Autoblog: Jeep Hellcat - Shutup & Take my money

Looky looky at this article on Autoblog about wanted vehicles

Six 'shut up and take my money' cars - Autoblog

Soon after my review of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat lifted off, there were dozens of comments that the Fiat Chrysler Automotive brain trust needed to put the 707-horsepower, supercharged monster-V8 into the fan-favorite Jeep Grand Cherokee. I was immediately won over by the idea.

Considering Jeep's history of STR-ing the GC, and the fact that we already have a Hellcat Charger, I'd say this is one Take My Money car that has legs.

Start saving though; it's a good bet that that Grand Cherokee iteration would be the dearest 'Cat yet. With both the Charger and the Challenger SRT cars starting in the low sixties, it's not implausible that the Hellcat Jeep could run $70k-$75k to start. That price would make it competitive with the Porsche Cayenne S, but with an advantage of nearly 300 ponies. Deal.

Re: Autoblog: Jeep Hellcat - Shutup & Take my money

If they build this Hellcat SRT,I wonder if it will be lower than the current SRT,I kind a like the ride height of the current SRT great here for the snow in Canada.

This is just a rendering. Most likely it will still be WK3 model before the hellcat is done...

Re: Autoblog: Jeep Hellcat - Shutup & Take my money

I heard that they were doing away with the "SRT" name an going with "Trailhawk" an with the all wheel drive system that the $75,000 price is quite low an looking more too $80,000 plus some pennies more. I also heard that there was a new bumper face out there that will separate the SRT brand to the Trailhawk brand.

That's what I heard my 2cents...

Re: Autoblog: Jeep Hellcat - Shutup & Take my money

Thanks for sharing!
*Usually* the people in charge in Detroit have their ear to the ground, which means that every bit of blog, article and forum pushing for the Hellcat-GC takes us closer to actually having one on the Jeep lineup. Fingers crossed...!

Re: Autoblog: Jeep Hellcat - Shutup & Take my money

Renderings are awful, then again, how often are they accurate? It looks like some Pep Boys edition Jeep.

If it comes in a current generation I will not buy it. If it comes in the next generation I will, so long as the Cherokee design team doesn't have any input. If they feminize the next gen Jeep GC I will jump ship and buy a Porsche Cayenne TT.
