Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

From the horse's mouth (Mike Manley, Jeep CEO), looks like it's a reality in 2017.

Choice is always a good thing.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

While I'm sure it will be a beast I'm not sure how many people will drop $90k for a juiced up Jeep Grand Cherokee, then again Hellcats have sold very well so maybe there will be a market for them

I'd expect significant dealer markups and low allocation per dealer.
As for who would buy it?
Folks who have an SRT, but have gotten a few pay raises and now want something with a bit more zip.

Or idiots like me.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

I figured it would compete with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the Range Rover Sport SVR.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

I'm definitely looking forward to picking one of these up when they come out..just wondering if buying the first gen is going to be a good idea or not?

I'm guessing there will be some issues with it but it would be great to have one of the first batch...for 80-85K you're going to be able to compete and beat vehicles that cost WAYY more...even though its a jeep you'll still have one of the fastest vehicles around....

Everyone always says this, but first gen issues come up like 5% of the time. What is wrong with the first gen Charger/Challenger Hellcats? Other than Dodge can't build them quick enough to fill orders.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

I have a feeling it could be faster than either the Challenger or Charger despite the penalty weight simply due to the fact all wheels are driven.

Now, based on current exchange rates, starting price in USD is $70K, which means $100K CAD. It's still a bargain compared to a Porsche Cayenne Turbo, albeit with lower quality.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

For a starting price of $80k, I'd certainly think hard about it. I'm not ready to give up on quick vehicles, but I just don't fit well in sports/muscle cars. I've been thinking the Grand Cherokee SRT-8 fixes just about every problem I have with my GTO, so why not the Hellcat? 4 doors for the family, trunk space, easier ingress/egress. Anybody want to buy a low mile 2006 GTO?

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

I wonder how they're going to tweak the awd system to handle all the torque. I would think they're going to have to compromise something, hopefully not knocking down torque or pulling timing in certain situations.
