The 700bhp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk costs £90k
Many bangs for many bucks: here's a Jeep that'll do 0-62mph in 3.7s
For so long the Porsche Cayenne Turbo was playing alone in the super SUV sandpit. Then along came the Range Rover Sport SVR, and just a few months ago, the Lamborghini Urus. With 641bhp and 627lb ft that must rightly have expected to sit on top of the SUV power table for a good while.
But no. Because Jeep has decided to bring the Trackhawk to the UK. Officially. Dealer sanctioned, warrantied and so on. We’re told 20 will be available by the end of this year, with up to 100 being offered in total, each priced at £89,999. About half what an Urus costs and with all the performance. OK, OK, the figures say the Urus is 10mph faster (190mph) at the top end and 0.1secs faster to 62mph (3.6secs), but it doesn’t roll out of the showroom boasting over 700 brake, does it?
The Trackhawk does. Just. 710PS equates to 700.2bhp. Plus there’s 640lb ft of torque from the supercharged V8. Standard kit includes leather trim everywhere, Brembo brakes with yellow calipers (for a 62-0mph stopping distance of 37 metres), and 825-watt 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, adaptive cruise, surround cameras, 20in titanium finish wheels, Apple Carplay and Android Auto, and Bilstein adaptive dampers. But most importantly a vast, rowdy 6.2-litre forced induction V8 and over 700bhp.
Bring on the drag race, we say. What’s your money on?
