    When the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was introduced for the 2015 model year, there were high ranking executives at FCA who were sure that the company would lose money on the project. These European bigwigs didn’t believe that there was enough demand for a 2-ton coupe (or sedan) with more than...

    With the Jeep Cherokee and Chrysler Pacifica sharing so much, and the Wrangler already having a mild-hybrid powerplant, one might expect that Jeep’s first plug-in hybrid (“PHEV”) would be either the Cherokee or Pacifica. That, though, would ignore the fact that PHEVs are hot in Europe, where...

    FCA is recalling Jeep Grand Cherokees with the most powerful engine options to replace the driver’s-side floor mats, because they can trap the gas pedal and result in a runaway. The recall covers over 5,000 Grand Cherokee SRTs and Grand Cherokee Trackhawks, which tame their 485-707 horsepower...

    A great many owners of Hellcat-powered vehicles from Dodge and Jeep have learned that swapping to a smaller pulley adds gobs of power (with the necessary supporting modifications). The problem with the pulley swap options on the market over the past few years is that they lack the internal...

    The details from the latest FCA Five Year plan have been trickling out of Italy all day, but it looks like the biggest news is that there are a ton of new Jeep models coming by 2022, as well as the long-rumored arrival of the Hellcat Hemi-powered Ram 1500. Also, contrary to the many reports, the...

    I recently had a chance to spend a week with the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and this 707-horsepower, all-wheel-drive sport utility vehicle was every bit as much fun of a daily driver as you would expect and I enjoyed every second of it – except for the few minutes I spent getting a...

    This past weekend, the crew from Livernois Motorsports headed to the drag strip with a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk modified with their S900 package and a few other upgrades. That 877-horsepower SUV became the first of its kind to break into the 9-second range. In other words, this is the...

    Two rather different cars, the Chrysler Pacifica minivan and Jeep 707-horsepower Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, have been recalled. The Pacifica recall covers around 160,000 2017 models, where the engine software may lose the crankshaft position sensor signal and stall the engine. The fix is a...

    Although FCA didn’t introduce any new high performance models at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, no automaker packed as much muscle into Detroit’s Cobo Hall as Ma Mopar. Dodge had the only 800+ horsepower car on the show floor and while there were some other cars in the...

    In the land of V8s (and no fuel economy rules), two hundred Australians have already put money down on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The first 62, a special edition, sold out before prices were announced. CarAdvice wrote that the Hellcat-powered Jeep will sell alongside the “ordinary”...

    Earlier this week, a rumor began circulating around the internet that a bunch of Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawks had been stolen from their assembly plant in Detroit. The source was typical of an Internet rumor, such as “a guy I know at the plant told me”, but when more and more Detroit locals...

    The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is one of the most anticipated vehicles in the modern era of American high performance. After spending a day driving a few of them around Maine and New Hampshire, I can say that this Hellcat Hemi-powered SUV is everything that we had all hoped it would...

    How does the Trackhawk handle in snow? How did they fit in a transfer case capable of handling 707 hp? and how challenging was it, really, to add 222 horsepower to the most powerful Jeep ever made? Why aren’t there any SRT or Hellcat badges on the show cars? We were able to ask these...

    Today is Hellcat day at the New York Auto Show, with numerous 707-840 horsepower muscle cars and trucks on display. The Dodge Demon sits in a roped off area of its own, and was gathering more attention than the entire Maserati area combined — or for that matter, the Alfa Romeo area. There...

    After what seems like years of speculation, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk powered by the Hellcat Hemi is finally here and as we had hoped – it packs the same 707 horsepower as the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. We have known since the 2016 North American International Auto Show in...
