    Pfftt, ‘nothing else like’… yeah, because actual performance SUVs don’t suck anywhere near as bad. For that kind of money you’d be far better off buying an actual performance vehicle from an actual performance company like Porsche. Not just a tarted up Jeep. Don’t get me wrong, Jeeps are fine things, but this is a joke.

    That’s a joke. The Trailhawk trim is supposed to be for off-road use and I didn’t even see any tow hooks included, you couldn’t lock any of the differentials and it didn’t mention increased ground clearance or all terrain tires. By the way, who in the heck thinks it is a good idea to make a 180 mph jeep because I think the very notion is daft.

    I think you read it wrong. It’s a TRACKhawk… the Trailhawk is a completely different model (also available). FCA dropped the SRT naming with the Jeep brand, so that’s what they decided to rename it to. It’s the latest vehicle they’ve decided to drop the Hellcat engine into, and it’s been rumored for a year or so.

    That’s confusing… it seems they have both trims… I’m still not convinced the Grand Cherokee “Trailhawk” is all the great off-road… maybe if they put a Li’l Blue style suspension which is a independent suspension which articulateness as much as a fixed axle on it it might be more impressive (the chief argument against Little Blue was the cost and at $80K+ for some Grand Cherokees I don’t see that argument holding up.)
