Jeep's 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is ready to get down and dirty (pictures)
You might recognize this Grand Cherokee's name from other Jeep products, including Cherokee and Renegade.
Trailhawk is an off-road trim that brings both aesthetics and functionality to the table.
In fact, the first use of Trailhawk was on a Grand Cherokee concept back in 2012.
Trailhawk is the sixth Grand Cherokee model, following Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit and SRT.
Off-road capability abounds.
Standard equipment includes Jeep's Quadra-Drive II 4x4 system with an electronic limited slip differential.
The car also comes with off-road-specific air suspension and skid plates.
The matte hood decal does more than look aggressive -- it helps cut down on glare in the cabin.
If you remove the lower front fascia, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk boasts a 36.1-degree approach angle (29.8 degrees with all parts still attached).
Do you like getting high? You'll love the Trailhawk's 10.8-inch max ground clearance.
Naturally, the car's red tow hooks came over from other Trailhawk models.
Eighteen-inch off-road tires are standard, with the option to move up to 20-inch sets.
As you might expect, there are plenty of Trail Rated badges littered around the exterior.
If you're really hitting the dirt hard, you can spring for a set of optional Mopar rock rails.
It's a beastly looking vehicle, no bones about it.
Available colors include red, silver, white, gray and black.
Inside, the Trailhawk boasts a special black interior featuring seats wrapped in both leather and suede.
Red accent stitching covers the seats, doors and console.
The standard infotainment offering is Jeep's excellent 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen system.
The infotainment contains unique off-road features, displaying ride height, driving modes and wheel articulation.
