Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT could be rebadged as the Trackhawk

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 27, 2014

As you may know already, Chrysler Group’s SRT is associated with the high-performance Dodge models and in order to make things clear, it appears that the American manufacturer is planning to rename the Grand Cherokee SRT. Recently, Chrysler trademarked the ‘Trackhawk’ moniker and according to Allpar, this might be the new name for the high-performance SUV.

Still, there are no official details, but a Grand Cherokee Trackhawk sounds pretty good. Despite a new name, the new vehicle is expected to retain its 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that produces 470 hp and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. The engine pushes the SUV from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.8 seconds, while offering a top speed of 160 mph or 257 km/h.

Moreover, the Grand Cherokee SRT runs the quarter mile in mid 13-second range and is able to stop from 60 mph in just 116 feet of pavement. If you don’t know already, the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT is priced from $64,380.

There are plenty of rumors regarding a new engine for the upcoming Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and people are talking about the more potent 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat engine that generates a staggering 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.

We’d love to see that engine on the new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk but for now, it is just a rumor, and we will have to wait for some official news.
