But now they can, with the introduction of the new 707-horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, set to be be unveiled at the New York Auto Show this week. “Jeep Grand Cherokee is now the most powerful and quickest SUV as well, with the introduction of our new 707-horsepower Trackhawk,” said Mike Manley, head of the Jeep brand at FCA. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will go on sale by the end of the year but pricing has not yet been announced. NEW YORK — Most Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs never go off-road.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk: The 707-horsepower SUV you’ve always wanted is here
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be built in Detroit, Michigan and will be available late in 2017. At next week’s New York Auto Show, Jeep will unveil what is undoubtedly one of the most bonkers SUVs ever, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Today’s Grand Cherokee SRT ekes a mere 470 pound-feet of torque out of its V8 engine. No official word on pricing, but the lesser Grand Cherokee SRT starts at around $67,000 and we expect a dealer premium on this one, suggesting a base price of around $80,000. Track mode tightens up those shifts even more and sends even more power to the rear in a 30/70 split.
“The Jeep Grand Cherokee is now the most powerful and quickest SUV as well,” Mike Manley, head of Jeep brand, said in a news release. Now it will be plugged into the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk that will be revealed to the media at the New York International Auto Show on Wednesday. “The new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk delivers astounding performance numbers … with luxury, refinement and an array of innovative advanced technology.”Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds. Built in Detroit at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will arrive in Jeep showrooms towards the end of this year. The Hellcat engine is made with a cast-iron block and a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surfaces.
