Putting that much power to the ground through a road car’s four-wheel drive system is no easy task, and one can imagine Jeep’s engineers will have to beef up the Grand Cherokee’s drivetrain in the process. Or, as C/D hints, perhaps forgo four-wheel drive altogether.
Regardless of drive type, all that punch under the Jeep hood could permit the rugged family hauler a zero to 60 mph sprint time in the low four second region. The current range-topping 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor (pictured above) achieves the feat in 4.8 seconds.
As far as pricing goes, the base Trackhawk would likely match evenly with the current SRT-branded Grand Cherokee ($65,000), while the Hellcat-powered version would carry a premium above its brother.
