Car and Driver is reporting that the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be the next recipient of a certain 707 horsepower power plant. There have been many recent rumours that the Hellcat engine would be finding a new home somewhere but they seem to be quashed fairly quickly. Let’s hope this marriage happens!.
You asked for, nay, demanded a Hellcat powered Grand Cherokee. No official word from Chrysler but the internet is abuzz with the rumour that such a beast may yet come to fruition. Find more info at StrettLegalTV.
So you like the Grand Cherokee but, even in SRT8 trim, it’s still not fast enough for you? How about a 10.88 quarter mile at 123 mph? This one is also a daily driver! Built by High Horse Performance, it generates 600 horsepower at the rear wheels. See more info at Street Legal TV. Video after the jump!
After initially refusing to recall 2.7 million Jeeps following a NTHSA warning about fire danger, Chrysler has reversed course. They are now asking that owners of 1993 to 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees and 2002 to 2007 Jeep Libertys bring the vehicles in for inspection.
“As a result of the agreement, Chrysler Group will conduct a voluntary campaign with respect to the vehicles in question that, in addition to a visual inspection of the vehicle will, if necessary, provide an upgrade to the rear structure of the vehicle to better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts.
Chrysler Group’s analysis of the data confirms that these vehicles are not defective and are among the safest in the peer group. Nonetheless, Chrysler Group recognizes that this matter has raised concerns for its customers and wants to take further steps, in coordination with NHTSA, to provide additional measures to supplement the safety of its vehicles.
Chrysler Group regards safety as a paramount concern and does not compromise on the safety of our customers and their families.”
