2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 with a 470-horsepower 6.4-liter natural aspirated “eight” is noticeably inferior to ideological German rivals, the BMW X5 M/X6 M, Porsche Cayenne Turbo and Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG, which get over five hundred “horses”, but soon will avenge them all in one fell swoop. Insiders whispered the highest degree intriguing confedential information: in the near future the company “will charge” SRT Hellcat modification, passing under the code name Trackhawk!

It will receive the same V8 6.2 L compressor motor  that put on Challenger coupe and Charger sedan in their most powerful iterations. It is argued that the returned engine power will keep on rising and mark 707 HP and 881 Nm.

Jeep renames Grand Cherokee SRT in Trackhawk

Jeep introduced the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat earlier this month, but according to a new report stating the name of the model, which ultimately could be “Trackhawk”.

And now, a little prehistory; Trailhawk is a factory designation, rather a prefix for models like the Cherokee and Renegade. All versions Trailhawk are off-road models , at the same time Trackhawk option indicates the power. Not necessarily this means that the name Trackhawk will replace the SRT, but on recent developments in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles it could be anything. A simple example is a new five-year plan of the group, and one of the first tasks is called the Union to a single brand Dodge and Jeep.
