The world’s quickest and most-powerful SUV, the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, will wear a lofty price tag to match its elevated stats when it goes on sale later this year; Fiat Chrysler Automobiles today announced that the high-performance full-size utility vehicle will arrive with a starting MSRP of $85,900, excluding a $1,095 destination fee. Those hoping for an attainable 707-horsepower passenger vehicle with three rows of seating might be better off giving up on that dream.
Of course, for the money, you’re getting a full-size SUV that can haul itself up to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and tow up to 7,200 pounds. Making such performance possible is the same supercharged, 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 that powers the eponymous Dodge SRT Challenger and Charger models. The Trackhawk’s braking performance is every bit as impressive; the SUV can halt from 60 mph in 114 feet, thanks to a Brembo braking system with a unique yellow finish.
That finish doesn’t help with braking performance at all, but it does look awfully cool.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is slated to start arriving at dealerships from the fourth quarter of this year. For more information on the new model, be sure to visit our past article from the high-performance SUV’s public unveiling.
