Lately, these are the hottest topics among petrolhead enthusiasts. What is better, an electric or vehicle with an internal combustion engine? Well, this question has more with your personality, you are eco-friendly green person, or you are an old school pedal to the metal.
However, let’s meet the performances of these two contenders. First the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. This beast is powered by a Supercharged Chrysler’s 6.2 liter, 370 cubic-inch SRT HEMI Hellcat small-block V8 engine, rated at 707 horsepower and 650 lb. -ft. of torque.
The 2018 Tesla Model X P100D Ludicrous + has Dual Three-Phase, Four-Pole AC induction Electric Motors with all-wheel-drive system. The electric motors combine, produce 588 horsepower and massive 920 lb.-ft. of torque to the wheels.
As we can see from the video, the Trackhawk cannot stand against the Tesla X P100D. With their best 1/4 mile times of 11.28 seconds @ 118.37 mph for Tesla, and 11.90 seconds @ 113.22 mph for the Trackhawk, it is obvious that the Tesla is so much faster. That is because of the torque, produced from the electric motors.
