2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Test Drive
In a First Test review of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, we mentioned: “Yeah, severe away-roaders will want mechanical locking diffs front and rear, among other things, but for a tiny more than a Wrangler Rubicon (and less than half the price of a Land Cruiser), the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk offers up some significant off-road possible and on-road comfort at a fantastic price.”
In our First Look review of the Trackhawk variant, we stated, “Note that Jeep is claiming its baby is the world’s fastest SUV, but the track sheets from our Tesla Model X P90D (Ludicrous) advise that’ll be one photo-complete pull race (0-60 in 3.2, 11.7 at 116.0 mph in the quarter).” Thanks to its AWD system, we expect the Trackhawk to be the quickest Hellcat-powered model hitting 60 mph.
