Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Unveiled At 2017 NYIAS: Video

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Unveiled At 2017 NYIAS: Video

This is perhaps a worthy competitor to the Range Rover Sport SVR

The Dodge Challenger DRT Demon was not the only wild car showcased at the 2017 New York Auto show this year. Jeep also took covers of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk which is a wilder variant of the standard Grand Cherokee. Now this car is not only powerful but can also reach a top speed of 180-mph.

Powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, this unit is capable of producing about 707 Hp of peak power. This is the same unit which also powers the Hellcat as well. The FCA engineers surely made some serious amount of effort to swap the whole engine. The V8 is capable of producing about 707 Hp of peak power and 645 lb-ft of torque. Believe it or not but the Trackhawk can sprint from 0-60 mph mark in 3.5 seconds. Furthermore, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk also gets a computer-controlled adaptive suspension system which enhances the overall driving experience. Furthermore, it also gets many different driving modes as well including Track mode which transfers 70 percent of the power output to the rear wheels. The SUV further also gets bigger brakes towards the front wheels. The overall aerodynamics of the SUV has also been improved to make it faster. However, the ride height of the SUV has been lowered to improve the handling dynamics.

To further enhance the track driving experience the Trackhawk also gets a launch control. Although, this is not as wild as the Challenger SRT Demon remember that the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can comfortably sit five occupants inside and can still do its job.

So keeping all that in mind finally we can say that Land Rover Range Sport SVR finally has competition? Do leave your views on what exactly do you think about this beast of an SUV.

Can A Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Beat A Plane On Track: Video

Can A Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Beat A Plane On Track: Video

Jeep VS Plane is really an odd combination by the way

This is definitely one interesting video where a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT takes on a Plane on Track. Well! You read that right this SUV will take on a plane on the race track. Now that the Jeep brand has made their mark on the Indian market and already launched three new cars including the Grand Cherokee SRT this is definitely a instruction video which actually will give those an idea what the Grand Cherokee SRT is actually capable of.

Here in this video you can watch the Grand Cherokee which packs a V8 motor that packs about 461 Hp of peak power. The SUV has got four wheel drive and many other equipments which actually makes this SUV we ll equipped and appropriate for this battle. On the other hand you have actually got a single seater plane which according to the pilot packs about 107 Hp of peak power. Now although the power on the plane seems to be less compared to the massive power that the Jeep has but this definitely wont effect the race much because obviously an aeroplane will be lot faster than the Jeep because it obviously wont have much obstruction once it takes off from the ground.

Watch and enjoy the video because this is really an interesting video which I am sure all of you will enjoy watching.

Indian born Australian made a funny video mocking Jeep Chrysler

Indian born Australian made a funny video mocking Jeep Chrysler

It is not very often you buy an expensive luxury car with your hard earned money. And it is very unlikely that you face troubles and troubles after buying the car. But when you do, there is nothing more annoying and disturbing than this situation. Exactly that happened with Teg Sethi, who is an Indian born living in Australia. He bought a Jeep Cherokee, which is one of the hard core luxurious SUV, which started troubling just after buying the car. Many of us would rather sell the car after using it for some time with difficulties. But Teg did something unique and crazy. He made an unique rap video bashing the Jeep Chrysler and posted it online which became immense hit in YouTube.

Rap songs are something which catches people fast. Teg Sethi decided to make a rap video describing his experience with the Jeep Grand Cherokee which he bought for $60000. As we can see in the video, it features Teg and his Grand Cherokee. To make a fun of the Jeep Teg replaced the original registration plate which reads “LEMON”. This videos also gives a hint, that there might be a few next videos too mocking at Jeep Chrysler. Surprisingly, Teg is not the only one, who has experienced such annoyance. Earlier, an Australian couple, Ashton and Vanessa Wood, became so dissatisfied with their Jeep that they decided to destroy it publicly. They faced 22 issues and that too for 4 years continuously. They destroyed their Jeep into pieces, burned it and buried the remains. They even opened a website for this and created a Facebook page too, which was named as “Destroy My Jeep”.

2014 Delhi Auto Expo: Jeep Grand Cherokee, Wrangler's India launch delayed

2014 Delhi Auto Expo: Jeep Grand Cherokee, Wrangler’s India launch delayed

We were hoping to visit the Chrysler-Jeep stall at the Delhi Auto Expo this year. That, it seems will not happen. Jeep a subsidiary of the Chrysler Group has put its plans on hold for the time being. The company was expected to make an announcement during the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. In fact, they seemed pretty confident about the first two cars they lined-up for India.

Some experts believe, it is the slowly local economy that has prompted them to delay their India debut. Last year, Jeep made it quite clear that the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler models will head their offensive in the subcontinent. However, the brand needs a good start to be able to stand up to the German competition.

The initial plan was to launch the products by the end of last year. Now, the launch of the Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Wrangler could be shelved until the end of first quarter.

“What I did was take another view of Jeep during the year and felt that 2013 wasn’t the right year with those changes to launch Jeep,” said Michael Manley, President and Chief Executive of Jeep while talking to journalists at the Detroit motor show.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep claims that their SUVs are the perfect off road vehicles and making them even more special and unique are the set of more than 1000 parts which you can buy as accessories. We had reported last month that Jeep, which is a part of the Chrysler group, now owned by Fiat, is planning to enter the Indian market and their first vehicle would be the Grand Cherokee. It is now almost certain that Jeep would be re-entering the Indian market either in 2012 or in the following year. “We recognise that Indian customers appreciate good value and we are keen to provide that with our Grand Cherokee,” said Jeep President and CEO Michael Manley, who is almost a regular visitor to India now. One of the pioneers of the SUV segment, the Grand Cherokee represents a bigger and better version of Jeep’s smaller Cherokee. The intent was to design a manoeuvrable SUV which would work well both in urban conditions and was also capable to reach remote campsites. Though the pricing of the SUV is still purely speculative, we expect it to be under 40lakhs.

Fiat to bring Jeep Grand Cherokee to India by 2014

Fiat to bring Jeep Grand Cherokee to India by 2014

SUV enthusiasts have been probably waiting for this for a long long time. Jeep, the full size American icon, according to Autocar India magazine is being seriously considered by Fiat to be brought into India as early as 2014. If the brand does come into India then in all probability it could be the Jeep Grand Cherokee which would be the first of their products to come into India. It Jeep manages to get local assembly then the SUV could be priced under 40lakhs which would make it compete with the Mitsubishi Montero and the Land Rover Freelander.

Jeep is part of the Chrysler group which is now owned by Fiat and over the last few years Jeep has been getting diesel engines in their SUV keeping the European market in their mind. For the India market now these SUV’s make sense especially now because they now come with diesel engines. Speaking to Autocar India, Michael Manley, CEO and President of Jeep said, ‘We recognize that Indian customers appreciate good value and we are keen to provide that with our Grand Cherokee.’ If Fiat does eventually launch the Jeep brand in India, it is not just the Cherokee that could come to our market and we could also get SUV’s like the Patriot, Commander and the Compass.
