Jeep UK Pins The Trackhawk Against Some Of The Popular Former Sport Car Greats:

Drag Race Helps Kick Off Limited Run Of Trackhawks For Europe...

Jeep UK has put its fastest gasoline-powered ever SUV, the supercharged Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, to the ultimate test in straight-line speed – a Top Trumps inspired drag race against two of the most iconic pin-up performance cars ever built in Europe.

Racing against a classic 1991 Audi Quattro and TVR Griffith, the 707 horsepower, Grand Cherokee went head-to-head against the iconic performance cars to celebrate a limited run of models going on sale, and to pay homage to the legendary poster cars of yesteryear.

With the combination of a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V8 engine, launch control and a torque reserve system, the Trackhawk boasts a blistering 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) time of 3.7 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 11.48 seconds, turning the traditional sense of a supercar on its head, and positioning Trackhawk as a true Supercar SUV.

Reaching a blazing 119 mph over the quarter-mile distance, the Trackhawk’s challengers finished with equally quick times, the Audi Quattro and TVR Griffith crossing the finish line in 18.48 seconds and 13.81 seconds respectively.
