With that in mind that we sat down with two of the men responsible for the 2018 New Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the latest entry into the absurd and gloriously pointless segment. We wanted to find out from Darryl Smith, director for SRT engineering, and Paul Mackiewicz, vehicle development manager, if there were actual market-based reasons for the Trackhawk’s creation. Effectively, why’d they actually do it?

Of course, expanding the 6.2-liter Hellcat engine beyond the Challenger and Charger is clearly a smart business case in the current SUV-obsessed marketplace. FCA had a lust-worthy engine, and it had a solid performance base in the existing Grand Cherokee SRT, so it can be argued that marrying the two made sense and that it could be done with minimal fuss — even if in practical terms, it’s absurd.

“All the 2018 New Grand Cherokee components were changed to accommodate the engine, not the other way around,” said Mackiewicz, so a customer will still be enjoying the same Hellcat glory but in a bigger, more functional vehicle.

Only the exhaust manifold and front thermostat housing were changed for packaging reasons. Meanwhile, the drive shaft, half shafts and transfer case were swapped out for stronger parts to better handle the much higher torque. The eight-speed ZF transmission is also upgraded to a stronger “HP95” unit (the Hellcats have a “HP90” unit that doesn’t have to work with a transfer case).

Changes elsewhere are light, as much of the Trackhawk carries over from the 2018 New Grand Cherokee SRT model that will continue to be produced. In fact, the Trackhawk’s stickier tires will trickle down to the SRT to minimize complexity.
