What happens when an aerodynamic supercar lines up against a Jeep Grand Cherokee? These notions normally keep us awake at night, so thankfully Hennessey Performance Engineering has the answer. In order to show the potency of their 1,000 horsepower Jeep Trackhawk, they chose Mr. Hennessey’s Ford GT as a worthy opponent. The 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 makes 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. The left lane is filled by an imposing Jeep, with the heart of a Hellcat under the hood.
Hennessey knows how to make big power from the supercharged 6.2-liter, but the weight and aerodynamics offer diminishing returns at triple-digit speeds. On the dyno, it makes 1,012 horsepower and 969 lb-ft of torque. The supercharger measures in at 4.5 liters and it is set at 14 lbs. Limiting boost to 1 Bar saves on drivetrain life since the Jeep retains its AWD system.
