Jeep Trackhawk Caught Doing Donuts, Can’t Stop Whining About It

Supercharged cars make this very specific noise that some people really enjoy hearing. It’s sort of a prelude to what’s to come, which is epic acceleration, especially when it comes to SRT-badged products.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is no different. Like its cousins, the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat, the Jeep is also powered by a large 6.2-liter V8 unit, putting down 707 HP (716 PS) and 645 lb-ft (874 Nm) of torque.

Point it on the open road and you’ll soon be doing 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds, on your way to a maximum speed of 180 mph (289 km/h). It can already beat many supercars over a 1/4 mile, covering the distance in 11.6 seconds at 116 mph (187 km/h).

What it can also do is sound more brutal than just about any other family hauler in the world, except for maybe something like an AMG-powered Mercedes SUV, which are also very loud.

This video, courtesy of Outchea Racing, shows the Trackhawk going around in circles in a field, during rain conditions. While it’s not exactly a demonstration of how quickly it can cover ground in the wet, the constant supercharger whine is definitely indicative of what it can do when unleashed over a more grippy surface.

Also, even though some could consider these types of displays as being silly and unnecessary (understandably so), the speed and the tight angle at which this Trackhawk is spinning are direct results of how much power it’s putting down.
