How Much is a Used Jeep Trackhawk? A Complete Guide on Prices and Features
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is an unusual creature. At first glance, it looks like an ordinary, albeit premium large SUV.
But this isn’t your typical SUV, and under its hood lies one of the most powerful engines you’ll find in its class, delivering the kind of performance you’d typically only find in a sports car. This is a car that’s just as capable on the track as it is on the school run.
First, the engine: the base 2021 Model comes with a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine with 707hp and 645lbs of torque. This reflects in its muscular driving performance, capable of hitting 60MPH in just 3.5 seconds. Towing performance is similarly excellent, and the latest Trackhawk can easily haul up to 7,200lbs. That’s powerful enough for a mid-sized camper trailer.
These are accompanied by a set of Italian-made Brembo Brakes, typically only found in high-end performance cars, like the Ferrari 488 Spider. Given the powerful engine lurking within the Trackhawk, a decent braking system is a necessity, and these surely deliver.
Jeep tries to make the driving experience straightforward by offering a set of pre-set driving modes, which automatically customize torque and transmission shift times based on the situation. While the vehicle can select these independently, the Trackhawk allows users to manually select the mode most appropriate for their needs. There’s a configuration for track driving, towing, wintery conditions, and more.
And, with a price tag of $87,650, the 2021 Trackhawk is fitted with the bells and whistles expected of a high-end vehicle. Think power-adjustable leather seats, dual-zone climate control, a generous 8.4-inch infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, and a powerful Alpine audio system.
Powerful? Yes. Cheap? Not so much, both when it comes to its list price and fuel consumption. But can you find a bargain on the used market?
How Much is a Used Jeep Trackhawk?
Jeep introduced the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in 2018. Since its launch, the pricing hasn’t changed much. The 2018 model had a MSRP of $85,900. In 2019, that jumped to $86,650, and to $87,000 in 2020.
Remarkably, the Trackhawk has proven quite adept when it comes to resisting the forces of deprecation, with the prices for the earliest 2018 models hovering between $70,000 and $80,000, depending on configuration, mileage, and condition.
However, due to the recent introduction and low volumes it’s also incredibly hard to find on the used market.
Fortunately, there are alternatives. While few SUVs provide the same fearsome power of the Trackhawk, if you’re willing to sacrifice some horsepower, you can find a vehicle that’s easily available pre-owned, and much more affordable. Here are some worth considering.
