Can Your SUV Handle a 707-Horsepower Engine?

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has always been king of the Jeep brand lineup. Do you need a spacious family vehicle?

It's got that.

Do you need off-roading prowess for unplowed Brattleboro area roads?

It's got that.

Do you crave the kind of class and luxury that's rarely paired with this level of utility?

You get the picture.

The one thing this SUV hasn't been is a track vehicle. By the end of 2017 that may change, as FCA endows the Grand Cherokee with its most powerful engine: the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® SRT Hellcat V8.

Tacking on the name Trackhawk and placing a Hellcat engine under the hood of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is the least of the designers' and engineers' troubles.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a dedicated Jeep 4x4, always intended to retain at least some amount of off-roading skill at all trim levels. There is an engineering reason, however, that the highest horsepower models are always rear-wheel drive.

Maintaining the option to have your Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk as a 4WD model is one of the challenges engineers must overcome before it is brought to market.

We're looking forward to seeing one of the world's fastest SUVs join our new inventory options at Summit Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Give us a call at (888) 687-2249 to inquire, or schedule a test drive.
