SCOOP: No Supercharged Trackhawk Model For Jeep® Grand Cherokee (WL)!

SCOOP: No Supercharged Trackhawk Model For Jeep® Grand Cherokee (WL)!​

Sources Say, There Will NOT Be A Hellcat Model Of The New Grand Cherokee WL Platform...​


1625367744782.png

The Jeep® Grand Cherokee (WK2) Trackhawk is the most powerful and quickest two-row SUV ever. With its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 delivering 707 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque, the Trackhawk is capable of a 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, a quarter-mile run of 11.6 seconds, and a top speed of 180 mph. The two-row all-wheel-drive (AWD) performance SUV has been at the forefront of the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) battle against the world since its introduction in 2018, but that looks like it will be coming to an end after this year.

I hope at least one version of the GME-T6 will have a twin turbo. It will leave room for more power and upgrade.

NOT! Trailhawk would be trashed by the Tesla Model X which does 0 to 60 in 2.5 sec and is clearly the quickest production SUV.

Things are changing in spite of ones thinking or opinion, electric is in everyone’s future. My Challenger R/T is staying, no matter these changes and I’ll go with whatever is happening with my SUV future, no big deal there. I still believe the rush to electric is froth with challenges and pitfalls in battery material supply, power generation availability and disposal, among many as of yet unsustanibility realities. On the other hand some cool things also are seemingly in our electric future like charging waiting parties and silent early morning start ups on weekday sleep ins. Yea, life is changing.

Yeah Bill, If I had some money I build a mini casino with charging station on the I-15 border of Neveda and California

True.

But if we look at Mercedes for example, they have 2 versions of electric boost, an inline-6 with a conventional turbo and EQ-Boost good for 362hp and 368 pounds of torque, and another inline-6 similar to the above but with an additional electric supercharger making 430hp and 385 pounds of torque.
Audi also has a similar setup but with V6.
But all of them and beyond 450hp, it is V8 combinations. Only BMW is making 500~hp out of a 6-cylinder engine

So it will be interesting to see what Stellantis will do.

The Hellcat ICE powered vehicles tend to be a 3 season rides like the Tesla, but for different reasons. Under Arctic conditions, the Tesla products I have observed are barely able to maintain highway speeds as the extreme cold saps battery power. The Hellcat engine induction system has a lot of moving parts, made out of aluminum, interacting at very close tolerances. I'm sure a properly garaged vehicle with the supercharged engine could be driven in serious sub-zero temperatures, but that's what winter beaters are for.

Under more moderate temperatures, anywhere beyond the dragstrip, is where one can take advantage of any of the SRT vehicles. Such places are open, more remote areas which are many miles beyond the comforts of our modern era. I'm not against electric power, but there is a good reason hi-speed electric rail vehicles have overhead wire to draw power from.
