Jeep will continue offering the Grand Cherokee SRT for 2015MY, could be renamed Trackhawk in 2016

Hints regarding Chrysler Group’s plans for the SRT versions of the Chrysler 300 and Jeep Grand Cherokee are beginning to surface. For one, Chrysler have told dealers that they can order the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT for MY2015, which means this model would still be built and offered at least for that model year.

Chrysler Group, however, filed in July for a trademark on the name Trackhawk, which according to a source of Automotive News, could be used to dub the new Cherokee SRT as the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in 2016. No final decision has been made.

The Grand Cherokee SRT -- Jeep's highest-priced base model -- is powered by a 475-hp, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. To celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2016, Jeep is planning to build special editions of its vehicles.

Currently, Jeep is using a similar tag – Trailhawk – to dub off-road versions of the Cherokee and the Renegade small SUV. In the 2013 model year, Jeep produced a Trailhawk version of the Grand Cherokee but discontinued it for 2014, a spokeswoman for the brand said.

Chrysler will continue sales of the Chrysler 300 SRT in a number of right-hand-drive countries next year, excluding North America. The carmaker is refreshing the Chrysler 300 for 2015, according to the brand's five-year business plan.
