The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is here, and it’s here with a flourish as Jeep is calling the SUV the most powerful and quickest SUV ever.

With a 707hp supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine from a Hellcat, a blinding 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a quarter mile time of 11.6  — this could be more than hyperbole.

And, the SUV is strong, with a towing capacity of 7,200 pounds, so it’s more than just a performance vehicle.

“The Jeep Grand Cherokee is now the most powerful and quickest SUV as well,” Mike Manley, head of Jeep brand, said in a news release. “The new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk delivers astounding performance numbers … with luxury, refinement and an array of innovative advanced technology.”

The Detroit Free Press noted this other equipment:

  • A new Brembo braking system. It’s 15.75-inch, two-piece vented rotor front brakes have six-piston calipers and are the largest ever on a Jeep.
  • A strengthened rear drive shaft connects to a new, stronger rear axle.
  • Torque is delivered to the rear wheels via new ultra-high-strength steel half-shafts.
  • Air sources for the supercharger include a cold-air scoop in the lower front grille, which replaces the driver’s-side fog lamp.
  • A beefed-up front suspension with coil springs and stronger control arms.

The Trackhawk is expected to cost about $80,000.
