The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is yet another weapon in FCA’s performance arsenal and it features a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 707-hp. With “Hellcat” power and All Wheel Drive, the Trackhawk is capable of a 3.5 second 0-60 mph sprint and can run the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds.
The SUV was out on the Hennessey test track and alongside it was the familiar 2020 Corvette that Hennessey has put up against a number of challengers that include a Dodge Charger Hellcat, a Lamborghini Huracan and even a C7 Corvette Stingray.
This latest matchup is pretty interesting as the stock Trackhawk has 212 hp and AWD on its side, but the C8 Corvette is the dig king with the Z51’s aggressive gearing and 60% of its weight sitting on its back wheels. The Hennessey Stingray also has the added benefit of a custom stainless steel exhaust system. Hennessey is planning to upgrade the Trackhawk to their HPE1000 package so these runs help to serve as a baseline test against a worthy competitor.

This Jeep Trackhawk was undergoing baseline testing in preparation for its HPE1000 upgrade, and we couldn’t resist putting it next to our shop C8 Corvette for a comparison! Should we do a rematch when the Jeep has more power?
