Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

Okay,....so I'm getting confused on some of the stuff here.
It's the 6.2 supercharged engine that "Project K" is getting and the ZF transmission, correct? The same set up as the Hellcat Challengers and Chargers, I do believe.
If that is the case,...isn't that way more HP and TQ than the 490 number that I see/read being printed? It's kind of confusing.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

490hp is what the base SRT will put out.

The 6.4 motor will be the base and continue to get the ZF 8hp70 transmission.

6.2 s/c'ed motor will be an option and end up with the ZF 8hp90, or some variant of it.

I get it now. They are adding the Trackhawk to the line-up.
Very nice. 707 HP and 650 TQ in an AWD Jeep SRT will be so fun to drive.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

The tranny are no problem


"The transmission can be used in a mild or full hybrid setup, and allows input torque up to 900 Nm, or 664 lb-ft (8HP90)"

I think the transfer cases and the axle are the big one

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

i believe the current transfer case can handle the tq and use chromoly cv axle shafts and get stronger driveshafts.

seen atleast two cases of the driveshaft on the chally hellcat twisted off.

Was that twisted using slicks or street rubber?

Drag Radials, has happened to a few guys, not a lot though. I'd say less than 5. There is a company that already makes an upgraded, stronger one. A couple guys put them in off that bat knowing they'd be pushing the car, no issues.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

If the chally with drags can do it the track hawk should be able to do it.

If I was FCA i'd learn from the mistakes and make them right on the GC.

I've only heard of the hellcat with the 6 speeds doing this the automatic little smarter.
