The new generation of the legendary SUV is on the way and we count on loads of novelties and improvements. Of course, we have no doubt that the new model will also come with a variety of versions in the offer. That would include the hi-performance 2021 Jeep Trackhawk as well. This is the most capable version of the current model in terms of speed and acceleration, so we have no doubt that would be the case with the new model as well.
At this point, it is still early to talk about details, but we are pretty sure that the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will come with the same approach, which includes not just a monstrous engine, but also a variety of mechanical upgrades, as well as a lot of styling and interior details. This time, we expect that we won’t have to wait for too long and that the Trackhawk will come along with the rest of the lineup.
2021 Jeep Trackhawk Engine
Of course, the most prominent aspect of this version will be the engine. The current model comes with a monstrous 6.2-liter Supercharged V8, the same one that debuted in Dodge Challenger Hellcat. It features a max output of 707 horsepower, while the max torque has been slightly detuned, due to a little bit different exhaust design and goes around 645 pound-feet. Along with the powerful engine, there is also an upgraded 8-speed transmission. Such combination provides spectacular performances, as this version needs just 3.5 seconds to hit 60 mph.
We have no doubt that the 2021 Jeep Trackhawk specs will be even more impressive. We are pretty sure that the new model will carry on with the same model, though the numbers could be even higher in terms of power and torque. Of course, this would also result in an even quicker 0-60 time. At this point, the exact details are still unavailable.
2021 Jeep Trackhawk Chassis and Suspension Setup
The current model comes with loads of upgrades compared to standard models. Besides, a more powerful engine, this version also comes with loads of new mechanical features. Some of the highlights are things like Quadra-Trac Active On-Demand four-wheel-drive system, the Selec-Trac traction management system, and quad exhaust tips. Still, the thing we like most about this version is the suspension setup, which is adaptive and brings numerous benefits in terms of handling and overall performances. Along with them, there are also performance Brembo brakes.
Without any doubt, the new Jeep Trackhawk 2021 would come in the same manner, but the thing that should make the biggest difference should be a new platform. Allegedly, the new model will ride on Alfa Romeo’s Giorgio platform. Despite that spy shots clearly show that the new generation will be notably larger, this platform would provide significant weight reductions, which in practice means a significantly higher level of athleticism and overall performances.
Styling and Interior Design
When it comes to the styling, we have no doubt that the new version will also come with loads of exclusive details. Of course, this would include a sporty body kit, unique wheels and tires, as well as slightly revisions on parts like the grille, headlights etc. Still, the overall design will be pretty similar to the rest of the lineup. The new generation is about to keep Grand Cherokee’s familiar look, so the changes should be only evolutionary.
On the other side, we could on significantly improved interior, as well as more exclusive details in this particular version. Of course, this would include a long list of standard equipment, but also some unique details, such as sporty seats, pedals, exclusive trim and other materials etc.
2021 Jeep Trackhawk Release Date and Price
It looks like we won’t have to wait for too long to see the new 2021 Jeep Trackhawk. Most likely, it will come along with the rest of the lineup, or just a couple of months later. In any case, that should happen by the end of the year. When it comes to the price, the current model starts around 87.500 dollars and we don’t expect a significant increase for the new model.
Engine lineup for the next-generation allegedly leaked
According to Motor1, the list of engines for the next generation of Grand Cherokee leaked and it looks like we will see some interesting novelties. First of all, it looks like the new turbo-four will be also in the offer, while the current Pentastar V6 will be available in a hybrid setup only. On the other side, V8 engines are about to carry on in the same way, though we might see some increase in terms of power. As you probably know, the diesel version has been discontinued recently and it looks like it won’t be in the offer for the next generation either. A new turbo inline-six gasoline engine has been rumored as well, though it may come a couple of years later.
