We already wrote about the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and its pros and cons. We already mentioned its top of the class version, but now it will get a special attention. The reason is a huge output of the performance-tuned 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
Regular model of the SUV can make 300-350 horses. The SRT version is way ahead with 475 horsepower rating. But, compared to Trackhawk, it is nothing. A 6.2-liter engine is delivering 707 ponies. Again, Grand Cherokee does not stop there. The brand-new tuning by Hennessey will make this crossover explode with 850 horses. We hope everything ends here since nobody knows what would be the next step. A 1000 hp SUV?
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Engine Specs
So, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is using the largest powertrain in the lineup. The crossover is coming with a 3.6-liter V-6 as the base engine, and a 5.7-liter V-8 also available for the regular model. Diesel unit is the least potent. An SRT version gets 475 hp and 470 pound-feet from 6.4-liter mill. But, none of these can compare to a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 beast delivering 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque.
Hennessey Makes it Even Better
Hellcat engine is astonishing and breathtaking without any upgrades. But, it doesn’t stop the Hennessey Performance Engineering to add more power and make it even stunning. The HPE850 upgrade pumps 145 horses more into the V-8 unit. Total output is unbelievable. The company released official records claiming their 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can make 852 hp and 845 lb-ft of torque.
Every pony in this is a mile-high jump. So, a boost of 150 horses is not easy to achieve. The vehicle was tested, and the tuners could see their job is successful. Both hardware and software of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk were revisited. Thanks to a high-flow air induction system, the SUV gains most of its additional power. Hennessey PE tested the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with a rear-wheel drive configuration. Well, an AWD mode would definitely drop these numbers of 852 hp and 845 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk HPE1000 Upgrade
The performance tuners are not stopping here. According to rumors, the HPE850 upgrade of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is just a step before they create the next one. As we mentioned, we could see 1000 horses coming out from the next update of the 6.2-liter V-8 Hellcat engine. However, this is just a rumor at the moment. But, don’t let the HPE surprise you as they did with 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and its 850 horses.
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Price and Purchase
The order of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is available on the official Hennessey Performance Engineering website. Also, the upgrades are available in New Zealand and Australia at local salons, who have cooperation with HPE. While we are waiting for the next update, 1000 hp+ Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the company will already install their packages in other performance-oriented SUVs, trucks, and muscle cars, making them faster.
