We have some good news and some great news. The new good news is that Jeep set a base price for the all-new and outstanding 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the great news is it’s under $100K. According to the official information, the price starts at $86,995, including destination fee. Now taking into account that you are getting the fastest available SUV for the money, the price isn’t too high at all.
Even though it’s pretty important, the 0-60 acceleration of just 3.5 seconds isn’t everything you will get from the SUV. No, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will bring so more. The amazing off-road high-riding vehicle comes mated to an amazing 6.2-liter supercharged V8, so-called Hellcat engine, which delivers 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of twist. The power runs all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Judging by the official results, the crossover will be able to cross a quarter of a mile for 11.6 seconds, while top speed stays limited to 180 mph.
But don’t you worry about the speed, because the wheels feature large Brembo brakes, which stop the SUV from 60 mph in just in 114 feet. More precisely, the front wheels are 15.75-inch two-piece vented rotors with 6-pistons calipers, while in the rear wheels use 13.78-inch vented rotors. Though, you will pick whether you will tear of Pirelli 295/45Z R20 Verde all-seasons or Pirelli P Zero three-season tires by hitting the brake at high speeds.
Although it uses the all-wheel drive, the SUV gets the majority of power to the rear wheels. The carmaker managed that with a limited-slip differential in the rear and with an improved full-time active transfer case with forged steel chain sprockets.
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be available for purchase on August 10 at most Jeep dealerships.
