The new Grand Cherokee is almost here. You can read the full review about the best-selling mid-size SUV in the USA. But, now we will focus on its most powerful version – 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The main strength and advantage of this model is its power source. A supercharged Hellcat engine is a beast. Only a handful of vehicles are offering this drivetrain capable to produce 707 hp. Not too many things will change under the hood of the upcoming SUV.
On the other hand, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is not all about the powertrain. Its cosmetic and interior upgrades are another reason for the hefty price. All in all, the performance-oriented model is adding more versatility to an already wide offer. Grand Cherokee will cost at the same level as its rivals, it will bring off-road Trailhawk model, and performance-tuned version, and Trackhawk SUV as the king of the class.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Hellcat Engine Specs
Under the bonnet of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk model is a popular Hellcat engine. This 6.2-liter Hemi unit is delivering 707 hp. Supercharged, it is everything but fuel friendly. Add 650 pound-feet of torque to it, and you will know why gas mileage is so poor. With 12/18 mpg, it will hardly attract a single buyer.
Top Speed, 0-60 Sprint
On the other hand, a huge amount of power will make the performance of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk explode. Max speed for the SUV is limited to 180 mph. While sprinting to 60 mph it stops the clock at 3.5 seconds. That is faster than its stablemate Alfa Romeo Giulia can do. For a quarter mile, it needs 11.5 seconds.
Not only the engine makes 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk so attractive. The entire system is (almost) perfect. When you step on the brake, the SUV will need only 110 feet to stop from 60 mph speed. Only Lamborghini Aventador and Lotus Evora can do it better. Furthermore, you will find damping adaptive system very helpful if you get lost in tough terrain conditions. For various situations, there are five drive modes.
Auto mode adapts to any situation. Sport setup will make road runs more fun with quicker shifts, enabled paddle shifters, and few more tunings. If you need the best performance, switch to Track mode. Tow configuration will maximize the towing capacity. A 6.2-liter engine can pull up to 7,500 pounds. Finally, maximized traction is coming with a Snow mode. As its name says, it is perfect for icy conditions.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Price, Competition
Watching from the outside, only unique wheels and small badges will be a difference between 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and SRT mode. Inside, the luxury SUV is packed with the latest Uconnect infotainment, large touchscreen display, leather seats with heating and cooling, and many more premium features. Also, watch for the fog lights – Trackhawk Hellcat model doesn’t have these.
Even without this part, the price of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be hefty. After updates, $90,000 price tag becomes a reality. That will make Jeep’s SUV a serious competitor to SVR models of Range Rover, and AMG versions SUVs by Mercedes-Benz.
