Supercharged next-generation SUV provided, including existing Trackhawk components to the brand-new seven-seater.

Jeep exposed its new-generation 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee today, which will certainly release initially in seven-seat, three-row ‘L’ kind, with a two-row, five-seat variation to comply with in around 2 years.

Nevertheless, there’s simply one inquiry on the minds of several Jeep followers: when will the covers be taken off the high-performance SRT as well as Trackhawk variations, as well as what will they appear like?

Right here’s our analysis of exactly how the supercharged, fire-breathing latter can look, utilizing the freshly-unveiled Grand Cherokee L as a base, in sportier Overland trim.

Wide wheel-arch flares, black alloy wheels covered in Pirelli rubber, as well as Brembo high-performance brakes– all obtained from the current-generation Trackhawk (listed below)– fill as well as border the arcs, with their high profile matched by a high hood scoop lent from the 523kW Ram 1500 TRX pick-up, powered by the very same 6.2-litre supercharged V8 as the Jeep.

Our next-generation Trackhawk rests especially reduced to the ground than the conventional Grand Cherokee L, with the bundle settled by bigger air consumptions, a triad of vents beneath the seven-slot grille (according to the existing SRT as well as Trackhawk), black trim, pentagonal reduced LED daytime-running lights as well as the needed SRT, Hemi 6.2 as well as Supercharged badging.

Powering the efficiency SUV would certainly be a variation of the fan-favourite 6.2-litre supercharged V8 petroleum engine used by the existing Trackhawk as well as a wide variety of various other FCA (as well as currently Stellantis) versions, consisting of the Dodge Opposition, Battery Charger as well as Durango SRT Hellcat triad, as well as the abovementioned Ram 1500 TRX ute.

The mill creates 522kW of power as well as 868Nm of torque in existing Australian-delivered Trackhawks, though a power increase would certainly be most likely on the cards for any kind of possible new-generation version, perhaps matching the 535kW as well as 889Nm drawn out from the Dodge Opposition Hellcat, or the 594kW as well as 959Nm from the full-fat (however sub-Demon) Opposition Redeye.

Nevertheless, any kind of power increase would likely be negated by the L version’s added heft, many thanks to its longer body developed to house a 3rd row of seats.

That’s presuming the Grand Cherokee L Trackhawk would certainly ever before see the light of day, as a seven-seat supercharged Jeep would certainly cannibalise sales of Fiat Chrysler’s various other seven-seat supercharged SUV, the abovementioned Dodge Durango Hellcat.

A Trackhawk variation of the next-generation, five-seat Grand Cherokee as a result of go into manufacturing in mid-to-late 2021 (though it isn’t anticipated to show up in Australia till later on in 2022) is more probable, provided it would certainly be devoid of competitors within the FCA/Stellantis stable.

While Jeep has yet to validate the arrival of a Trackhawk version with either 5- or seven-seat variations of the brand-new SUV, it’s most likely (though not validated) the supercharged version would certainly show up after the introduction of both the routine five-seat version, as well as its 6.4-litre, naturally-aspirated SRT by-product.
