    Spying: Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, Now Without Camo


    • The little things give away the true identity of this Grand Cherokee

    The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk we know is real and coming thanks to Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirming it earlier this year. We now have the first spy shots of the Trackhawk, minus the camouflage.

     

    As we had suspected from earlier spy shots, the Trackhawk is sporting larger air intakes up front. The grille has been narrowed to allow for one of the intakes. The rest of this enginnering mule looks similar to your standard Grand Cherokee SRT.

     

    We know that the Trackhawk will be getting the 6.2L supercharged Hellcat V8. What we don't know is how much power the V8 will produce. As we reported previously, engineers were having issues with the driveline not being able to handle the Hellcat's power.

      Previous Page Next Page Say hello to the new 2017 Jeep Compass. The new model which will replace both the current Compass and Patriot was revealed last night at FCA's Brazilian Jeep Assembly Plant in Goiana, Pernambuco.
      As we saw in spy photos last week, the new Compass' exterior looks like a mashup of Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. The interior looks to be more like the Cherokee with a similar design and layout. Jeep is keeping quiet on powertrains for the new Compass. They did reveal that the Compass would offer “17 fuel-efficient powertrain options for consumers in more than 100 countries around the world.” Many believe the U.S.-spec Compass will come with a 2.0L turbo-four and a 2.4L Tigershark four-cylinder. Both engines will come paired with a nine-speed automatic.
      We'll learn more about the Compass this November as it will debut at the LA Auto Show.

      We know that Jeep is planning to replace the Compass and Patriot with one new model later this year, and we now have our first look at it undisguised. Brazilan outlet AUTOO got their hands of the new model before a photo shoot. 
      We can't tell if the name is Compass or something else on the front door due to the poor quality of the pictures. Everyone seems to believe it is Compass so we're going with that. The design looks to be a mashup of Grand Cherokee in the front and Cherokee for the remainder. There is the iconic seven-slot grille up front, albeit somewhat narrow. 
      AUTOO says the Brazilian-spec Compass will be offered with a 2.0L Tigershark four-cylinder or 2.0L Turbodiesel. Both engines will come paired with a nine-speed automatic and the choice of front or all-wheel drive. It would be safe to assume that the U.S. version will come with the 2.4L Tigershark.
      Jeep will debut the next Compass at the at the São Paulo Auto Show in Brazil this November. Expect a debut for the U.S. sometime thereafter.
