The beast will be here by 2017.

It's been a while since we've heard of Jeep's plans to place a Hellcat engine into a Grand Cherokee. According to previous reports, "Project K" has been given the green light and the vehicle will be referred to as the "Trackhawk." Regardless of what the insane SUV will be called, the vehicle will still retain the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 when it comes out in 2017. That's right, Jeep brand CEO Mike Manley confirmed that there will be a Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee, which will arrive in 2017.

Brian Makse, an automotive journalist for Canada's Autofocus, questioned Manley about the powerful SUV. Manley gave a clear and straightforward answer, which you can see below.


As we've reported before, a Grand Cherokee with a Hellcat engine will be incredibly fast and one of the craziest vehicles ever made. Thanks to the HEMI V8, the "Trackhawk" will be able to get to 60 mph in under three seconds and onto a top speed of 200 mph. Soccer moms and Hellcat lovers alike can look forward to seeing the SUV before the end of 2017.
