KIWI TRACKHAWK

NZV8 - - WORLD NEWS -

In the last is­sue, we men­tioned that the su­per­crazy Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has been con­firmed for the Aus­tralian and New Zealand mar­kets. Fur­ther de­tails on pric­ing and spec­i­fi­ca­tions are be pro­vided once a re­lease date has been con­firmed, but what we can tell you is what’s on the tech­ni­cal menu for over­seas mod­els — with an apol­ogy to read­ers who have al­ready read this in the pre­vi­ous is­sue; we’ll keep it short. The Trackhawk is to be pow­ered by a Hell­cat­derived su­per­charged 6.2-litre Hemi pro­duc­ing 707hp and 645lb·ft, backed by an eight­speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and a mod­ern four-wheel-drive sys­tem. The cul­mi­na­tion of this brute force and tech­nol­ogy is re­ported per­for­mance stats of a 3.6-sec­ond sprint from 0–100kph, and an 11.6-sec­ond quar­ter-mile. We’ll keep you posted as more in­for­ma­tion is re­vealed.
