However, one individual simply couldn’t wait for the forthcoming 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. What we have here is a WK-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee powered by the same 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 engine, and it trounces the upcoming Trackhawk. In comparison, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will arrive with the familiar 707 hp Hellcat engine and dispatch the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds. However, what True Street Performance calls the Grand Cherokee HellhaWK (for the WK-generation of SUV), is capable of is downright hellish. In total, True Street Performance massaged 790 horsepower and 739 pound-feet of torque from the entire setup.
according to The Wrangler has 74% domestic American-made parts in its construction for the 2-door version and 75% American-made parts for the 4-door version. This year the top vehicle on the annual American-Made Index was the Jeep Wrangler. That includes assembly location, domestic parts content, country of engine origin, country of transmission origin, and US factory employment. The vehicle sitting in the second place spot was the Jeep Cherokee. Each year the Cars.com website spends time looking at just how much of the domestic US made vehicles are actually made in the US.

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.
