The Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee ‘Trackhawk, as it’s rumored to be named, isn’t a very well kept secret over at Fiat Chrysler. Not only has Jeep brand boss Mike Manley confirmed such a product is in the pipeline, the supercharged Jeep has also been caught on video undergoing acceleration tests and spied out on the roads numerous times.
Today we bring you more spy shots of the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee, but this time the prototype caught testing was wearing very minimal camouflage over its bodywork. The only area Jeep felt the need to cover up was the front end, which will no doubt receive some changes over the standard Grand Cherokee SRT in order to meet the cooling needs of the supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8.
Apart from the revised front fascia, this prototype appears nearly identical to a standard Grand Cherokee SRT. We don’t think this will be the case with the production model and are expecting some model exclusive wheels, a revised rear diffuser and side skirts and perhaps different exhaust outlets. Sporty interior touches will also likely be in store, similar to the Charger and Challenger Hellcat twins.
