Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat coming in 2017

By ,

It’s official: The 707-horsepower Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat models will share their supercharged 6.2L V8 engine with the Jeep Grand Cherokee "before the end of 2017," company CEO Mike Manley told journalists at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

As Automotive News points out, for months Fiat Chrysler executives accidentally have been saying "Track-hawk" instead of "Trailhawk" to describe some of their more capable Jeeps. In fact, the "Trackhawk" name was trademarked in July 2014.

While output for the Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee has yet to be specified, expect it to easily trump the naturally aspirated 6.4L HEMI V8’s 475 horsepower.
