TrackHawks?

Street focused Jeeps, like Trailhawk just for pavement?

Quote:
Steven St. Laurent observed that Chrysler has trademarked the term “Trackhawk,” which seems to be linked with the “Trail Rated” Trailhawk models. A Jeep retuned for high performance on roads and tracks could perhaps more sensibly be called a Trackhawk than an SRT, with Dodge having three SRTs now (and due to get two more), and Chrysler and Jeep having just one each.

As cool as Trackhawk sounds, SRT is just as nice...if not, better. I'd hate to see them replace SRT with Trackhawk.

They aren't replacing SRT with Trackhawk, they are moving SRT to only be a Dodge brand thing, and making Trackhawk the equivalent for Jeep. So for Jeep its a replacement, but in the larger picture SRT still exists.

More fuel for the Renegade Trackhawk:
Jeep CEO Mike Manley has revealed the company could offer SRT variants of the Cherokee and Renegade.

I know that, it's just that I rather see SRT remain on a Jeep and not trackhawk.

I personally don't care what the name is, I would love to see a Renegade on a lower/stiffer/more street/track oriented suspension with a turbo 2.4 (twin turbo seems silly and I can guarantee the aftermarket's solution would be a single turbo kit...twin scroll on the other hand...), bucket seats, etc.

Freaking rally rocket!

I agree, don't care what they end up calling it, just want to see this thing finally come to market and looking how it does in the rendering above.
