This In-depth Look at the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Is as Awesome as We Dreamed


The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is insane. It's the most powerful SUV on the market. That's because Chrysler took the supercharged V8 engine from the Hellcat and slipped it into the mid-size SUV, giving the people over 707 horsepower to tool around with. Yeah, they definitely weren't messing around here.

But, there's more where that came from. To offer a more in-depth idea of what the Trackhawk is exactly working with, car reviewer Doug DeMuro took 25 minutes back in December 2017 to walk his YouTube viewers through everything they could possibly want to know about the Trackhawk.


There are a host of impressive features on the Trackhawk, from its ability to go 0-60 in three seconds flat to the fact that Chrysler never got around to actually putting a speed limiter in the car, making it perfect for cutting loose at top speed on the weekend without having to worry about space when you pick the dog up to go to the park.

DeMuro even hits on the important distinctions between the new Trackhawk and the Trailhawk. After all, you don't want to start spouting off info about the wrong Jeep when you see one of these monsters at the gas station.

Of course, the Jeep does have some drawbacks, namely its terrible fuel economy. That being said, fuel efficiency probably isn't a huge motivating factor for someone looking to buy this SUV. After all was said and done, the Trackhawk earned a 69 out of 100 from DeMuro. Now the question remains: Is it worth $98,000?
