Jeep’s 707HP Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Flexes Its Muscles Against The McLaren 570S

We live in an era where a Jeep packs 707hp and McLaren offers more models than Alfa Romeo, so a drag race between an SUV and a supercar isn’t that crazy.

Jeep took the decision to use the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 found in the Hellcat models in its SUV. Thus, it give the world a Grand Cherokee with 707hp.

With the kind help of the permanent all-wheel drive system, the powerful V8 slingshots the Trackhawk into the horizon, achieving a 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) in a mere 3.5 seconds and dealing with the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds at 116mph (186 km/h).

Not even Lamborghini with thei Urus has managed to outplay Jeep. Therefore, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the most powerful SUV in the world right now.

The 570S, on the other hand, is the entry-level model in the British supercar maker’s range. Nevertheless, there’s nothing entry-level in the way it devours straight lines, beating even all-wheel drive rivals despite being rear-wheel drive only.

The Jeep remains one of the faster-accelerating five-seaters out there. However, the laws of physics apply to everyone, even to those with 707hp at their disposal. So, the question is whether the much more powerful Trackhawk can outrun the lithe McLaren. Hennessey’s latest video provides the answer.

    Pathetic. The Jeep needs at least another 707 hp. 😉

    Jk, its amazingly fast for such large vehicle. But its price is a bit too ambitious. I know it wouldn’t be my choice in that price-class.

  • Craig

    But they’re both going over 60 mph before the McLaren takes over. Right? I’ll take the Jeep thanks!! [And keep my driver’s licence!]

  • BuddyLuv

    The Jeep needs to some P90X to cut some of that fat before it beat that car, and needs to have less wind drag.

    • Matt

      Jeep could cut alot of weight to include alot more aluminum, carbon fiber, carbon reinforced plastics etc but the price would skyrocket.
      It does get me thinking, what if McLaren or another manufacture with alot of R&D already invested & built an suv from a full carbon fiber chassis?
