This is the ’18 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, caught testing in Northern Michigan.
The long-rumored Trackhawk will combine the Grand Cherokee with the 707hp Hellcat engine found in the Dodge Charger and Challenger. Jeep plans to compete with performance SUVs, such as the BMW X5 M, Range Rover Sport SVR and Mercedes GLE63 AMG.
The upcoming Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk is expected to have a 0–60-mph acceleration time of just 3.5 seconds, according to sources.
Jeep has also freshened the styling of the Grand Cherokee with a more aggressive front fascia. The company has hinted the Trackhawk will not replace the old Grand Cherokee SRT, but live above that model.
Expect to see the Trackhawk in showrooms in July 2017.
