L Dear Porsche customers, dear AMG drivers, in brief A nasty surprise is waiting for you, it's called 'Trackhawk'. This is the name Jeep has named the most powerful Grand Cherokee of all time, which has been causing PS junkies to temporarily stop breathing in their home country since 2017. But now the riot boy is also coming to the old world, in the second quarter of 2018 he is supposed to enter the European stage. From then on there is a new king in the ring.
This self-confident announcement is made by the 6.2 liter supercharged V8, which up to now has already struggled in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to shape the axle shafts into corkscrews. This is more difficult for him in the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk for the simple reason that it has all-wheel drive and therefore has four erasers ready. 710 hp and 868 Nm of torque are the data for the European model. Two more chin hook values? Here you go: 3.7 seconds and 289 km /h.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can go up to 290 km /h
With this elemental force under the hood, in the future even proven power bums such as a GLE 63 AMG or a Cayenne Turbo will have to queue up at the rear traffic lights in order not to be eaten by the broad-shouldered American. It is not a lot of work, because the significantly enhanced Torqueflite eight-speed automatic takes care of the optimal switching point, a launch control for the perfect kick. The jeep driver doesn't have to worry about curves. In addition to the electronically controlled all-wheel drive, the adaptive Bilstein chassis ensures this. The giant also comes to a standstill quickly thanks to the largest braking system that a Jeep has ever driven: the brake discs measure 400 millimeters at the front and 350 millimeters at the rear,Six-piston calipers on the front axle and four pistons on the rear bite powerfully, the technology is provided by Brembo.
Of course, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has nothing more to do with off-road terrain than the previous top Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT he also no longer has an off-road reduction. Instead, the transfer case was upgraded with reinforced gears and a wider drive chain, and the rear axle got reinforced drive shafts and a reinforced differential. Nothing lightweight, which is why the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk weighs an impressive 2,531 kilos when ready to drive. Before a few sports car drivers start giggling: The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can also take 2.95 tons to the trailer hitch. Beat this, Ferrari!
