Australian pricing for the 522kW Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has been revealed, as well as local specification for the fastest production Jeep.

At $134,900, it’s almost $45,000 more expensive than the SRT8. But the Trackhawk also has 178kW more, as well as its 868Nm well and truly eclipsing the SRT8’s 624Nm.

The supercharged 6.2-litre Hemi V8 – combined with its 8-speed automatic gearbox – can pull the Trackhawk to 100km/h in a physics-defying 3.7 seconds, and run a quarter-mile in 11.6s.

The options and specs listing for Australian Jeeps reveal it comes with Bilstein adaptive dampers, 20-inch alloys, 295/45 Pirelli P Zero tyres, and Brembo brakes which can pull the 2.4-tonne Trackhawk up in just 37m.


Jeep Australia president Steve Zanlunghi says interest in the Trackhawk was overwhelming in Australia as soon as it was revealed.

“After months of anticipation, I’m elated to announce the Trackhawk has landed,” says Zanlunghi.

“The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk not only sets new standards in the Australian SUV market, but the overall performance car market.


“In terms of value for money in the performance segment, it will be difficult to find anything else that comes close.

“As soon as we announced that the Trackhawk was destined for Australia, our dealers were inundated with enquiry and started taking orders.”

All 62 Trackhawks which were initially allocated to Australia – a reference to the 6.2-litre engine displacement – have been already spoken for by keen Mopar fans.

However, Jeep says it’s still taking orders for the Trackhawk from customers, meaning more should be on the way.
