- 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk gets first update in two years
- New wheels, interior, and tech
- $5360 price increase for $13,000 more value
- Priced from $139,500 before on-road costs
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has returned to the Australian market, offering buyers big V8 performance in a large SUV body.
The range-topping performance Grand Cherokee has seen some minor revisions compared to the 2018 variant, but the Trackhawk's centrepiece is still its 6.2-litre supercharged petrol V8 engine, producing 522kW of power and 868Nm of torque.
Engine power is transferred to all four wheels via an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission, sending the 2399kg Jeep to 100km/h from a standstill in a claimed 3.7 seconds – achieved with launch control, as standard.
Stopping power is provided via Brembo brakes.
At $139,500 before on-road costs, the Trackhawk is $5360 more than the 2018 model. However, Jeep says the updated SUV delivers more than $13,000 worth of value over the previous version.
Buyers get new 20-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels on 254mm wide Pirelli P-Zero tyres, an updated infotainment system, and Signature Laguna leather as standard.
The interior has now been brought into line with the rest of the Grand Cherokee line-up, receiving the fourth-generation Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible Uconnect infotainment system running on an 8.4-inch flush-mounted screen.
Ahead of the driver is a 7.0-inch information display, while the vehicle's Selec-Track system allows a choice of five driving modes: Auto, Sport, Track, Snow, and Tow – each with their own settings for torque split front-to-rear, transmission changes, steering speed, and suspension firmness.
