Jeep­ers, but this thing flies!

The Grand Chero­kee Trackhawk is the most pow­er­ful Chero­kee Jeep has ever built. Its su­per­charged 6.2-litre V8 engine de­vel­ops a whop­ping 520 kW of power and 875 Nm of torque, mated to an 8-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. Its per­for­mance fig­ures are equally im­pres­sive: 0–96km/h in 3.5 sec­onds, the quar­ter mile in 11.6 sec­onds at 186km/h, and a top speed of 288km/h. Due to mas­sive Brembo brake calipers (400mm di­am­e­ter discs front, 350mm at rear), it brakes from 96–0km/h in just 35 me­tres. Its tyres are Pirelli 295/45ZR20 Scor­pion Verde All-Sea­son or new Pirelli P Zero three-sea­son tyres with an in­creased speed rat­ing. The Trackhawk is equipped with Jeep’s Quadra-Trac on-de­mand four-wheel-drive sys­tem, which in­cludes an elec­tronic lim­ited-slip rear dif­fer­en­tial and a sin­gle-speed ac­tive trans­fer case. The Selec-Track sys­tem on the Grand Chero­kee Trackhawk uses per­for­mance-tuned soft­ware to pre­con­fig­ure and dis­tin­guish the five dy­namic modes: Auto, Sport, Track, Snow, and Tow, en­abling driv­ers to choose a ve­hi­cle set­ting that ideally meets their re­quire­ments and am­bi­ent con­di­tions.
