfortable but based on what the upcoming 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, we might finally see that happening soon.

While most of the Jeep model will have nothing against the Porsche, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has always been in the league of its own and now with the new Trackhawk model, the vehicle could easily become a real threat.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be coming in with the Hellcat engine that will be offering about 707hp and 645lb ft of torque. The engine will be mated to an eight-speed Torqueflite transmission and will be able to tow about 72000 lbs.

On the outside, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be coming in with a few changes like the air inlets inside of the fog lamps and a new black chrome quad exhaust tips in the back.

The vehicle will also come with a new Supercharged badge and Trackhawk badge to make sure it won’t be mistaken for any other model.

As impressive as its sound, the interior is the one that blew our hats off. The interior is all about being luxurious and premium. The Trackhawk will be fitted with Nappa Leather and suede seats, those looking for more can opt for the Signature Leather package. Metal trim will come as standard, so is the Berber floor mats.

The Trackhawk will come with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto support on their 8.4inch Uconnect touchscreen. We are still waiting for Jeep to announce the price but it is estimated to retail for $84K.

Do you think Porsche should be worried?
