Perhaps that, and a spate of spy shots of the Trackhawk, is what led a reputable auto writer/photographer to believe this was actually the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk when it is something perhaps more significant: the next Jeep Compass.

    No SRT in SRT Trailhawk... just Trailhawk... Dodge = SRT (sans 300 SRT for export).

    Yup. No Trackhawk mule would be anywhere near pavement with those skinny tires on it either. at LEAST SRT sized wheels, and those aint close lol.

    Nothing to see here, move along. MP folks.

    Eh, that could be a regular SRT as well FWIW. That 3 slot opening appears to be normal for the W series SRT/Hellcats

    HAHAH, the more I look at that red one, the more convinced I am that that's the Durango SRT fascia.

    You can see the intercooler in the right opening there. Nice. But look at the lower part of the fascia better. Especially in the center. Compare the grey one to the red one very closely....
