Jeep has revealed the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk just before the New York Motor Show. The Grand Cherokee gets its engine from the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

The 6.2-litre supercharged V8 present underneath the bonnet of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can churn out a mind-boggling 717hp and 874 Nm of torque. This makes it the most powerful series production SUV in the world. It can out-accelerate the Range Rover SVR, Bentley Bentayga, and Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.

Jeep's latest iteration of the Grand Cherokee can go from 0-100kmph in 3.5 seconds before it goes on to hit a top speed of 290kmph. It's closest competition will remain the Bentley Bentayga. The British SUV has more than 100hp less than the Grand Cherokee but it still has a better top speed of 301kmph.

Power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Braking is taken care of by Brembo discs. In the front there is a 400mm disc with six piston calipers and at the rear there is a 350mm disc with four piston calipers.

The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will occupy the flagship throne in the Cherokee line-up from Jeep.
