2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Prepares to Blow Mitchell Drivers Away

We're taking orders for the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk now, for deliveries starting before the end of 2017. This super-powered SUV is poised to knock the socks off anyone who drives it, boasting 707-horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque.

It is supposedly the fastest SUV ever, and with a top speed of 180 mph and a scorching launch from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, we're inclined to believe it. SUVs, particularly upscale ones like the Jeep Grand Cherokee, are not usually the first target for automakers to give the hot-rod treatment.

It takes dedicated engineering to make an SUV that can withstand the force of such a powerful engine, but the payoff is well worth it. Unlike conventional sports cars, which are all play and no work (or as we call it, the reverse-Jack Torrance), the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk does double-duty as a practical family hauler.

It hasn't lost the U in SUV—it has a comfortable interior with seating for five, a 7,200-pound tow rating, and all-weather capability for snow, rain, and backroad conditions.
