Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Races Challenger Hellcat In Forza Motorsport 7

According to the people who deal in algorithms and virtual physics and developed the Forza Motorsport 7 game, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is no pushover when it comes to drag racing a Challenger Hellcat.

Also, thanks to the user who goes by the nickname Ericship111, we now have a pretty good idea regarding who would win in a virtual fight between the world’s most powerful SUV and the mighty Hellcat, at least in Forza’s world.

This straight line race takes place over a distance of one mile (1.6 km), which means that you not only need to get off the line quickly, but also have sufficient power to keep your opponent at bay at high speed.

Let’s run some numbers, shall we? For starters, both opponents pack the same 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine producing 707 HP and 645 lb-ft (874 Nm) of torque. Jeep says the Trackhawk will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds, which is very similar to what the Challenger Hellcat can do, and while the Dodge is lighter, the Jeep has all-wheel drive that may, or may not, help it in getting off the line faster.

Therefore, the result of this race is unpredictable, even in a video game. We obviously won’t tell you who won, but we will say that you’ll want to pay close attention to the finish line.

    How was that unpredictable? Obviously with the RWD, the Challenger is gonna catch up and beat it.

      It’s harder and time consuming to wait for a clear day, arrange for 2 cars to show up at a track, pay out track fees, position cameras at strategic locations on the track, pay out wages for the film crew and drivers, and edit the whole mess later to construct a narrative of events that happened.

      It’s cheaper to boot the Xbox and record the outcome, but the content and production quality is also cheaper because it’s crap.

    I don’t understand the appeal of this.
