Jeep’s 707-hp Grand Cherokee Trackhawk won’t be muscling its way into showrooms until a fourth quarter of the year, and one lucky YouTuber has managed to spend some time behind the wheel.
The video below comes from the YouTube channel Sinister Life and features the pre-production vehicle with the right-hand drive configuration.
For whatever reason, this Fiat Chrysler Automobiles engineer testing this vehicle allowed someone from the channel to hop behind the wheel.
We should stress that since it is the pre-production vehicle, its performance doesn’t constitute what buyers can expect in a final production version. For example, the vehicle is clocked at 3.8 seconds for 0-60 mph run.
Jeep’s official numbers include the 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds, the quarter mile time of 11.6 seconds, and the top speed of 180 mph, we aren’t about to argue with them.
Based on the comments in this video description, the Cherokee Trackhawk felt fast but not on the same level as the Charger SRT Hellcat which features a same 6.2-liter supercharged V-8.
There was also apparently considerable torque steer, as now a power is also going out through the front wheels.
We will have to wait until the launch later this year to bring you the first drive review. In addition to the driving qualities, we are also waiting to learn of the price.
We have previously heard that the starting price will be approximately $80K.
