Jeep Trackhawk: world’s fastest SUV will cost you $85,900
Jeep announces US prices for the Hellcat-engined, 707bhp Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is a numbers SUV. Numbers great and small. The small: it’ll do 0-60mph in 3.5s, pull a quarter mile in 11.6s and deliver 0.88g on the skid pad.
The great: it’ll produce 707bhp, max out at 180mph, and – now confirmed – cost $85,900.
Jeep has finalised the prices for what appears to be the world’s fastest and most powerful production SUV; a car that takes a supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 from a muscle car (the Hellcat), and straps it into its largest SUV.You’ll be able to order it tomorrow, with the first deliveries expected later this year. “There is no better value for a high-performance SUV,” Jeep’s Mike Manley explains.
So you’ve got the numbers, now for some detail. That HEMI V8 not only produces 707bhp, but also 645lb ft of torque, delivered via an eight-speed auto ‘box and Jeep’s ‘Quadra-Trac’ four-wheel-drive system, here featuring an electronic diff at the back and a single-speed transfer case.
There’s launch control, to better help you deliver that 0-60mph time of 3.5s, and yellow Brembo brakes – the largest ever offered on a Jeep – deliver 60-0mph in 114ft.
There’s a lower ride height. There’s a sculpted bonnet, blanked fog lights, many badges, 20in alloys, and gloss black detailing. Inside there is an 8.4in interior display, Jeep’s premium metal pack, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, soft-touch materials and a 7in driver display.
You want options? You’ve got options. Leather, a 19-speaker Harman-Kardon stereo, dual-screen rear entertainment, a trailer tow pack and red seatbelts.
So, $85,900. Consider that in the US, the list price of a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S – another exceptionally quick SUV – costs $160k. A BMW X5 M? $100k.
