The Hellcat-powered 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is finally here, all 707 horsepower accounted for

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is finally here.   With a claimed 0-60 MPH of just 3.5 seconds, and a mid-11 second quarter mile time, the earth-rotating Trackhawk is the world’s fastest SUV.

All 707 horsepower is accounted for, with torque now rated at 650 ft. lbs.  A beefed-up Quadra-Trac MP 3015C single-speed transfer case routes the enormous power and torque to all four wheels, with the help of an electronic limited slip differential, strengthened rear drive shafts and an 8-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission.

Adaptive Bilstein shocks help manage all the power through the high-performance suspension, resulting in the Trackhawk sitting a full inch lower than the normal Grand Cherokee.

Wheels are 20″ in diameter, 10″ wide – and are wrapped in 295-millimeter wide tires.

Stopping power comes in the form of Brembo six-piston calipers and 15.75″ rotors up front, four piston calipers and 13.73″ rotors in the rear.  Jeep claims the front brakes are the largest ever installed on one of their vehicles.

Stay tuned as more details come out of the 2017 New York Auto Show.
