Jeep has introduced the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk - powered by the 707-horsepower engine of the Dodge Hellcat, making it the fastest and most powerful sport utility vehicle (SUV) in the market. That's right! This 6.2-litre V8 Hellcat engine, seen previously in the Challenger and the Charger, now sends 707bhp of power to the all-wheel-drive in the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, while producing a colossal turning momentum of 875Nm.

Putting out 707 horsepower and 645 lb. -ft. of torque, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can catapult itself from a standstill to 100 km/h 60 in 3.5-seconds, and it runs a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The SUV's all-wheel drive system pairs up with a variety of computer-controlled performance modes to give it the best combination of power, traction, and speed for pretty much any occasion.

Apart from its fantastic pickup, the upcoming vehicle from Jeep can cover a quarter mile in 11.5 seconds per the company's assertions.

The Detroit-built Trackhawk will debut at the 2017 NY auto show this week and is expected to arrive in dealerships this fall.

To cope with the significant performance increase there's an upgraded powertrain including a modified TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission "engineered to handle additional torque output".

The 2017 Grand Cherokee SRT is priced at $66,895 and the new model will likely bear a price slightly higher than the previous one.

Dropping the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 in the Grand Cherokee's engine bay was easier said than done. Taking care of safety is a set of 15.75-inch (400 millimeter) Brembo brakes in front and 13.78-inch (350 mm) rotors in the rear, with the company looking towards a 60 miles per hour (97 kph) stop in 114 feet. The Trackhawk is an inch lower than other Grand Cherokee models and has five different driving modes, including Track mode. There's also the obligatory launch-control system, backed up by the largest brakes ever fitted to a Jeep, while driver support systems include lane-departure warning, active cruise control and blind-spot monitoring. Suspension is A-arm front and multi-link rear with Bilstein adaptive dampers at both ends. Naturally, the Trackhawk is looking the part - and uses the parts for mechanical purposes as well. There are also quad exhaust pipes.

But the most fascinating thing could be the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen with Trackhawk-exclusive Performance Pages.

Standard equipment extends to a new Premium Metal Package and Signature Leather Interior Package including Nappa leather and suede seat trim in black or black/red with an embroidered Trackhawk logo.
