Jeep CEO promises Grand Cherokee Hellcat before the end of 2017But why wait?
Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed to writer/driver Brian Makse at the Detroit auto show this week that the Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat would be available before the end of 2017. Make then broadcast the news through his YouTube channel (see below).
The Hellcat will feature the 700bhp version of Chrysler’s 6.2 litre Supercharged V8, the same lump that propels the Charger and Challenger. Some reports last year suggested that the All-Wheel-Drive platform of the Grand Cherokee would not be able to harness the full power available but Chrysler’s engineers have obviously rubbished this fear. Not only does this trump the likes of BMW and Porsche with their SUVs offering 500bhp+ but it trumps it in a very big way indeed. Even the Range Rover Sport SVR cannot achieve that kind of performance.
Jeep are officially stating a 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds!
But why wait until then? Nene Overland can already offer you a Supercharged Jeep Grand Cherokee with 700bhp on tap and a stunning and exclusive body kit to go with it!
