Is the Trackhawk coming to New York?

by David Zatz on

The Jeep Compass has been delayed, according to the rumor mill, and isn’t set for production until nearly the end of 2016. Some may cheer, assuming that the company is trying to increase the off-road chops of the series, after the Renegade disappointed hard-core Jeepers; but then the question comes, what will Jeep show off in New York City two weeks from now?

The answer is now, we’ve been told, almost certainly the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, a long-awaited revision to the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. We now expect a new 392 version of the popular sport SUV, and possibly a Hellcat version in either concept or production form.

While the 707 horsepower Hellcat has long been rumored for the Grand Cherokee, downtuned somewhat to avoid destroying the Jeep (or making it impossible to handle), the 470 horsepower version is quite potent on its own. Since other 392 V8s push out 485 horses, a 15-hp upgrade is not beyond the imagination.
