but the official Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk won’t come out until next year. Like this old Jeep Grand Cherokee, which, I think, is one of the first of its kind to make a quarter-mile pass with Hellcat power and all-wheel drive. Let’s just hope that the builders behind this “Hellhawk” Grand Cherokee and future similar projects take the time to upgrade their brakes, too.

Upgrades other than the engine swap include a Paramount Performance transmission, stronger axles, and a new differential. According to a Facebook post, this beast had an even better run doing 10.5 seconds at 132 mph. The transfer case is stock and clearly has no problem handling this much power—at least not yet. Jim indicated that the cost for a build like this would cost around $40-50,000. Not too bad for an SUV that can hustle the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds.
