Prediction: Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to Make 575 Horsepower

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

Fast Jeeps are fun. You probably already know that. The SRT Grand Cherokee is one of the most fun vehicles you can buy today, primarily because how silly it is. And by silly I mean awesome. And by awesome, I mean on a racetrack.

While it might not carry the Trail Rated badge, the Grand Cherokee SRT can go off-road nearly as well as it can tackle a racetrack. It has impressive performance, and for the longest time was the fastest-accelerating SRT product you could buy. There’s always room for improvement in speed land, though.

We know that a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is coming. We know that that Jeep will have a 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8 under the hood; the same engine you’ll find in the SRT Hellcats from Dodge. We’ve speculated how much power it’ll make, and we’re making that claim again here.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see the Trackhawk roll off the assembly line with 575 horsepower.

We’re using the Ram Rebel TRX is the basis for this claim. In order for the TRX to function off-road reliably, extra air filters and technology are employed to keep the dust out. Since the Grand Cherokee is still a Jeep — even a non-Trail Rated one — it’ll have to have some off-road prowess. We wouldn’t be surprised if the setup in the TRX is the exact same that ends up in the Trackhawk.

While it’s not 707 horsepower, 575 will be more than enough to make that Jeep one fast crossover. It should also still sound the business, too. It’ll be a Demon in its own right.

What do you think? How much power with the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Trackhawk make?
