2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk V6 Turbo (0-60) in 4 seconds

I am very happy with FCA decision to produce the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The real winner configuration for me is :

A Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk V6 Turbo (0-60) in 4 Seconds that may put FCA in competition with the Porsche Macan, BMW X6 M and Mercedes Benz GLE63 S.

The size of the Jeep Cherokee fits me better than the Grand Cherokee if the price is 52K or below it will destroy Porsche, BMW and Mercedes.

Just wishful thinking it will be great if FCA get a pair and bring us the Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk in 2018.

Just for the record, your post is rather misleading as I thought this was something that was actually happening.

That being said, I wonder if the transmission could even handle the torque. From what I gather, the ZF 9HP handles up to around 350-360 ft. lbs of torque, and a turbo V6 would likely put it in the upper 300s to maybe close to 400hp in that form. If nothing else, FCA would have to rework the transmission to handle the torque, or simply use a different one altogether.

I suppose FCA would experiment with a KL SRT8. A Trackhawk KL would be over 500hp easily I would think, but I'd be curious if the Pentastar would even reach those kinds of numbers. It would likely need to be direct injected, on top of the turbo-charging, and then with better internals, and other do-dads, and then maybe it'd be feasible.

I'm confused. Is there a Cherokee KL Trackhawk coming in 2018? or a Grand Cherokee Trackhawk? or none of the above? is this just a wishful thinking post? Why Head the post with 2018 CHEROKEE Trackhawk V6 Turbo when there is no such thing? Ug!

Just use the engine/trans from the (FCA) Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio: 2.9L V6 Bi-Turbo - 505 hp - 443 ft/lbs in the KL.

Yum.

Would be nice but, that engine and transmission, 8sp ZF BTW, is not for traverse installation. Also the Stelvio SUV will be that form anyway later this year.

FYI the old Grand Cherokee SRT8 ran 4.4 seconds 0-60. The 2018 GC Trackhawk is listed at 0-60 in 2.7 seconds and for a mere $70,000

A Wrangler Trackhawk would be interesting. It already has a roll cage.
