Jeep examines the appearance of the charged Grand Wagoneer TrackhawkJuly 18, 2018
There can be no doubt that in the new version of the huge SUV from the American Jeep, under the hood is the good old Hellcat engine. Today, a document has been published that sheds some light on the possibility of the appearance of a high-performance version of the SUV.
Judging by the photo, at the present time, the Jeep management, at least, considers the appearance of the charged modification of its SUV. In this case, the model will receive the name Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk, and the most powerful 6.2-liter power V8 engine Hellcat with supercharged 719 horsepower. Most likely, a pair of it will be an 8-speed automatic transmission.
According to the published document, the American off-road car Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk will receive automatic transmission from the German brand ZF, and they even decided on the model – it turned out to be ZF-8HP95X. The production was carried out from April 2017 to May 2017.
If the decision to create a high-performance version of a full-size SUV is still accepted, then it is hardly possible to expect the appearance of a novelty before 2020. In this document there was an indication at once not several versions of the Hellcat engine. Spy photos that appeared last year showed that another American company Chrysler, is developing a modification of its model with the engine Hellcat. However, the company eventually decided not to let the charged sedan into production. The same can happen for the Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk.
In any case, the Jeep brand management still has plenty of time to think about how to respond and answer the question of whether to give a “charged” version of its SUV a green light or not.
