Article by Anita Panait, on September 7, 2012

Jeep will roll out in 2013 the production version of the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, which was unveiled as a concept at the 2012 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. Buyers could choose between two engine options for the 2013 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk: V-6 or V-8. The 2013 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk features these set of equipment: solid steel rock rail body protection; 18-inch Goodyear Silent Armor all-terrain tires with Kevlar reinforcement; and Quadra-Lift air suspension that gives the sports utility vehicle almost 11 inches of ground clearance.

The 2013 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is also fitted with a Selec-Terrain traction control system loaded with five settings: Snow, Rock, Sand/Mud, Sport and Auto. The SUV also boasts of a Rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD, V-8), which could transmit up to 100% of the engine’s torque to one rear wheel to keep the vehicle moving forward even in extreme conditions.

Fitted with either Quadra-Track II or Quadra-Drive II (V-8) with a two-speed transfer case, the Trailhawk could easily overcome toughest obstructions. The newest version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee could be easily recognized thanks to its signature red Trailhawk and Trail Rated badging and tow hooks.

Other distinctive features include black-surround headlamps and a distinct gray on the grille surround, side mirrors and rear light bar as well as 4x4 badge and five-spoke 18-inch aluminum wheels.

The Trailhawk is fitted with a black hood decal with a red accent stripe to help minimize glare from the sun. Trailhawk-specific interior features include black leather and performance suede seats with red accent stitching and Mopar slush floor mats front and rear. The 2013 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk could be availed in five different finishes: Bright White, Brilliant Black, Mineral Gray, Maximum Steel and Deep Cherry Red.
