It’s as the title suggested, someone couldn’t wait for Jeep to open up the ordering books for their latest 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, and so the individual took matter into their own hands and created this monstrosity.
Using a WK-generation Grand Cherokee as the base, the aftermarket Jeep aptly named Hellhawk is powered by the same 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 engine used in the Trakhawk, just with more power.
The standard Trackhawk will deliver an already impressive 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. In this version tuned by True Street Performance the same engine can crank out a staggering 790 hp and 739 lb-ft of torque, of course with the aid of an upgraded transmission and axles along with four-wheel drive.
At the track, the Grand Cherokee HellhaWK can eat up a quarter mile in just 10.854 seconds at 128.89 mph, a tad faster than the Trackhawk with a quarter-mile time of 11.6 seconds. But we can’t really compare an aftermarket vehicle to a factory spec model, though it does provide an alternative to those who can’t wait for Jeep’s performance Grand Cherokee to appear on showroom floors.
No pricing was disclosed in the Twitter post linked by MotorAuthority, meaning it could either be a one off or the company assumes money won’t be a problem for anyone interested.
