Fiat Chrysler SA has confirmed that it is planning to bring the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to SA. Sitting above the SRT model, the Trackhawk will be an all-out road racer with over 522kW courtesy of the Hellcat engine from the Dodge Charger and Challenger. Four-wheel drive will help the Trackhawk reach 100km/h quicker using its launch control system than in the rear-wheel drive Dodge models.
The model will arrive in SA in limited numbers in 2018 after its reveal at April’s New York auto show. Not only will it boast a full Race Mode, dynamic handling-optimised suspension and massive brakes, but it will also get two keys. Only one of the keys will allow the driver access to the full power of the machine in the same way as the two keys operate on the Bugatti Veyron. – BD Motor News
