Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Jeep’s compact Cherokee and Wagoneer proved popular after their debuts for 1984, and parent AMC was already working on a larger replacement when Chrysler bought the company in 1987. Chrysler had other priorities, so it took until the 1993 model year for the replacement to go on sale. At that point the decision was made to keep the old type in production and position the new vehicle upmarket as the Grand Cherokee and Grand Wagoneer.

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.
