    • Yes the 2018 Jeep Trackhawk is slow - Timeslips show 114.X mph trap speeds

      W T F? Magazine times are one thing and they can vary wildly. When Car and Driver published their test results showing the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk running 12.0 @ 115 in the 1/4 mile we figured much quicker and faster times would come from real world dragstrip tests.


      That is not the case.

      Look at these passes:


      The best run is an 11.89 @ 114.64. They were not even able to hit 115 miles per hour.

      Where is the 707 horsepower? A BMW F85 X5M with an ECU tune and downpipes will run 11.3 @ 123.17. That is closer to what a Hellcat powered Jeep should be doing considering in stock form the Hellcat motor makes ~660 to the wheels.

      Someone needs to throw one on a dyno and figure out what is going on here.

        Also, the Trackhawk is a serious letdown. I think people are getting better times out of modded 6.4Ls...

        They are running 11.1 @ 124 with 8 psi of boost. Nice.

        trackhawk timeslip looks like its falling on its face at the 1/8th mile mark (compared to the X5 referenced link timeslip).... probably heatsoaking with the shoe-horn job the engineers had to do to get the engine/tran/ transfer case all to fit.... seems like cooling mod should be the priority one development from the aftermarket at this moment
