Jeep Cherokee Hellcat

Posted by: Lydia Siu onJanuary 21st, 2016


The 2016 Detroit Auto Show was full of surprises, but none more interesting than hearing right from Jeep CEO Mike Manley that he plans to officially bring to market a new vehicle with their Hellcat label, this time being the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This news definitely got that little kid inside of me jumping for joy.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee will get a 6.2L supercharged V8 crammed into its engine bay. This is the engine that is shared with the Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat models which churns out a tire shredding 707hp. This is quite a hefty boost from their already capable Grand Cherokee SRT which packs a 6.4L HEMI V8 with 475hp.

Whether or not the Cherokee will be badged as a “Hellcat” or “Trackhawk” is yet to be determined. But who cares when nobody will be able to see those badges as you leave them in a cloud of dust.
