Thumbs up 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk w/6.2l SC???

??????


Lots of rumors swirling from online mags such as Car and Driver. Even in print this month with Car and Driver!

Could we see a black key with the trackhawk for AWD mode and lower hp and then the red key for all out RWD performance???? If so.,...you heard it here first!

I think Jeep should just re-program the 'Panic' button on the current key fob for the all out performance mode. It would save money having one key fob for both modes & it's probably how most first-time owners will react with they press the gas pedal in high performance mode - PANIC!!!!!

I didn't say "never" or "ever". I said "near future". If you think you'll be buying or ordering a Jeep hellcat within a year, probably shouldn't hold your breath.

I'd be hard pressed to think your sources provided you better "secrets" than mine. I've been involved with the "Hellcat Mess" for months and not afraid to take things up the chain........

I think it was by third or fourth grade that as kids we realised that instead of singing,

"I've got a secret I won't tell"

it seemed more grown up to just quietly keep a secret to yourself.
