There are a couple of Jeeps coming out that we're more than just a little excited for. The first is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which is an even higher performance, Hellcat-powered version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The second is the long awaited and highly anticipated Wrangler pickup.
Jeep has now confirmed when we'll actually be seeing both of them.
, Jeep CEO/guy with truly excellent name Mike Manley said that we can expect to see the Trackhawk at the New York International Auto Show in April. While he didn't confirm that it will be Hellcat powered, he did say that there is enough of a difference from the regular SRT Grand Cherokee that both can co-exist peacefully. Like a Scat Pack and a Hellcat.
Now, the Wrangler pickup is going to be a bit later. We had originally heard that we'd see it in late 2017, but it seems that has been pushed back. Instead, we're likely to see the new Wrangler in the second half of 2017 and the pickup will debut in mid-2018, which means it'll either barely be a 2018 model or may start off as a 2019 model.
2019 can't come soon enough.
