Held in storage following Shakur’s tragic death, the Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed at the Detroit auto show that a Jeep Grand Cherokee with a version of the 707-horsepower Hellcat engine would be on the market by the end of 2017.
“Not only can I put a Hellcat motor in a (Jeep) Grand Cherokee, I’m going to bring that to market by the end of 2017 – just for you,” he jokingly told journalist Brian Makse on camera. Hummer was won in a 2003 raffle organized by BET in the "Picture Me Rollin’’ sweepstakes, and then later purchased back in 2007 by Havenotz Entertainment owners Sardar ‘Candyman 187’ Khan and Yaasmyn Fula, the latter being the mother of fellow rapper Yaki ‘Prince’ Kadafi, a ‘godbrother’ of Shakur who lost his own life just two months after that of his friend and fellow Outlawz rapper.
Manley made the comment to Makse during a video interview at the show for his YouTube channel. Jeep hasn’t officially confirmed that it will come, or when, or whether it will even be dubbed a Hellcat model, as the name Trackhawk has also been speculated in various online reports.
That 707 hp figure quite easily trumps the already formidable 485 hp SRT Grand Cherokee as the most powerful Jeep ever. Depending on final output and acceleration figures, it will likely challenge the Bentley Bentayga and the Tesla Model X by the time it arrives for the titles of most powerful and fastest SUVs on the planet.
