Hellcat-powered SUV to debut in the Big Apple
The upcoming Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 'Trackhawk' will make its debut at the New York motor show in April – according to a new report out of the US.

Under the bonnet will be the same 6.2-litre supercharged Hemi V8 as the Charger and Challenger Hellcats, which develops a whopping 527kW of power and 880Nm of torque.
That's a significant bump over the current Grand Cherokee SRT, which pumps out 344kW and 624Nm from its 6.4-litre Hemi V8 – a difference of 183kW and 256Nm.
Considering the 'standard' SRT sprints from 0-100km/h in a claimed 4.8 seconds, the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee should be able to complete the benchmark dash in the mid-to-low 3.0-second range – potentially quicker – thanks to the extra power and its all-wheel drive system (unlike its Hellcat brethren).
