Why Buy a 707-Horsepower SUV? The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

The hot-rodded 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has the same engine under its hood that you'll find in the Hellcat versions of the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger. But why would anybody looking for an over-powered sports car choose an SUV body style over a more aerodynamic sedan or coupe?


Not to disparage the Hellcat, but they are more about sound and fury than they are about being practical. The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk launches with far less fuss, Jalopnik reports. No dramatic tire squeal and smoke, just a smooth takeoff from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds—making it the fastest SUV to roll out of a factory.

It also seats five, with far more legroom than you'd expect in a vehicle with its specs, has a generous cargo area, and can tow up to 7,200 pounds. It serves just as well as a family utility vehicle as it does on the track.
