Jeep reveals outrageous new Trackhawk

Jeep has lifted the lid on an extreme version of its Grand Cherokee.

Called the Trackhawk, it has a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 under the bonnet that produces 707bhp, making it the most powerful SUV ever.


The performance figures are impressive, 0-60mph takes just 3.5 seconds and the top speed is 180mph.

As standard the Trackhawk comes with a Brembo braking system that allows the car to travel from 60mph to 0 in 114 feet.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has 875nm of torque, meaning it is capable of towing weights up to 7,200 pounds, handy for towing a caravan or small boat.

On the outside, the Trackhawk has a very aggressive stance with a bodykit and titanium 20-inch alloy wheels. Bi-xenon headlamps and all-round LED lights give the car real road presence.

Inside, you can select from five driving modes with each calibrated to cope with various weather and road conditions. These include auto, sport, track, tow and snow.

The cabin features a full leather interior available in a variety of colours and a full-length panoramic sunroof. An 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen sits within the centre console and features various options showing timers and gauge readouts.

This is further enhanced by a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel with mounted gearshift paddles.

Launch control is also standard, for those wanting to take their Trackhawk to the limit on a racing circuit.

There are 70 different safety and security features dotted around the car. One that stands out is the rear trailer hitch camera. This allows the driver to make sure that the trailer is attached properly while in motion.

Prices and a release date are yet to be announced.
