The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee has a V8 engine that rumbles like it wants to come out of the hood and say hello. This SUV is a muscle car that has all it takes to compete with the best SUV out there. However, the luxury features of this SUV are few. It was not designed to be luxurious like a Range Rover or a Lamborghini Urus.
Under the hood
Under the hood, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 engine. Pumping out a whopping 707 horsepower and a 645 pound-feet of torque. The all-wheel-drive SUV comes standard with 8-speed automatic transmission and will do an impressive 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds. It’s not the most powerful SUV in the market but will Trackhawk will happily toddle along like any other five-passenger SUV. However, the loud rumble of that big V8 engine is enough to make anyone fall in love with the car.
It has huge and powerful Brembo brakes and will compete with other high-performance SUVs. Competitors such as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the BMW X5 are in the same class as the TrackHawk. However, they are far more expensive and luxurious. The EPA ratings of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk stands at 11 miles per gallon city, 17 mpg highway and 13 mpg combined. This means only one thing, the fuel consumption is very high!
Interior and tech
The interior of the TrackHawk is beautiful but definitely not luxurious. Its material quality is fine but nothing compared to what you will get in its rival, the BMW X5. It comes loaded with tech and has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. It also has an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system. The SUV also has 4 USB ports for passengers. Two at the front and two at the back.
In terms of safety, it has a Lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring and steering assist. It also has adaptive cruise control. The price of the beast starts at $86,650 which is cheaper than its rival the BMW X5 which starts at $100,000.
