Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

The most powerful and quickest SUV ever

"Long recognized as the full-size SUV leader in capability."

"New Brembo braking system includes largest ever front brakes on a Jeep vehicle."

"0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and top speed rated at 290 km/h."

"Aggressive, functional exterior appointments include a unique quad-tip exhaust and redesigned fascia that optimizes airflow and cooling."

Injected with an unmatched 707 horsepower - courtesy of an awe-inspiring supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine - the most awarded SUV ever and the most capable full-size SUV on the planet has been transformed into the most powerful and quickest SUV ever.

The new benchmark 707-horsepower supercharged engine combines with an upgraded high-torque capacity TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, world-class on-road driving dynamics and new Brembo brakes to deliver a new level of performance: zero-to-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 290 km/h. Powering the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine delivering 707 horsepower and 875 Nm of torque.

The Selec-Track system on the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk uses performance-tuned software to pre-configure and distinguish the five dynamic modes including: Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow, enabling drivers to choose a vehicle setting that ideally meets their requirements and ambient conditions. The drive modes separately control the four-wheel drive system, transmission, paddle shifters, suspension and the electric power steering.

Dynamic drive mode configurations include:
• Auto - Automatically adapts to any condition; uses a 40 percent front/60 percent rear torque split
• Sport - Transmission shift times are reduced by 50 percent versus Auto mode; stability control, four-wheel drive and steering systems are set for typical enthusiast driving style; paddle shifters are enabled and suspension is tightened up without increasing impact harshness to deliver increased vehicle performance capability over Auto mode; uses 35/65 torque split
•Track - Transmission shift times are reduced 68 percent (versus Auto mode) to 160 milliseconds; stability control, four-wheel drive and steering systems are set for ultimate track performance; paddle shifters are enabled and suspension is set to full firm to deliver maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces; uses 30/70 torque split
• Tow - Alters torque delivery off the line for greater smoothness and adjusts suspension to combat pitch and yaw to deliver maximum towing performance; uses 60/40 torque split
• Snow - Maximizes traction to deliver optimized performance on snow and ice with reduced engine horsepower; uses 50/50 torque split.

Trackhawk also features a Custom mode that allows the driver to personalize the vehicle's performance with a selectable driving experience offering a multitude of vehicle system combinations.

Exterior
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk rides one inch lower than non-SRT Grand Cherokee models and is further set apart with body-colored wheel flares, side sill cladding and a sculpted hood with dual heat extractors.

The signature seven-slot upper front grille is flanked by adaptive, bi-xenon headlamps and surrounded by an LED character lamp treatment. The headlamps on the Trackhawk model feature a unique gloss black background to accent their jewel-like appearance.

The fog lights are absent from the Trackhawk's front fascia to optimize airflow to cooling modules and air induction without compromising the vehicle's balance.

From behind, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk features a unique gloss black rear valence that showcases four-inch black chrome quad exhaust tips. The new quad exhaust system design provides an exhilarating and unmistakable note during maximum acceleration.

A "Supercharged" badge on both front doors and a "Trackhawk" badge on the liftgate features a Liquid Titanium Chrome outline and Matte Black background.

New standard 20 x 10-inch Titanium-finish wheels with a Satin Chrome center cap showcase the distinctive yellow calipers underneath. Available lightweight 20 x 10-inch forged aluminum low gloss black wheels save a total of 12 pounds versus the standard Trackhawk wheel. Grand Cherokee Trackhawk also features all-new Pirelli 295/45ZR20 Scorpion Verde all-season and new Pirelli P Zero three-season tires with an increased speed rating.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is available in nine exterior colors: Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Diamond Black, Ivory Tri-coat, Bright White, Velvet Red, Rhino (exclusive), Redline 2 (exclusive), and True Blue.

Interior
The driver-focused interior features premium soft-touch materials, unique Light Black Chrome finishes and carbon fiber spears, and a seven-inch driver information display (DID) instrument cluster, which features the tachometer in the middle. The 200-mph speedometer is on the left side of the cluster.

The instrument panel center stack with new 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen features Trackhawk-exclusive Performance Pages that showcase an array of performance timers and gauge readouts, including a new engine dynamometer screen that measures instantaneous horsepower, torque and current transmission gear. The dynamometer screen also includes a new snapshot function for owners to save their readouts on a USB.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk's three-spoke steering wheel with a flat bottom features a bevy of comfort, convenience and connectivity controls and ergonomically efficient paddle shifters.

The Trackhawk features standard Nappa leather and suede seats with an embroidered ‘Trackhawk' logo. A fully wrapped Signature Leather Interior Package with ‘Trackhawk' embossed on the seats, optional in black and Trackhawk-exclusive black and Dark Ruby Red is available. Seats are also heated (front and rear) and ventilated (front). Dark Ruby Red seatbelts and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof are also available options.

A new Premium Metal Package is standard and enhances the Trackhawk's interior with various upscale real metal accents. Additional premium interior features include: standard Active Noise Cancellation; premium headliner; leather stitched instrument panel, doors, center console and armrest; Berber floor mats with Trackhawk badge and available dual screen rear seat entertainment center with Blu-ray. There is a choice of two audio systems, including an 825-watt Harman Kardon high-performance audio system with 19 speakers and two subwoofers.
