This is a 2018 jeep grand cherokee track . hawk and it is the single most powerful . suv ever manufactured let me put that in . context i recently made a video with the . mercedes g 65 amg and that thing has a . v12 in fact a twin-turbocharged v-12 . this has more power and not just a . little more power this mid-sized suv . built in detroit has 90 more horsepower . than a twin-turbocharged v-12 mercedes . today i'm going to show you around it . first a little background the numbers . the jeep grand cherokee track hawk has a . supercharged v8 with 707 horsepower in. 645 pound-feet of torque and a jeep . grand cherokee it starts around eighty . seven eighty eight thousand dollars . it'll do 0 to 60 in 3. 4 seconds it'll do . the quarter mile in 11. 6 seconds and . it'll top out at a hundred and eighty . miles an hour in a jeep grand cherokee . which begs the question how did this . happen there have been high-performance . grand cherokee models for years starting . with the 5. 9 limited in 1998 then in . 2005 there was the original grand . cherokee srt8 which had 420 horsepower . which seemed like a crazy amount at the . time the current grand cherokee srt has . 470 horsepower which really is crazy . it'll do 0 to 60 and 4. 4 seconds this is . for people who think that is a little . mundane but of course it isn't quite . that simple chrysler developed this 700 . horsepower engine for the challenger . hellcat and then they figured why limit . it to the challenger so they stuck it in . the charger and then they figured why . limit it to cars and so now i'm standing . next to a 700 horsepower jeep grand . cherokee which by the way i've borrowed. from a viewer near annapolis maryland . who has his own youtube channel called . dhr street speed you can check it out if . you click the link in the description . below and you should check it out . because in addition to this he also has . a viper acr a . a demon coming and a camaro zl1 coming . and a corvette zr1 coming so today i'm . gonna show you around the grand cherokee . track hawk and i'm gonna show you all of . its cool features and its interesting . quirks and then i'm gonna get it out on . the road and see what it's like to drive . a midsize suv with 411 more horsepower . than a toyota highlander with 437 more . horsepower than a honda pilot and then . of course i'm going to give it a dug . score and four more of my thoughts on . the track hawk experience click the link . below to visit autotrader. com slash . oversteer. i'm gonna start by climbing inside the . track hawk well you'll notice a few . changes over the standard grand cherokee . and even the srt to let you know you're . in something special for example the . steering wheel says track hawk on the . bottom the floor mats say track hawk on . them the sill plate says supercharge you . don't get that in a regular jeep these . seats say track hawk on them which was a . nice little touch and of course they're . more thickly bolster and of course . there's also a nice smattering of carbon. fiber and one of the other things you'll . notice when you climb in this car is . that it's just a pretty nice place to be . the interior is pretty well put together . carbon fiber aluminum leather stitching. then again this car better be pretty . well equipped inside because well you . know i told you these things cost around . eighty eight thousand dollars well . that's the base price take a look at the . window sticker of this one this one is . just a hair under a hundred thousand . dollars for a jeep grand cherokee so . it's nice that this interior is pretty . well equipped and pretty nicely . appointed with nice leather and . materials everywhere if you're gonna be . spending a hundred grand on an suv . another way you can tell the track apart . on the inside that would be the 200 mile . an hour speedometer you don't get one of . those if you buy a grand cherokee . limited to haul your kids to soccer . practice the next interesting interior . detail you will notice the gear lever in. this vehicle now if you've been in any . grand cherokee from this generation all . the way since 2011 you'll notice it . looks a little different that's because . the old gear lever well there were some . issues i'll allow you to google that and . find out for yourself the new gear lever . is just a regular old gear lever it . works like a normal gear lever you move. it down put it in drive put it in park . next up even though this thing has 700 . horsepower it still retains all the . practicality you'd expect from the grand . cherokee for example there are power . outlets basically everywhere there are. two usb outlets under this little cover . in the center console there's also a. cigarette lighter outlet there you want . a different cigarette lighter outlet. there's one in the center console if you. can't find it jeep has included a . helpful little guide so that you can . figure out where it is in the back there . are two more usbs and then there's even . a household style regular power ella you . could plug in your microwave or your . toaster and drive . around your grand cherokee use those . things there's not a lot of 700 . horsepower cars with a household power . outlet for your toaster another . interesting item in the center console . you see that little dimple in there well . that's actually a light so when you're . rooting around in your center console . you can see what you're looking for . leighton center consoles are not common . that's a little bit odd feature but i. like it another interesting thing in . this car that you won't find in a . standard grand cherokee is the launch. control button now launch control itself . is interesting i'll get to that in just . a second but the button is especially . cool take a look at it it looks like the . old-time drag strip christmas tree they . used to call it with the lights it's . really really cool looking it even says . launch going downwards like the lights . going from red to green on a drag strip . now speaking of launch control this car. has launch control like so many other. modern performance cars and like all. those cars it works about the same it . lets you rev it up automatically and . then it lets you floor it so you can get . going at a higher rpm than just flooring . it from a stop the interesting thing. about the launch control in this car . i can't demonstrate it for you because . jeep has disabled the launch control at . all the track hawks for the first 500 . miles this car is still on mile 200 or . so so we can't use it yet once you hit . 500 miles it becomes enabled and you can . start doing all the crazy launches you . want in your grand cherokee next up next . to the launch control button you will . find a little dial that lets you choose . between your drive modes their sport and . track for performance auto for the let . the car decide and then there's snow and . tow mode for when you want to use your . grand cherokee trailhawk to tow or when . you want to use it in the snow which. some people probably will now the thing . i like most about the little dial in the . center is that when you change from mode . to mode the gauge cluster changes and . shows the grand cherokee in various. different settings take a look at track . mode it's on the move and then there's. sport mode auto snow and tow now next to . the dial for the drive modes there's a . little button that says custom that's . because this car allows you to create . your own custom drive mode if for . example you want soft suspension because. you're just commuting but you want the . engine in the accelerator to be in track . mode in case you have to floor it you . can create a custom drive mode that. tailors to those specifications but back . to the gauge cluster there are a few . things i can . like in the gauge cluster now on the . left and right you have the normal gauge . cluster items the speedometer on the . left of vehicle information on the right . the middle one however is a screen and . it's configurable the thing i like about . the screen is that it gives cool little . icons for various different vehicle . functions and information for example . the screen that gives the most vehicle . information isn't just a picture of a . car instead it's the front end from this . car it's a little jeep logo which is . kind of cool . meanwhile you can find all the little . performance stuff if you go to the. little icon that's a hawk that would be . of course the track hawk and then . finally if you want to see the car's . diagnostic codes of it as a check engine . light on you go to a little doctor . stethoscope like you're checking up on. your grand cherokee which is kind of . cool. now that screen in the gauge cluster . shows a bunch of really cool performance . features and functions but you can also . access them in the infotainment screen . in the middle and so with that in mind . let's move on to the infotainment screen . now before i get into the performance . features i want to cover a couple of . other interesting items in the . infotainment system including one of my . favorites this car has a feature that . lets you drag icons that you use . frequently down to the main menu bar . that is always in place this is . brilliant i always complain that cars . don't have a heated seat thing and you . got to go into the menu whatever in this . car if you want the heated seat button . on the main screen just drag it there . and then it's always visible if you want . something else just drag it there in its . place you want something different just . drag it it's a great idea borrowed from . cellphones i don't know why no one else . has done this but this is brilliant and . you connect engineers good going a . couple of other interesting things in . the infotainment system before i move on . to the performance stuff number one is . the owner's manual this car comes with a . regular paper owner's ma
