It is reported that Jeep will no longer sell the Grand Cherokee SUV in the powerful Trackhawk version – at least in the new generation of the model. Earlier it was reported that the next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will receive a monstrous V8.
Showcased back in 2018, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV in the powerful Trackhawk version became the fastest production car on sale. To the first “hundred”, the car can accelerate up to 3.5 seconds. According to the latest data, the new generation of the American SUV will not be featured in the high-performance Trackhawk.
Jeep is now preparing to start production of the new Grand Cherokee, and insiders from Stellantis, which owns the Jeep brand, say that the new Trackhawk may not appear.
The American brand was planning to release a new version of this powerful turbo V8 model, but Stellantis’ plan for universal electrification and ever-increasing emissions standards forced Jeep to reconsider its plans.
Still, there is still a chance for the appearance of a completely new version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, but such a car will certainly not receive a powerful supercharged V8. The novelty will use a hybrid in-line “six” turbocharged with a displacement of 3.0 liters and a capacity of 525 “horses”. The main advantage of such a power plant will be instant torque. It is worth noting that the current version of the mid-size Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can produce 707 hp.
