Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk for 2021 has astonishing performance – we’re talking zero to 100km/h in 3.7 seconds from a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 – has been upgraded.

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

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

The fourth-generation Uconnect 8.4 touch screen now sits flush mounted with the centre stack and instrument panel. It features Trackhawk Performance Pages with an array of performance timers and gauge readouts.

It now has 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 perfect launch.

The Selec-Track system uses performance-tuned software to pre-configure and distinguish the five dynamic modes: Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow, enabling drivers to choose the vehicle setting that ideally meet 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 the front seat occupants to view trailered items through the rear-mounted camera while moving.

“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 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is available now in dealerships Australia wide, starting at $139,950.
