And I didn't mention cost.
Lots of info at jeepgarage.org
Of course they could, it is not an engineering impossibility, but, the cost to build a system that could handle the torque + AWD launches would drive up the cost of the car. That would put it out of their comfort zone. They have a really good idea about what they can charge (MSRP) and still sell out. The current 392 comes very close to 80K. Imagine what it would cost if they built it at 100%, probably well over 6 figures. You have to know your limits.
The $80k is with every option...Base is just below $67k.
Hearing the trackhawk will get new led tails and the leather upgrade treatment will be an option. The facia will also get gloss black inserts.
True, base is below 67K and loaded does come close to 80K. The Hellcat version will most likely base close to 10K more.
4:46 mark trackhawk will be at new york
There you go, it has been confirmed, how cool is that. Damn, I wish I could make New York, wow. I like Manley, he keeps his nose to the grindstone and gets things done. Jeep is unbeatable. Two all new products (Wrangler and Compass) and a third all new model (Trackhawk), coming out to the public in one year. Why hasn't that happened for Dodge and Chrysler?
maybe because the Jeep already has the platforms versatile enough for such new products.
Chrysler has the Pacifica and Dodge has Hellcat Updates and Demon models along with a Durango SRT. waiting for the Giorgio Platforms for cars. Dont act like there isnt anything new for the 2....
I had this long ranting response but I changed my mind. If I don't type something, something weird happens to my reply box. Sorry.
Some fun Trackhawk facts for you all...
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk...
Will have the least amount of horsepower out of the HELLCAT/Demon variants of the 6.2L. It will have less than 707 horsepower.
It will have the second fastest 0-60mph time, behind the SRT Demon in "Drag Mode".
It will be the third fastest HELLCAT variant vehicle from what I am told.

Trackhawk will also be available in LHD and RHD models... it will be the first HELLCAT variant to be sold outside NAFTA from FCA US.
You are missing the bigger picture.
I should have stated it will have more than 600 horsepower as well, but less than the 707 on the Challenger and Charger SRT HELLCATs.
650 is my guess. Should run an 11 second 1/4 mile? 3 second 0-60?
I'll be picking up the 2017 Jeep SRT 392 or the 2018 Jeep Trackhawk after the April unveiling to replace my 2012 Jeep SRT with 95K miles. I'll decide after I see the Trackhawk on which one. But in the interim, the pros/cons of each as I see it as a buyer:
Quickest SUV on the planet/bragging rights;
Newest best thing.
Cons: No active exhaust like on the Hellcats
Dealer markup and higher MSRP cost
No more SRT branding (major con for me)
Having to wait until the fall or even winter to get one of these;
This is (per my readings on allpar) the LAST model year of the WK2, so this 2018 TH will already be outdated in 1 year with the WK3....especially if the 2019 also has a TH model. This is the biggest con IMO.
Pros: is fast enough
Huge discounts of 6K+ off MSRP available
Going from 5speed in the 12 to the 8speed in the 17 will still give me a performance upgrade
Cons: not the 6.2L--the biggest con of course.
Last gen uconnect
What do others think? Especially re: the TH being the final year of the WK2 and 2019 coming out with essentially a brand new truck?
