Just launched on sale in the US, over there the Trackhawk starts from $85,900, or AED315,000

Over in the US Jeep has just announced the pricing for its fairly mental Hellcat-engined Grand Cherokee track hawk, which is already on sale and starts Stateside from AED315,000.

Now, purely from a performance perspective, that’s less than a 420-horsepower V6-engined Porsche Cayenne, but the Jeep gives you a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 producing 707 horsepower and 875Nm of torque.

That easily makes the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk the most powerful production SUV ever, capable of 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds, a quarter mile in 11.6 seconds, and a top speed of 290km/h.

The power goes to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, with Brembo braking power on all corners which Jeep says are the largest they’ve ever used, bringing the car to a dead stop from 100km/h in 35 metres.

Sitting on 20-inch wheels the Trackhawk utilizes a five-mode driver-select chassis which gives you several options, on adaptive Bilstein suspension.

Jeep even claims the monster-SUV will pull 0.88g on the skid pad, which means it won’t shy away from the corners either. The rear end in fact features an electronic limited-slip differential, and a launch control mode is standard so you can get consistent times, if you tend to drop by the drag strip regularly.

The Trackhawk sits an inch lower than the current daddy of the Grand Cherokee range, the SRT model, and feature an exclusive bonnet with dual heat extractors, and they’ve even deleted the foglight to optimise airflow and allow more cooling for the engine that was initially developed for the Challenger Hellcat muscle car.

Inside you get a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and some carbon fibre and dark chrome finishes, plus a black or black/red leather package as well as a 19-speaker audio system. In any case you’ll be able to get a closer look inside and out, when the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk shows up on Jeep’s stand at November’s .
