2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk starts at $86,995

That's what you pay for 707 hp and vanity rights

Prices are in for the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, FCA's monster SUV infused with supercharged Hellcat power.

Those of you who connected late to the Internet should know that the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the world's quickest SUV as it needs just 3.5 seconds to blast through the 0-60 mph interval.

For the sake of comparison, BMW's X5 M does that in 4.0 seconds while the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S needs 3.8 seconds.

The placement of a 707 hp 6.2-liter V8 under the hood was bound to raise the Trackhawk's price tag, but Jeep also used mechanical gimmicks to keep the power in check, which eventually added up to the tally.

Some of them are the upgraded TorqueLite gearbox, Brembo brakes, as well as driveline parts roughened up to handle the extra strain.

 

You also get Launch Control, Jeep's Quadra-Trac all-wheel drive setup, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, a single-speed transfer case and the possibility to switch driving modes via the Selec-Trak system.

Optional gear comes in the shape of a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, a leather interior package, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and a dual-screen rear entertainment setup.

Nine exterior colors are on the table for the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk: Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Diamond Black, Ivory Tri-coat, Bright White, Velvet Red, Rhino, Redline 2 (exclusive) and True Blue.

The MSRP is $85,900, but it doesn't include the $1,095 destination fee, so all in all, you'll have to pay $86,995 for the supercharged brute. Order books open on August 10.

And since we mentioned Hellcat, you might want to have a look at Hennessey's bonkers 1,000 hp Challenger. Or maybe it's the widebody Dodge Challenger Hellcat that tickles your fancy.
