Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackhawkIn one lane we have a custom hot rod powered by a 5.4-liter V8 sourced from a 1956 DeSoto – one of the many brands that Chrysler has killed off over the years. It kicks out about 304 horsepower, but with only two seats and none of the creature comforts of today’s vehicles, it’s focused on one thing, and one thing only: straight-line performance. (Well, that and looking hot.)

Jeep is even keen on showing its credentials, which is why they pitted the huge crossover against a low rider. Since it’s an official thing, we’ll excuse the weirdness and we can all rest assured we know who the winner is.

The Jeep’s power advantage allowed it to out-muscle the hot rod in the quarter mile. Despite weighing substantially more, the Jeep managed a 13.3-second run at 103 mph, compared to 14.2 seconds at 95 mph for the hot rod. Now that’s progress.

The Trackhawk shares its 6.2-litre supercharged V8 with the Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat, which also forms the basis for the recently-revealed Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. It generates 527kW and 874Nm, making it capable of a 3.6-second 0-100km/h time and a 290km/h top speed.
