Trackhawk VS Hellcat – Ultimate Battle for Dominance

You are probably wondering how will perform a same engine in a different body style and different weight. Well, here we have a perfect example. On one side, we have the most powerful SUV ever produced, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, on the other side we have the legendary 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

The difference between these two modern Mopars, is that the Trackhawk has all-wheel drive system, which means the power of the engine is transferred to all four wheels. In addition, it weighs 5,258 pounds, which is 810 pounds more than the Hellcat’s 4,448 pounds. The Hellcat is rear wheel drive only, but the positive thing it is a lot lighter and over 60 mph it gains speed a lot much quicker.

From a technical point of view, both the Trackhawk and the Hellcat are 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. In addition, both have the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Trackhawk is a beast when it comes to accelerate from zero to 60 mph, which takes only 3.5 seconds. The 1/4 mile time is 11.6 seconds at 116 mph and it has a top speed of 180 mph. While the Hellcat from 0-60 mph accelerates in 3.4 seconds and a 10.9-second 1/4 mile, and the top speed is 195mph. Enjoy the race!
