Consumer Guide Automotive Even in the rarified world of sub-4-second 0-60 cars, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk stands out. But not for the reason you might expect.

The traditional sedan is dead. Ask any product planner at any manufacturer, and he or she will tell you just that. Toyota’s RAV4 compact crossover has been outselling the brand’s Camry sedan for a while now… and the Camry had previously been America’s most-popular vehicle (that wasn’t a full-size pickup) for many years running.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

At the 2017 New York Auto Show earlier this month, Jeep announced the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, a new line-topping high-performance model that borrows its 707-hp supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 from the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcats. At a recent Midwest Automotive Media Association event, we had the chance to check out a Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in the flesh—in fact, it was the first time the vehicle had been shown outside the lights and stage of an indoor auto show. This show vehicle wore a stunning candy-apple-red paint job that won’t be available on the showroom version, but otherwise looked to be almost identical to the regular-production Trackhawks that are scheduled begin hitting dealerships late this year. Check it out, and stay tuned… our first test drive of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk should take place later this year.

When “plenty” is nowhere near enough ….

New York Auto ShowJeep has long sold performance-oriented SRT versions of its midsize Grand Cherokee SUV, recent editions offering a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 with a rousing 475 horsepower. But that’s chickenfeed next to the Grand Cherokee introduced at the New York Auto Show.

1984 Mercedes-Benz 240D Ad

If you were paying attention to marketing in 1984, you likely remember Apple’s landmark television advertisement “1984.” The computer maker’s ad portrayed a dystopian world chillingly similar to the one conceived by George Orwell in his horrifying 1949 novel of the same name.

Consumer Guide First Spin Jeep, a name virtually synonymous with SUVs for more than three-quarters of a century, has hit the mother lode in recent years as buyers suddenly began flocking to that market. And in the hottest segment of that market – compact SUVs – the company has long had three entries, together accounting for half of its entire model portfolio.
