Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk met on the drag with the McLaren 570SJuly 2, 2018
It would seem, what doubts can there be in what car will cross the finish line first? After all, the McLaren 570S is a sports car, and it must be a priori faster than a fairly heavy SUV. However, the so-called “charged” version of Jeep Grand Cherokee participates in this race. Looking ahead we want to note that the American was able to surprise everyone.
In the Trackhawk version, the car is equipped with a 707-horsepower 8-cylinder Hellcat HEMI V8 engine with 6.2 liters, the torque ceiling of which is 874 Nm. In addition, the monster, SUV is equipped with a full drive – all this power is transferred to all 4 wheels at the same time.
However, no matter how strong the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, it has one serious problem for this race – the car is still the same heavy SUV.
Its weight is 2,432 kg, whereas the British McLaren 570S with a weight of 1,451 kg and a maximum power of 562 horsepower has a serious advantage. In addition, the American received a body with less successful aerodynamic qualities. In general, all the signs indicate the victory of the sports car 570S, but …
