LEAKED! – This is the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. Not Trackhawk

There is an amazing expectation on a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Hellcat engine. But it was not this time. Leaked images have shown the new Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. It should be a more capable car in trails, but it apparently uses common tires, what has lead some people to deem it as the Trackhawk version, with the amazing Hellcat 6.2 V8 supercharged engine. Not this time, folks.

Besides the Trailhawk badges, the new version is denounced by red inserts, a higher ground clearance and that’s pretty much all that makes it any different. We are still waiting for the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee. An SUV that is exactly the opposite of what an SUV should be. Maybe this is why Jeep will first present the Trailhawk version: to keep the balance.
