2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Take the supercharged 707 hp, 645 lb-ft Hellcat V8 engine that powers the Charger-Challenger SRT Hellcat siblings. Tuck it under the hood of a bulky Jeep Grand Cherokee. Do the tweaks and mods demanded by a heart transplant surgery of this nature. What you get is the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk – a full-blown 4X4 SUV which can teach sports cars a lesson or two at the track.

From a standstill, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will set off to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and will cover a quarter mile distance in 11.6. The juggernaut will put 180 mph on the dials if you bury your foot deep into the foot well. Sadly, Jeep hasn’t done much to visually differentiate the Trackhawk from the SRT8, other than a couple of badges, new air inlets and wheels. But who cares when it’s mind-blowingly fast?
