Is there anything interesting about its design?
You’ll need to be a bit of a Jeep tragic to spot the changes between the SRT and Trackhawk, but they are there.
Based on the five-door, five-seat MY17 Grand Cherokee, the Trackhawk’s most obvious signatures are the yellow Brembo calipers – six-piston front and four-piston rear – and the unique black chrome quad exhaust pipe treatment.
Speaking of the brakes, they dwarf even those used by Supercar race rigs, with 400mm front rotors and 350mm rears. A Supercar uses 395mm front rotors.
The body-coloured wheel arch flares and bonnet vents are shared with the SRT, but the Trackhawk gets its own set of massive 20x10-inch rims fitted with 295/45 ZR20 Pirelli tyres. It’s homologated for both Scorpion Verde run-flat and P-Zeros, and word is the Australia will offer the latter, along with a carryover 20-inch black rim that’s slightly lighter than the stock item.
Its LED headlights also get a bespoke black treatment to set them apart.
It’s a similarly low-key story inside, with the dark suede and leather interior spiced up with black chrome and carbon trim pieces, as well as Trackhawk logos on the seats and a 320km/h speedo on the digital dash.
Red seatbelts and Trackhawk-specific front seats are likely to be optional extras, and standard on the Launch Edition.
If you like 'em blocky and unpretentious, the Grand Cherokee is for you.
