New Jeep Grand Cherokee Prices and Specifications

 
TMR Team | May, 31 2017 | 1 Comment

The speculation is over, Jeep Australia’s CEO has confirmed that the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, billed as the world’s fastest four-wheel drive, will be available in Australia before the end of 2017.

Fiat Chrysler’s Australian CEO, Steve Zanlunghi, confirmed the 527kW/874Nm supercharged halo model would line-up as a flagship variant of the recently updated Grand Cherokee range.

"I actually am going to confirm the fact the Trackhawk will be coming to Australia and it'll actually be here and on sale before the end of the year," Zanlunghi told assembled media at an event in New Zealand.

"The interest has been overwhelming," he said, "enough to make a business case."

At the heart of the Trackhawk, Jeep has deployed the same 6.2-litre supercharged V8 as used in the Challenger and Charger Hellcat twins, which until the recent arrival of the Challenger Demon held the title of the most powerful factory-built American muscle cars in history.

The Trackhawk's prodigious power output places it ahead of supercars such as the 522kW Bentley Continental Supersports, and 447kW Aston Martin DB11, although the 588kW Ferrari 812 Superfast, 530kW McLaren 720S and 544kW Lamborghini Aventador Surpass it.

Jeep has declared the Trackhawk to be the fastest SUV in the world, although from 0-100km/h the Tesla Model S P100D is quicker.

Pricing for the Trackhawk in Australia is yet to be confirmed, with early estimates putting it at around $140K, a significant step above the Grand Cherokee SRT and its 344kW naturally aspirated 6.4-litre V8.
