JEEP has unleashed a monster in the shape of the new 707bhp Grand Cherokee Trackhawk due to arrive this autumn.
Capable of scorching from 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds, Jeep says it is the fastest and most powerful SUV ever.
Powered by a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine, it can complete the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds and has a top speed of 180mph.
The Trackhawk comes with an upgraded TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and driveline components engineered to handle the whopping torque output of 645lbs per foot.
There’s also the Jeep Quadra-Trac on-demand four-wheel-drive system, which includes an electronic limited-slip rear differential and a single-speed active transfer case – and more than 70 safety and security features.
New standard 20 x 10-inch Titanium wheels expose distinctive yellow Brembo brake callipers, the largest-ever front brakes on a Jeep vehicle, and the system can stop the Trackhawk from 60mph to standstill in just 114ft.
Built in Detroit at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant, the Jeep has an aggressive design that includes a quad-tip exhaust and redesigned fascia that optimises airflow and cooling.
There’s also a driver-focused seven-inch instrument cluster with centred tachometer plus 200mph speedometer and 8.4-inch touchscreen with Trackhawk Performance Pages.
And the SUV’s technology features a Uconnect 8.4-standard touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Jeep’s global brand chief Mike Manley said: “Long recognised as the full-size SUV capability leader, Jeep Grand Cherokee is now the most powerful and quickest SUV as well, with the introduction of our new 707-horsepower Trackhawk.
“The new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk delivers astounding performance numbers, backed by renowned SRT engineering that combines world class on-road driving dynamics with luxury, refinement and an array of innovative advanced technology.”
