Jeep Trackhawk Vs. Challenger Hellcat Drag Race Could Go Either Way

It’s hard to believe that some four years have passed since we first saw the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat along with its four-door sibling, the Charger.

Powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that pushes out 707 horsepower, it is a supercar killer for just a fraction of the price.

However, as it turns out, laying down all of that power is kind of tricky and requires lots of practice. The Hellcat though is one hell (pun intended) of a powerhouse in a straight line, so it’s only natural that more than a few owners like to engage in a good ol’ drag race every once in a while.

One of them brought together the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Both share the same engine with the exact same output. In the case of the muscle car, the rear wheels have to struggle for traction, whereas the SUV enjoys an all-wheel drive system that help put all that power down more efficiently.

Of course, other factors should be considered when placing two different vehicles against each other on the drag strip. One of them would be the power-to-weight ratio, which sees the balance tilt in favor of the Challenger. And then, of course, there’s the man sitting at the driver’s seat.

Now, we won’t spoil the following video by telling you which one’s faster, but we’ll remind you that the Grand Cherokee previously beat the Challenger in a drag race.

So, ladies and gentlemen, this would be a good time to place your bets. Before you do, however, here’s another useful snippet of information you might find usefule: the Challenger is shod with massive drag radials. Well, we couldn’t really predict how it’d turn out – can you?
