Goodwood Festival of Speed is the world's biggest celebration of motor-sports and motoring culture and would not be complete without Jeep®. It will be present with the best of its range in terms of innovation, off-road capability and performance. A full overview, at the unique and exclusive context at the grounds of Goodwood House. During “Run Up the Hill”, Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the most powerful SUV of all times, will be able to unleash all its power.
Naturally, the Jeep® side of performance relates to the ability to deal easily with the most demanding off-road trails, a characteristic shared by all the SUVs in the most award-winning line-up of all time. What's more, one of the stars of the Run Up the Hill at Goodwood will be Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the fastest, most powerful Jeep® SUV ever. With a 6.2 litre V8 turbo engine delivering 710 HP and torque of 868 Nm, Trackhawk offers class-beating performances: 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 289 km/h and a braking distance from 100 to 0 km/h of just 37 metres, thanks to the new Brembo system. It is no coincidence that this model recently set the world speed record on ice, at 280 km/h on the surface of Lake Baikal, in Russia.
One of the themes on which Jeep® engineers constantly focus is how to improve the already legendary off-road capability teamed with everyday driving pleasure. One solution originates from the opportunity of exploiting new technologies to place the clean, quiet power of an electric motor at the service of off-road motoring. The new Jeep® Renegade Hybrid Plug-in SUV displayed on the stand exploits the high drive torque of the electric motor and the new electric all-wheel drive (eAWD) technology.
Jeep® also provides an area with obstacles and a 6-metre bridge for off-road test-driving of the members of the updated Trailhawk family, specifically designed for 4x4 driving: Renegade, Compass, Grand Cherokee and, of course, Wrangler.
The exclusive character of every Jeep® SUV is ideal for customisations that underline its technical features and emphasise its performance: visitors to the stand will be able to admire Compass Night Eagle and Wrangler 1941 designed by Mopar®. The former has the dark look typical of this special series, with exterior enhanced by Gloss Black finishes – front, grille, fog light surrounds, halogen headlight bezels, and 19" diamond-cut alloy wheels. The distinctive daylight opening (DLO) trim and specific badges are also black. Alongside it, the new Jeep® Wrangler 1941 designed by Mopar®, the 4x4 with a 100% street legal outfit and Hella Yella paintwork. Wrangler 1941 is equipped with Jeep® Performance Parts: 2" lift kit, snorkel (optional), performance rock rails, black door sill guards, black fuel flap and all-weather mats. The Mopar® configuration is completed by the “1941” bonnet sticker commemorating the birth of the Willys.
