The new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is insane. It’s the most powerful SUV on the market. That’s because Chrysler took the supercharged V8 from the Hellcat and slipped it into the mid-size SUV, giving the people mover 707 horsepower to tool around with.

Doug DeMuro took 25 minutes to walk his viewers through everything they could possibly want to know about the Trackhawk. From the 3 second 0-60 speed to the fact that Chrysler never got around to actually putting a speed limiter in the car, making it perfect for cutting loose on the weekend without having to worry over space when you pick the dog up to go to the park.

DeMuro even hits on the important distinctions between the Trackhawk and the Trailhawk. After all, you don’t want to start spouting off info about the wrong Jeep when you see one of these monsters at the gas station.

The Jeep has some drawbacks, namely it’s terrible fuel economy, but fuel efficiency isn’t why someone will choose to buy this SUV. After all is said and done, the Trackhawk earned a 69 out of 100 from DeMuro. Now the questions remains, is it worth $98,000.
