The FCA statement on the incident, meanwhile, was brief:

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.

FCA did not respond to questions about the exact circumstances of the thefts.

Six Grand Cherokee Trackhawks is about half-a-million dollars worth of SUVs at a minimum, with five of them are still out there. The Trackhawk, as you probably know, has a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 under its hood, and is capable of going from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. It’s also, at a base MSRP of $85,900, the most expensive vehicle Jeep sells by some distance.

2019 Jeep Cherokee finally reveals its all-new nose .
It's a far more conservative look.The current model has a split lighting setup that places the main headlights down low, almost below the grille. The turn signals/parking lights are way up high, nearly on top of the fender. This new model has those two meet in the middle. The shape is generally what you would find on both the new Compass and Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's handsome, even if it does lose a bit of character.
