The all new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is on its way and Jeep just released its price. The base Trackhawk will start at $2,000 more than the Dodge Demon with an MSRP of $86,995. Some may consider this expensive because after all, its just a Jeep, right?
A look at its competition paints a different picture. The Mercedes-Benz GLE63 AMG is a high end performance SUV just like the Trackhawk and it starts at $109,700. The GLE has only 577 horsepower and does 0-60 in 4.1 seconds. The Trackhawk with its famous 707 horsepower Hellcat engine will cover 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. Slightly closer in price we have the BMW X5M which starts at around $100,000 and is able to sprint to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat. Its engine produces 567 horsepower which is a whooping 140 horsepower less than the Grand Cherokee.
The Trackhawk will run an 11.6 in the quarter mile, top speed is a crazy 180 mph and its able to pull a 0.88 on the skid pad thanks to massive tires and AWD. This truck also barrows the same torque reserve launch control system we see in the Dodge Demon, it can tow 7,200 lbs, carry a bunch of people with luggage and most importantly do massive four-wheel burnouts.
If you’ve been in a new Grand Cherokee you know they are absolutely gorgeous inside and out. The price tag may be creeping up towards high end European territory but its not there yet and it won’t be surprising if these fly off showroom floors knowing how well anything Hellcat related sells.
Dealers will start taking order’s on August 10th and we should start to see some ridiculous burnout videos towards the end of the year when the first trucks are delivered.
