Put a Hellcat Engine into a Jeep SUV, and You Get a Truly Amazing Supercar

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an upscale, midsize SUV with something for everyone. It can go off-road, haul cargo, tow trailers, and delight passengers with its comfortable appointments and technology.

What if we made it go 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds?

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a 707-horsepower V8 engine—the same found in the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat—and is being hailed as the fastest SUV ever. It has a top speed of 180 mph, and sprints a quarter mile in 11.6 seconds. By any measure, this is a sports car worthy of a speed-obsessed enthusiast.

It can tackle a racing circuit with the best of them, and it does what smaller sports cars can't. It tows up to 7,200 pounds, and seats five—so it can drive home from the track, and take the family out for a weekend boating getaway at the lake.
