While in the U.S. standard gear in/on the Trackhawk will include:
- Eight-speed auto transmission

- Launch control

Jeep boss, Mike Manley, says the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the ultimate SUV.
“The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk delivers astounding performance numbers, backed by renowned SRT engineering that combines world-class on-road driving dynamics with luxury, refinement and an array of innovative advanced technology,”
“As the most powerful and quickest SUV, there is nothing else like the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in the market, and with its (U.S.) starting price of $85,900, there is no better value for a high-performance SUV.”
