Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Vs. Audi Quattro And TVR Griffith Is Jeep’s Idea Of A Drag Race

Jeep has celebrated the UK market launch of the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk by setting it loose against two iconic models: the Audi Quattro and TVR Griffith.

The quarter-mile drag race was completed by the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in 11.48 seconds, at 119 mph (191.5 km/h). The 220 PS (217 hp / 162 kW) Audi Quattro crossed the finish line in 18.48 seconds, and the 340 PS (335 hp / 250 kW) TVR Griffith in 13.81 seconds.

Said to have been inspired by Top Trumps, the drag race allowed the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to unleash its 710 PS (700 hp / 522 kW) and 868 Nm (640 lb-ft) of torque, produced by the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine. Naught to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) is completed in 3.7 seconds, while top speed for the FCA-owned brand’s super SUV is 180 mph (290 km/h).

Pricing for what Jeep calls “the fastest production petrol SUV ever built” starts from £89,995 ($114,743/€101,016) in Britain. The vehicle comes with an aggressive exterior design, quad exhaust tips, 20-inch titanium finish wheels, Brembo brakes and more.

Laguna leather seats with the embroidered ‘Trackhawk’ logo are standard inside, along with the premium metal package that enhances the cabin with new accents. Meanwhile, a leather stitched center console, armrest, instrument panel and doors, 825-watt Harman Kardon premium sound system and Berber floor mats are also standard.

    I would love me some Trackhawk!! The 425 hp engine in the SRT8 that I own makes for one super-peppy car. I can only imagine what 707 hp with AWD feels like. The only one I’ve seen was in a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep showroom. The sticker on the window said $125,000 CDN. Ouch.

      +1 I would love the trackhawk to be my next ride when I replace my current SRT but as you said man, the price tag.
