The Hennessey Jeep Trackhawk HPE1000 has More Power than a Bugatti Veyron!
Published on Sep 25, 2018
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is already verging on being silly, but with the full HPE1000 package from Hennessey Performance you're now looking at an SUV with over 1,000 horsepower! What could be better then, than to drive it flat out on a runway to experience what it's capable of.
The HPE1000 brings the figures up to 1,026hp (1,012bhp) and 1,314nm (969lb-ft) from the stock Jeep Trackhawk that has 717hp (707bhp) and 875nm (645lb-ft). This is through the use of a 4.5l supercharger at 14psi of boost bolted to the 6.2l V8 that's found in the Dodge Hellcat (both Charger and Challenger). Thanks to an all wheel drive system that means it can run 0-60mph in just 2.7 seconds (3.5 seconds stock) and complete a quarter-mile in a mere 10.7 seconds... in an SUV! The numbers are boggling, as is the sheer level of entertainment driving it.
When you think about it, this is a family car with more power than a Bugatti Veyron and faster down a drag strip than many supercars - it doesn't add up! A thanks to Hennessey for the opportunity to visit, take a drive, and see their location in Texas.
Thanks for watching, Tim
