Evolution of the Trailhawk Model

This isn't the first appearance of a Trailhawk vehicle available in the Jeep brand. There was a concept vehicle with the "Trailhawk" name that made its first appearance at the 2012 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. This concept vehicle was created to be an SUV with a rugged appearance and that offered a good deal of off-road 4x4 capability.

In 2015 the name was used for a model of the Jeep Renegade. Now, the Trailhawk name is being used for the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and one of six models of that vehicle.
