While most surveys will indicate that Colorado drivers tend to favor the likes of Subaru Outback, Toyota Camry, Chevy Silverado of Ford F-150 it’s hard to argue an inexplicable link between Jeep and the Colorado lifestyle.

Considering the tendency of Coloradans to make the most of the natural wonders that surround them, it makes sense that many would prefer a trail-rated vehicle with rugged versatility and off-road capability. Factor in the utilitarian demands of hauling gear and passengers, and it’s really a no-brainer. And while this might lead many drivers to find themselves behind the wheel of the iconic Wrangler, Jeep serves up a number of crossover offerings deserving of a second look.

Consider the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee – Colorado Springs, CO drivers have long enjoyed the Grand Cherokee for its ability to marry performance, versatility and a comfortably upscale cabin design. And never before has the Grand Cherokee felt so diverse, with nine primary trim configurations geared towards all kinds of drivers.

But of all the model year offerings, the highly-anticipated savagery of the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk garners most of the spotlight. Boasting a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, it channels an earth-shaking 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful SUV on the planet. And with a 3.5-second sprint to 60 mph, it’s also the fastest. Mating its gut-busting V8 with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, the Trackhawk ridges smooth upon its Bilstein adaptive damping suspension. Geared less towards off-roading and more towards highway badassery, it may not fit every Colorado lifestyle. Then again, with a price tag of over $80,000 MSRP, it may not fit every Colorado budget. Either way, it sure is fun to explore…

Chronicling the Trackhawk’s overall ‘bat-shit crazy’ character, the video also highlights the wealth of smart tech features that make it a confident choice for tackling all kinds of terrain, as well as daily highway driving. Pairing versatility with luxury-inspired styling, it’s easy to understand the excitement surrounding this unique offering and how it forever changes the way we look at the Jeep Grand Cherokee…
