Jeep SRT Hellcat review- Part 3

Jeep Hellcat Release Date

This is the final part of the review for the Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk. Please read the first 2 parts to find out about its build and engine.

Price

These details are yet to be released but rumors suggest that the 2017 Hellcat will be around $65,000 – $80,000. The price does a bit steep for an SUV but considering that it has 707 hp and is one of most powerful and street-legal SUV, it seems worth it. Not to mention that their competitors offer 150 hp less but have prices around $100,000.

Competitors

The Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk faces competition from the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. The Range Rover comes with a 5.0L, V-8 engine that has 550 hp. It’s the fastest SUV released from Land Rover and can hit 60mph in 4,5 seconds. It comes with impressive handling and has recorded an impressive time of 8 minutes and 14 seconds on the Nurburgring track.

The Cayenne is currently setting the standards for SUV performance with it’s 4.8L V8 engine and 550 pounds of twist. It handles like a sports car and has better 60mph time than the Range Rover at 4.1 seconds. It also has a greater top speed at 173mph.

Both these cars make for great driving but are at least $30,000 more expensive than the Hellcat. They also have lesser horsepower and a higher 60mph time. With all this in mind, the Hellcat looks like a steal.

Jeep SRT Hellcat review- Part 2

Jeep Hellcat Release Date

This is part 2 of a 3-part review. Please read Part 1 before continuing.

Interior

The interior is set to be styled the same way as others in the Hellcat family with a few small changes. The steering wheel will become a flat-bottom unit with a slightly thicker rim. The seats will have heating and cooling along with more aggressive sculpting for more comfort. The rest of the features expected to be standard with a touch screen infotainment system, an upgraded stereo and a U-connect system for navigation.

The rear is packed with plenty of cargo which can be improved even further thanks to the folding rear seats. Enhanced safety bags and seat belts are also expected to improve safety.

Performance

Like the rest of the Hellcat series, the TrackHawk will come with a 6.2L, V8 engine with 707 horsepower and 650 pound feet of torque. A ZF 8-speed automatic transmission system ensures that the power is equally distributed all wheels.

This mean that the Hellcat can go from 0-60 in 4 seconds with a top speed of around 200 mph.

If this is too much to handle, you can opt for the Grand Cherokee base version that comes with a 6.4L V8 engine that produces only 475 horsepower and a top speed of 160 mph. This is the current engine on the Grand Cherokee SRT, so you can get all the features of the Hellcat with a little lower power that you can handle.

Jeep SRT Hellcat review- Part 1

Jeep Hellcat Release Date

Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed that a brand new Grand Cherokee Hellcat is in the making. The new version is set to be called Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk and is estimated to start production in July 2017. For those unfamiliar with the term, Jeep uses naming terms like TrailHawk for hardcore off-road models. Here is an in-depth look at the car to get you prepared for the launch:

Exterior

The exterior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat is similar to that of Charger Hellcat.

Reports suggest that the TrackHawk will be built on the same skeletal system as the Mercedes Benz M-Class. However, the engineers are facing problems protecting the drive-line from the powerful engine’s torque bombs.

The exterior is set to have the 3 signature scoops on the hood and will upgrade to a larger front end for better airflow and cooling.

Other visual changes include bigger wheels and wheel flares, bigger brakes, smoked headlamp glass and a light body kit. All of this will make it comfortable to ride on all terrains.
