2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to cost $85,900
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will go on sale in the final quarter of this year with a base price tag of $85,900, the luxury auto manufacturer announced on Wednesday.
The heavy price tag of upcoming 707-horsepower vehicle doesn’t include $1,095 in destination charges. The total price of the Grand Cherokee will thus be nearly $20,000 more than the next most powerful jeep in the category.
The next most powerful Grand Cherokee will be available with price tag of $66,895, which has a paltry 475 horsepower.
The Trackhawk looks very expensive but it also boasts some very striking features. With 707 horsepower, it will give riders a thrilling experience. It will sprint from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds and can cross the quarter mile in merely 11.6 seconds.
Given enough runway, it can hit a top speed of 180 miles per hour. In addition, it can tow 7,200 pounds.
Looking at its rivals, the BMW X5 M, Range Rover Sport SVR, and Porsche Cayenne Turbo start in the six-figure range, but lag well behind the Trackhawk in terms of performance.
