Thumbs up 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT? TrackHawk? TrackHawk Hellcat?

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee (high perfomance model)


----SRT Jeep is DEAD! Will no longer be an SRT. No way they will not use TrackHawk IMHO or just Hellcat. We could see a Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with the new 6.4 hemi and a Grand Cherokee hellcat with the 6.2. I really see just one model...6.4 and 6.2 as an option($80k price)

Exterior-refreshed headlamps and tails. More aggressive front end with some hellcat charger/challenger cues. New wheels, hood, flares, mirrors, and rear bumper. New LED lighting. Towing capacity up.

Interior-new hellcat/trackhawk display like chally/charger. new shifter

drivetrain-

6.4 and 6.2 as an option. New torqueflight tranny, new 4wd system(?)

sub 4 second 0-60 and 12 second 1/4s. New Top speed 185 mph in 6.2 model

I'm really sad to see the SRT brand going away. Making Dodge the performance brand is not the right move in my opinion. Chrysler and Jeep get left in the dark.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT? TrackHawk? TrackHawk Hellcat?

Any idea when the debut will be?

Is the refresh only for the Hellcat or both models?

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT? TrackHawk? TrackHawk Hellcat?

Is this a theory or an explanation?

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT? TrackHawk? TrackHawk Hellcat?

Hope it's not true. Good chance I'm going to jump ship when I'm due for a new vehicle. Possibly Cayenne TT. Then again I might just get a regular Grand Cherokee and then a sports car...so long as they don't gay up the exterior Cherokee style. The FIAT executives are ****ing everything up. For those not aware FIAT is the reason we lost our motorsports teams.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT? TrackHawk? TrackHawk Hellcat?

I'll believe any of this when I see it. IMO they aren't going to waste this type of time and money when it's not too far from a redesign. I could see the SRT name dropping though and respective changes made to the vehicle where that may be associated. I don't expect a hellcat, mostly because of what that one article said.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT? TrackHawk? TrackHawk Hellcat?

I wonder if the hellcat would be AWD or RWD only. Surprised we didn't see an AWD charger hellcat.

700HP AWD should be deep into the 11s even with the added weight.
