If you’ve ever wanted to haul the family along with over 700 horsepower, your wait is almost over! The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is about to come barreling into dealerships and tracks across the states. This 707-horsepower Jeep has all the speed and roar of its Hellcat-powered cousins, and tons of SUV ability to boot. If your deep desire for a supercar is hindered by your need for practicality, Jeep finally has the perfect vehicle for you.

That massive Hellcat engine is good for more than just a 3.5-second zero-to-60 time. In addition to its famous 707 hp, it also produces 645 lb-ft of torque. All of that power gets distributed to all four wheels, which gets you a lot more capability in addition to your scorching quarter-mile. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is rated to tow 7,200 pounds, and it carries five passengers and your dog with ease. While it’s meant for the track more than the trails, it still has standard AWD that gives it much better grip in any weather condition than other performance vehicles.

When you do hit the track, you’ll be amazed by the performance this SUV puts down. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk goes from zero to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. It comes back to a complete stop from 60 mph in only 114 feet. Aside from forward and stop, it also offers 0.88 G maximum lateral acceleration. You’ll blow through a quarter mile in just 11.6 seconds. All of these numbers are even more impressive when you remember that you’re at the wheel of an SUV with a curb weight just shy of 5,400 pounds. The Hellcat engine is paired with Jeep’s 8HP95 transmission, which holds up the revs and keeps you in the right gear for whatever you’re demanding of it.

The clever engineering of the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk makes it the perfect mix of refined grown-up SUV and noisy, wild hellion. There’s a special resonator built into the Jeep’s induction system that helps reduce noise at idle. But don’t worry: when you punch the accelerator, the Trackhawk launches forward with all the noise and power you expect from a Hellcat. Additionally, the Trackhawk’s launch control system means that it leaps forward immediately at your urging, unlike its lighter Dodge Hellcat cousins. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a Torque Reserve system much like the one in the Dodge Demon. Torque Reserve lets the supercharger spin faster and make more boost while it’s stationary. It also doesn’t limited any torque in first gear, so once you complete the Launch Control sequence, the Trackhawk is off like a shot.
