2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk First Drive

What happens when you toss a Hellcat and a Grand Cherokee in a blender? The 2018 Trackhawk. This Grand Cherokee is yet another demonstration that nobody does crazy like FCA. 707 horsepower? Check. 8.1 inches of ground clearance? Of course. Wider tires? Sure, but nothing crazy. Then slap on an 8-speed automatic out of a V12 Rolls Royce and a strengthened AWD system and you have a 5,400 pound SUV that can beat a Nissan GT-R at the stoplight races… As long as the Nissan doesn’t engage launch control. 0-60 happens in 3.4 seconds followed by a 1/4 mile in 11.6 and all of this can be yours for $85,900. Assuming you can find a dealer willing to sell it for MSRP. Sounds crazy? It sure it but this crazy will cost you half of what Porsche would charge for an SUV that’s slower. Now that’s insane.

0-30: 1.1 Seconds

0-60: 3.5 Seconds

1/4 Mile: Not Tested

60-0 Braking: 120 Feet
