Audi SQ7 v Old Jeep Grand Cherokee: Who Wins Tug Of War?

When it comes to towing another vehicle who’s actually resisting the pull, there are several factors to consider.

For example, weight, torque and grip all matter, and as you can see, it’s the Jeep who’s got the beefy tires, something that might come in handy on that wet asphalt.

Then again, the Audi SQ7 should have a clear power advantage, with its 4.0-liter V8 diesel unit putting down 435 PS, but more importantly, a whooping 900 (663 lb-ft) of torque. It’s enough to get it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds.

Here, all it has to do is pull harder than the power unit underneath that old Grand Cherokee’s bonnet, which by the way, remains an unknown factor. All we know is that it’s rocking some rough-terrain tires that may or may not swing this battle one way.

In other words, we don’t want to spoil the surprise for you, because the winner of this rather silly stunt pulled off the victory in style. Just watch.

    Its all about traction and not power. Once the Jeep loses traction its over. The Audi would have lost had the Jeep owner taken advantage of their spinning tires.

    • Vasilescu Petru-Ionut

      Tires make all the difference ! Jeep had mud tires so it had a lot less contact on the road than the Audi with road tires and of course a lot less grip.

      • Bonzomatic

        And the Jeep’s tires are a much harder compound so if the Audi has all season tires, it’s going to win easily.

      You know Jeep is owned by european Fiat right? … No way any american scrap metal built by fat men in Kentuky can compete with German engineers who have been perfecting auto technology for decades. If Chrysler had any substance they wouldn’t go bankrupt and then get bought by a European company

        Chrysler didn’t get “bought” by any Euro nothing. How can an Italian car company whose credit rating was downgraded to junk in 2009 buy anything? They didn’t. They latched onto their last hope that involved the USA bailing their sorry European asses out. The American tax payers bailed out Chrysler and in the process, Fiat as well. Get the hell over yourself. America is capable of being more than just bashing material for Eurotrash.

        German engineers who have been perfecting auto technology for decades? Do you really buy into the “German engineering” garbate? MB, BMW, and VW aren’t exactly known for quality. The only reason MB improved a while back was the Chrysler influence. I know plenty of people that love BMW and VW, while under warranty. They sell them immediately after.

        • Eunos

          Are you f***ing serious? Mercedes improved quality because of Chrysler’s help??? You must be out of your mind!

      Toad, read the earlier comments. It’s about traction. The Jeep could have easily won if he took advantage of the Audi when it was spinning. Videos like these are meaningless.
