Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat

Jeep Gladiator While an ‘official’ statement has yet to be released, it’s a foregone conclusion that within the next couple of years, the roadways will be graced with the presence of a new Jeep pickup and Grand Cherokee Hellcat.

Last week, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Jeep brand head Mike Manley declared that “before the end of 2017”, a Hellcat engine would be placed inside a Jeep Grand Cherokee – which is music to many ears. If true, the 707-hp, supercharged V-8 engine would make the new Grand Cherokee arguably the fastest SUV on the planet.

Another bombshell was the announcement of a new Jeep Wrangler-based pickup truck. Expected by the end of 2017, the truck would fill the void left by previous Jeep pickups, such as the Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler, Jeepster and Comanche. Plus, with a gluttony of large and mid-size pickups already on the road, a smaller pickup truck would be a sight for sore eyes.
