When it comes to the quintessential SUV, it’s likely that the 2018 Jeep® Grand Cherokee is a perfect example. Better than that, this iconic SUV also goes above and beyond to offer drivers more than they expected. That’s why the Jeep brand has not only survived but thrived for generations. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is no exception.
One particular model from the Jeep Grand Cherokee that’s gotten some note as of late is the Trackhawk. Make no mistake, this isn’t your average Jeep SUV. It’s essentially a race car disguised as an SUV, thanks to the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, which puts out 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque.
As far as looks go, it boasts a similar facade to the other 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee models, only this one’s a little bit buffer. In addition to a supercharged engine, a new torque reserve system pre-positions the supercharger bypass valve so that it generates a boost and instantly delivers a reserve of torque. In layman’s terms, it’s quick off the line despite its size. The transmission is also built with a high-torque capacity to emulate drag-racing style driving.
The vehicle has five driving modes: Auto, Sport, Track, Tow, and Snow. A sixth is there as Custom mode that drivers can personalize. Overall, it’s a track-focused SUV that can be personalized any which way to best support your motoring habits.
While the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk isn’t for everyone, it goes to show what the automaker is capable of and the attention to detail put into every one of its models.
