As we have announced several times, both Co-Editor Jared Balfour and I are attending the SRT Hayes event at Grand Bend Motorplex in Grand Bend, Ontario this weekend. While I live in the Northern Detroit Suburbs and the event is only about an hour for myself to get there, Jared is driving our newly purchased 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk across Canada which is a three and half day adventure that covers about 4,600 kilometers (or for us Americans about 2,860 miles).
On the adventure, Jared has been documenting his trip with the 707 horsepower Grand Cherokee Trackhawk as his trip progresses via Vlog style on our YouTube channel. As the site has gotten bigger, we are putting more exclusive content on our YouTube channel, as well as some of our video content that makes it to the site like reviews get posted in advance, so be sure to subscribe.
Many of you were upset that we have gotten rid of our 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 so quickly, so Jared in the recent videos has gone through the details of why he got rid of the popular drag racer for the high-performance SUV. He also goes on to talk about how the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is for a long road trip. Many people who read our website or watch our videos, don’t see that while Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) might invite us to drive a vehicle that hasn’t been launched yet, or will send us a vehicle for the week, we only have so much limited time to really get to know the vehicle. Sometimes we spend only a few hours or only a few days to really see how good or bad a vehicle is.
Our long-term test vehicles here on MoparInsiders are owned by staff and its contributors. While we all are diehard Mopar fans, we are going to give you an honest opinion about what we love and or hate about the products. So be sure to watch Jared’s Vlog as he travels across the country and see his honest opinion of the Trackhawk and if it was a truly good idea to get rid of the R/T Scat Pack 1320 for the HELLCAT-powered Trackhawk.
