Some high-quality photos featuring the all-new 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk have leaked online before its official reveal.
There are two Jeep Grand Cherokee variants that the world is looking forward to, the Trackhawk with a supposed Hellcat engine and the Trailhawk with a slighter more aggressive look than stock. This is the later. According to our good friends over at Jalopnik, it seems like they’ve gotten their paws on a set of high-quality photos featuring the Trailhawk.
From the looks of things, this Trailhawk will make parking lot stuntin’ all that more easier for Grand Cherokee owners. Oh, and we’re sure that it’ll have a couple of serious off-roading credentials as well. Check out a couple of the photos for yourself below and let us know what you think about this newest Cherokee in the comments below.

If you can remember back in 2013, FCA also dropped a Trailhawk edition on the Grand Cherokee. Added to the Laredo X trim was a special set of alloy wheels, tow hooks, beefier off-road tires and most importantly the option to swap in a 5.7L Hemi V8. Trailhawk also added such niceties as remote start, a hood decal and a “Trailhawk” emblem on the tailgate.
Upon closer inspection of this latest Trailhawk, it’s much the same from 2013. Around all four corners are a set of aggressive wheels wrapped around a meaty set of tires. The hood sets itself apart from other Jeep Grand Cherokees thanks to what looks like some black stick-on appliques. The front and rear emblem are black and embroidered in red and we assume it says Trailhawk down the side on both driver and passenger door.
Inside, a upgraded seating material and touchpoints benefit from red stitching. Other than that, there’s not much else that separates this from a Laredo X-Trim.
When we said stuntin’ we meant exactly that. Not stunting. Sure a good chunk of Trailhawk owners will take it off the beaten path once in a while but this Trailhawk will feel equally at home at a weekend soccer game for your kids as it will in Moab.
Jeep does plan to unveil this finished product at the 2016 NYIAS so look forward to more details pushed forward as the show is just around the corner.
