I showed this to my wife. She says "but the speed limit is 75, why do you need something that goes 200???". She will never understand.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

Soo... The trans will handle the torque, but will the transfer case and rear end hold up? New suspension to keep it from just spinning all four?

Seems like a hell of a lot of engineering and parts and then getting them into the supply chain and Qc to make sure it isn't in the dealer for regular replacements

This isn't a major refresh year.. But seems like this is going to need a more than just a trans and engine

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

This will be great that Jeep can retake the performance numbers back from the Euro wagons. I hope the test mules get driven hard and hope the TF case/Tranny can take it. I couldn't imagine having that much power with anything short of the equivalent of 3/4 ton running gear. The Hellcat Chally is not exactly bullet proof right out of the box as a few have had durability issues. The pricing seems on par and well under the equal euro models, but it would be nice to see Jeep update the seats with a little more modern styling and better cabin trim. Its going to be a huge homerun, but I hope it will be at least close to as plush as the Euros.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

I'm #1 on the 'unofficial' list at my dealer. We'll see how it plays out though as it will probably be hard to justify upgrading to the factory HC over my self-made HC...whenever I finally get it back.
