According to our sources, Jeep’s Grand Cherokee SRT will adopt the new name Grand Cherokee Trackhawk starting from the 2017 model year. Two engines will be on offer, one of which will be the 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 we all know as the Hellcat.

Also due for the 2017 model year is an updated version of Buick’s Encore subcompact crossover. We’ve just spotted a prototype of the updated version.

Another 2017 model making headlines today is the Infiniti Q30. The Japanese luxury brand has confirmed the compact hatchback for a debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. Pictured above is the Q30 concept shown at 2013's Frankfurt Auto Show. The concept is said to be about 90 percent representative of the final design.
