If you’ve been waiting for your brand new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to show up, you might have to wait a little longer. FCA just hasn’t had much luck lately with some of their “halo cars” like the Trackhawk and the SRT Demon. You may remember last month, three brand new 2018 SRT Demons burned up on a car hauler in Michigan. Now, six brand new Trackhawks have been stolen from FCA’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant!
According to a recent report by Allpar, a rumour popped up online that at least ten Trackhawks had been stolen from the plant. The number then grew to twelve and then eventually fifteen. When Allpar did some digging and contacted a FCA representative, they were told that although there were indeed some Trackhawks stolen, the numbers were lowered than rumored.
“FCA US is working with the Detroit Police Department regarding the theft of six Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawks from the Jefferson North Assembly Plant on Nov. 17, 2017. One vehicle has been recovered. Additional security measures have been put in place at the plant to prevent any further incidents.”
With a U.S MSRP starting at $86,995, that’s over $520,000 dollars in Trackhawks gone into the night. That’s not even considering the options you can add onto them. A fully loaded Trackhawk tops out at just over $100,000 for a total of over $600,000 in stolen Jeeps. If you add on the three Demons that burned up last month with an average of $95,000 per Demon (if fully loaded); that’s over $880,000 US in products gone out the window for FCA in around a month span. Hopefully they have good insurance.
