Whisper Quiet, but Throaty Too
To reduce noise during idling and steady highway cruising, Jeep’s engineers added a Helmholtz resonator right into the Trackhawk’s induction system and optimized cam timing. Since the Grand Cherokee is a luxury vehicle, it’s more in-line with a top of the line, family-friendly luxury SUV, then say it’s louder Hellcat counterpart, the Challenger. Stomp on the Trackhawk’s gas pedal though, and you won’t be disappointed. You’ll be met with the unmistakable throaty whine of the supercharger that you hoped for.
