2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a starting price of $85,900

Article by Christian A., on August 10, 2017

Jeep will open the order books for the new 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk on August 10, 2017 with a starting US Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $85,900. When the $1,095 destination is taken into account, the new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk gets a starting price of $86,995.

Since Jeep introduced the most powerful performance SUV – the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk – not a few were already wondering how much they need to take out from their wallets. This isn’t surprising considering that it would be hard to match the power emanating from its Hellcat V8 engine, pegged at more than 700 hp. With such a selling point, the starting MSRP for the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is justified.

Set to be built at Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, Michigan, the new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is a performance monster in the world of sports utility vehicles. Jeep has gifted the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with a 6.2 liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine that could deliver 707 hp (527 kW) of max output and 645 pound-feet (875 Newton-meters) of peak torque. This monstrous power level is more than enough to make the performance SUV – weighing around 5,363 pounds (2,433 kg) – sprint from nil to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and reach a quarter mile in only 11.6 seconds. In terms of top speed, the new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is able to go as fast as 180 mph (290 km/h). It could also tow as much as 7,200 lbs.

These power levels are sent to all wheels through a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, as made possible by the Jeep Quadra-Trac on-demand four-wheel-drive system that makes use of an electronic limited-slip rear differential as well as a single-speed active transfer case. This four-wheel drive could vary the front-rear torque split depending on the drive mode in the Selec-Track system, including 40-60 in Auto, 50-50 in Snow, 30-70 in Track, and a few other modes. Interestingly, drivers could adjust the front-rear torque split – through the Custom mode – according to their personal preference. Each of the five pre-set modes (Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow) controls the transmission, suspension and steering.

In addition, it features a set of 15.75-inch (400mm) Brembo brakes as well as 13.78-inch vented rotors, with the new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk being able to decelerate from 60 mph to a full stop in just 114 feet. It rides, as standard, on a set of 20 x 10-inch Titanium-finish wheels with a Satin Chrome center cap, as wrapped in new Pirelli 295/45ZR20 Scorpion Verde all-season or new Pirelli P Zero three-season tires.

Customers could have their 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk performance SUVs finished in any of nine exterior colors: Billet Silver, Bright White, Diamond Black, Granite Crystal, Ivory Tri-coat, Redline 2 (exclusive), Rhino (exclusive), True Blue and Velvet Red.
