Client Feature: Jeep Trackhawk - Avery Satin Black Vinyl Wrap
If you want a perfect example of a car with ridiculous numbers, you don’t have to dig into the supercar archives as much as you think. In fact, the search for such a car would most likely stop once you came across the spec sheet for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
It weighs just shy of a football stadium - coming in at an astonishing 5,363 pounds. It has seating for 5, and it’s just as at home on a snow-covered street as it is tearing up the drag strip on Summer evenings with sub-12 second runs, provided by the massive 707-horsepower 6.2-Liter Supercharged V8 engine that lives underneath the hood. All of these are massive numbers indeed. But the only small number is the resulting 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds that all of this absurdity produces. Is it crazy? Definitely. It’s basically the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen’s Rowdy, American, Gun toting, Hell-raising cousin.
Bringing all of that rowdiness to a stop is another story - as the Trackhawk comes equipped with, what The Brake Report called in 2017, “...the biggest brake caliper in production on a North American Car…”. There’s something to be said about a car that one can put a week’s worth of groceries into, and, on the ride home, make a stop at the local drag strip for a few spirited runs. But, there’s even more to be said about the Trackhawk we had in our shop recently.
The Mission: transform the exterior of this Trackhawk by covering the gloss black finish with Avery Dennison Satin Black Vinyl.
This example of the Trackhawk was already menacing, and featured several tasteful mods, including:
Forgiato 22”x10.5” Staggered rims
Sniper carbon fiber hood
CAI widebody kit
Custom Airlift Air Suspension / Bags
The result of our crew’s hard work was an even more menacing looking muscle car than before. Now, not only does this Trackhawk look meaner, the vinyl will add protection to the painted surface underneath for the winter season ahead.
