Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Love it, that's no mall crawling grocery hauler!

Would hate to get a scratch on it however.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

While I think it does look badass, I really don't see what the market is for that. The '13 Trailhawk is perfect for someone like me: someone with a growing family that wants a luxury-type SUV that is still quite capable on mountain trails. While I have no doubt that thing is more than capable on the trails, it's going to ride like a tank on the road. And, I couldn't imagine trying to heft a car seat into it every day.

Honestly, if I were in the market for that type of vehicle, I'd buy a 4 door JK Rubicon.

I'm glad I got mine in '13.

It's just a concept for the Moab show. Production models could end up with 18" wheels just like the 2013 Trailhawk has.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

I actually love these Wrangler wheels on this.

What size tire do you think will actually make it through to production models? This does look so amazing, but realistically we could stand to lose a few inches on the tire.

The '13's has 32's, so I think that 33's would easily be reasonable. I'm not sure we could expect to see these 35's in production, but you never know.

I'll repost this because people missed it or ignored it.

The 2014 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Concept – the third Grand Cherokee created for Easter Jeep since 2011 - features 35-inch Mickey Thompson off-road tires on Wrangler Rubicon 17-inch aluminum wheels, enlarged wheel openings with custom fender flares, custom front and rear skid plates, dual rear tow hooks and modified Mopar rock rails.

Custom design cues include a Grand Cherokee SRT hood, SRT front and rear fascias that have been modified for extra ground clearance, a black front grille, a matte black roof and one-off custom roof rails. The body is finished in a vibrant, non-metallic blood-orange hue that also manages to draw attention to the larger wheel openings and off-road tires.

Mopar slush mats and rear cargo liner enhance Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Concept's interior.

Those wheels are borrowed from the Rubicon. I seriously doubt we will see 35" MT's stock, which they needed to enlarge the wheel wells and change the fenders to fit. A lot of custom bits and pieces on this concept.

Will we see a Trailhawk 2? I believe so. But I expect it to be watered down compared to this concept. I'm still very interested.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

This thing has me reaching for my wallet! I think Jeep would be surprised if they put it on the market. But I want the V8 and most of the luxory too.

Meh, close enough. I'm putting 315/70 17's on my Rubicon and will be calling them 35's . Sure, depending on the manufacturer it will vary somewhere between 34" and 35". But, I'll be rounding up.
