2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk performance specs
It’s not much of a secret that Jeep and Dodge share the same parent company. While the former has become famous for building rugged and/or luxury SUVs, the latter is one of the most historically important manufacturers of high-performance muscle cars. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk blends both of those worlds together.
Under the hood of the new Trackhawk trim, Jeep is using a supercharged, 6.2-liter, V-8 engine attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The new powertrain will produce 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. In practical terms, this means that the newest member of the Jeep Grand Cherokee family can accelerate from zero-to-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds, hitting a top speed of 180 miles per hour. The new Trackhawk should have a peak towing capacity near the top of the vehicle’s range, which is currently measured at 7,400 pounds.
In addition to gobs of power being standard with the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, it’s also going to be one of the smartest kids in class. Jeep has upgraded the Uconnect infotainment system of the new version so it is now compatible with applications from the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto suites of applications.
