Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trackhawk: Now you see it … now you don’t!

That axiom of practicing magicians also perfectly captures the Jeep brand’s attitude about the 2018 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the quickest, most powerful SUV … ever!

0-60 in 3.5 seconds, the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds and 180 mph top speed. With 707-horsepower at your command, now you see it, now you don’t, for sure!

And all that aggressiveness comes with plenty of exterior ‘support’, including a sculpted hood with dual heat extractors, Titanium-finish wheels with a Satin Chrome center cap, high-performance Brembo brakes (the largest standard front brakes ever on a Jeep vehicle), and “Supercharged” badges on both front doors and a Trackhawk liftgate badge.

Built for speed, but oh so comfortable on the inside with premium soft-touch materials and finishes, UConnect 8.4 touchscreen and, oh yeah … a 200 mph speedometer.

Scott Tallon, Director of  Jeep Brand Marketing, says the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is pure performance on steroids.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
