Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Gets 890 HP From Geiger Cars

The Gulf Livery Is A Nice Touch, Too

Over the years Jeep has become more things to more people. From the spartan beginnings of the original Willys Jeep, to the paramount anchor of Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles’ entire global SUV strategy, a lot is riding on the brand’s rugged image. Then there’s the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

The Hellcat-powered super Jeep is as track oriented as any SUV can get, with 707 supercharged V8 horsepower on tap sending force to all four wheels paired with a warlike howl through a quartet of exhaust tips. But because enough is never enough, Germany’s Geiger Cars cranked things up from 11 to 12. The result of which is a bonkers 890 horsepower and 740 lb-ft of torque.

This is achieved via a custom supercharger with an increased boost pressure, new air intake, forged pistons, and more. Top speed is said to be 194 miles per hour, which pushes the top speed of the 5,363 lb SUV beyond the exotic Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga.

Geiger Cars also colored this Jeep Trackhawk with a timeless Gulf livery, as if were a Le Mans racer from the 1960s. The super Jeep also gained 22-inch black alloy wheels and a set of suspension lowering springs bringing the Trackhawk closer to the road by 25 millimeters, or nearly one inch.

GeigerCars is currently selling a used example of its Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk example for €129,000, which is around $144,000. For comparison, a stock Trackhawk will set you back at least $86,200. Which, again, is a 707 horsepower family vehicle.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.
