Jeep Confirms Hellcat-Powered Grand Cherokee to Dealers, Reveals 0–60 Time

image.jpg

Jeep gave its U.S. dealers a sneak peek at the hottest machine in its upcoming lineup: the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee SRT Trackhawk. Yes, it’s real.

The Hellcat-ified Grand Cherokee, which we’ve been telling you about for a while now, was shown to Fiat-Chrysler dealers during the automaker’s annual dealership meeting in Las Vegas yesterday, Automotive News reports. As it will pack the 707-hp 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 found in Dodge’s neck-snappiest Challenger and Charger, Jeep told the assembled vehicle peddlers that the all-wheel-drive SRT Trackhawk will accomplish the zero-to-60-mph sprint in an astounding 3.5 seconds. For the record, the quickest such time posted in our last mega-SUV comparison test was 4.0 seconds, by the BMW X5 M. Timing for the Trackhawk’s arrival wasn’t confirmed, but our latest intelligence suggests it will be on the road by next summer.

It’s also much quicker than the already superquick Grand Cherokee SRT, whose 475 ponies hustled it to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds in our test. It’s also about as far removed from the original Jeep mandate—rugged off-road capability—as a vehicle can get, but we’re not complaining. As far as we’re concerned, the more Hellcats the better.

Isn't there a software update for our cars to lower our 0-60 times
Wow I'm not sure, you mean like changing the RPM limiters and when it shifts per gear?

There would be a lot of GTR owners getting upset if our cars were AWD......
LOL I think some are upset already with our RWD
