    Jeep Grand Cherokee is currently the bestselling vehicle to wear it. FCA isn’t about to shut down its hot-rod-Jeep money mint, so the hi-po Grand Cherokee will now be known as the Trackhawk.

    Mercedes-Benz M-class, making it one of the few good things to come out of the disastrous DaimlerChrysler tie-up.

    supercharged Hellcat V-8 would eventually find its way into a few more engine bays. Paired with four-wheel drive, the 6.2-liter’s 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque could help the Grand Cherokee breach 60 mph in less than four seconds. Base 475-hp Trackhawk models will come with the naturally aspirated 6.4-liter V-8 that is used in today’s Grand Cherokee SRT.

    BMW X5 M; Land Rover’s new highest-performance model, the Range Rover Sport SVR; Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG; Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.

    What Might Go Wrong
    We hear that Jeep is struggling to blast-proof the Grand Cherokee’s driveline against Hellcat torque bombs. There are two obvious work-arounds: Engineers could electronically limit torque in lower gears or, less likely, just skip four-wheel drive.

    Estimated Arrival and Price
    Look for the first $65,000 Grand Cherokee Trackhawks at Costcos, gas stations, drag strips, and meetings of the South Jersey mafia starting in mid-2016.

    While this is interesting, I'm not sure it will happen. The awd drivetrain just can't handle the power. I am certain it won't be 65000 considering the current non supercharged jeep is 71-75k....that said I wonder if my wife would believe me if I told her it was a good winter ride?

    I paid $62.5k for my 15' srt8 brand new fully loaded. 71-75k is pretty high considering msrp is 65,890.

    A four wheel drive burn out would be awesome.
    Would it be the most powerful four wheel drive on the market ????

    They will get the drivetrain figured out. There are other SRT Jeeps out there running 700-1000hp, the just have to get the drivetrain to hold up in an economical, production friendly way.

    Not sure I could justify spending what will most likely be around 90k for the HC version.

    Now my wife could.. lol

    The placement of the Hellcat badge seems way off. Seems like it belongs on the door, where the body line indentation starts (above the lettering). Or, no badge at all.

    It's just an artists rendering. It's not indicative of the actual Trackhawk

    I'd prefer the Trackhawk over any of the other Hellcat offerings - only because I have kids and like road trips, but there's no way in hell (no pun intended) I would pay upwards of $90k for that.

    Definitely "guessing" at 90k but if you figure the HC price increase then...

    Bet I'm spot on though /wink.

    I've thought the same, figure a loaded Jeep pushes $70k, throw in the upgrades for a Hellcat powertrain and it will probably be $89,950 for a Hellcat Jeep
