In a normal world, who bring a Jeep Grand Cherokee or a Cadillac sedan to the drag strip? Well, the world of horsepower is anything but normal. That is why the Wheels YouTube channel uploaded this unlikely comparison. We have had both the coupe and sedan version of the Cadillac ATS-V for a week of review, and the car is as brutal as its big brother CTS-V.

The white Cadillac looks unassuming except for the Weld Drag Star wheels out back. It certainly needs them because the 3.6 liter V6 makes 464 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque. Our local LS tuner Jeremy Formato got his wife’s car into the low 9-second range with basic mods and a tune. The opponent is a Jeep? Yes the gearheads at SRT somehow shoved the Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2 liter V8 into a Grand Cherokee, and they christened it the Trackhawk. It is All Wheel Drive with no less than 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. Tell us who you think should have won in the comments below and stay with us for more drag racing action.
