Jeep’s most powerful and track-ready SUV, the updated 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, has arrived and brings the best value of all high performance SUVs in Australia for V8 enthusiasts.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s impressive performance – it can go 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds - is achieved through its supercharged 6.2-litre V8, upgraded high-torque-capacity TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, world-class on-road driving dynamics and Brembo brakes.

“Australia is FCA’s second largest market for V8’s outside of North America and it is important for us to be able to support Australians with one of the most powerful and fastest SUVs ever,” said Guillaume Drelon, Jeep Australia Director, Product. “We’re excited to provide even more customer value to what is already the best-value, track-ready SUV in the market.”

The 2020 update adds a Signature Laguna Leather Wrapped Interior Package as standard and sleek 20-inch black lightweight forged alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero 3 Season tyres, delivering over $13,000 worth of customer value for just $5,000.

The driver-focused interior features premium soft-touch materials, unique Light Black Chrome finishes and carbon fibre spears and a 7-inch driver information display instrument cluster, which features the tachometer in the middle.

The fourth-generation Uconnect 8.4 touch screen now sits flush mounted with the centre stack and instrument panel, featuring Trackhawk Performance Pages that showcase an array of performance timers and gauge readouts, including a new engine dynamometer screen that measures instantaneous horsepower, torque and current transmission gear.

Standard Launch Control optimises the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s performance by coordinating the engine, transmission, driveline and suspension for a textbook launch and consistent straight-line acceleration.

The Selec-Track® system on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk uses performance-tuned software to pre-configure and distinguish the five dynamic modes: Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow, enabling drivers to choose a vehicle setting that ideally meets their requirements and ambient conditions. The drive modes separately control the four-wheel-drive system, transmission, paddle shifters, suspension and electric power steering.

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk includes more than 70 safety and security features, including Trailer Hitch Camera View at Speed, which allows owners to view trailered items through the rear-mounted camera while moving.

Delivering improved customer value, Jeep Australia now has an all-new Capped Price Servicing Program for new customers in 2020, which applies to the MY20 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk range. The revised structure provides customers with transparency when they service their vehicle at a Jeep Dealership, with the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk capped at just $799 per service for the first five services.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is available in Dealerships nationwide, starting at $139,950.
