FCA is All About Power in New York

After months of teaser videos, Dodge unveiled the Challenger SRT Demon and Jeep debuted the Hellcat-powered Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.  The Demon is an impressive, record-breaking production car that takes the Hellcat to the next level.  Built for the strip and the street, it is customizable to fit the desires of the 3,000 buyers.  The things that aren’t customizable are the numbers; 840 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque help turn the earth from a 6.2L supercharged Hemi V8.  Zero to 30 comes in one second, 60 is reached in 2.3, and the quarter-mile is covered in just 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.  Did we mention it can pull the front wheels off the ground?  It can, for about three feet.  Watch the video below for all the good details.

In keeping with the crazy horsepower theme, the Jeep Grand Cherokee got the 707 hp Hellcat engine stuffed into it.  Producing 645 lb-ft of torque, the supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8 pushes the SUV to 60 in just 3.5 seconds and takes your friends and all their gear down the quarter-mile in a brisk 11.6 seconds.

Both vehicles are crazy in their own way, but we’re glad they exist.
