0-62 mph in the Jeep Trackhawk now takes just three seconds.
With its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 producing 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is one of the most insanely powerful SUVs on the market right now. Yes, we live in a world where SUVs with more than 700 hp exist. But that hasn't stopped aftermarket tuners from taking it to the next level.
Hennessey Performance has already extracted over 1,000 horsepower from its V8 unit, and now Austrian tuner O.CT Tuning is offering a new take on the high-performance SUV. The aftermarket firm is offering two tuning packages for the Jeep Trackhawk, the most powerful of which boosts the output to 888 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque. That's 181 more hp and 55 more lb-ft than the standard Trackhawk. Aptly, O.CT Tuning calls its tuned Trackhawk the 'Hellhound.'
This massive power boost was achieved by simply reprogramming the ECU. As you would expect, adding 181 more ponies has had a profound effect on the SUV's performance. With 707 hp on tap, the standard Jeep Trackhawk will complete the 0-62 mph sprint in just 3.5 seconds and top out at 180 mph, but O.CT Tuning's modifications have reduced the sprint time down to three seconds, while the top speed increases to over 186 mph. That makes it only 0.1 seconds slower off the line than a Ferrari F8 Tributo or Lamborghini Aventador S.
If this is too much power for you to cope with, the tuner also offers a less powerful stage 1 tuning kit for the Jeep Trackhawk, which has "only" 819 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque. And if you can only afford a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, which packs a 475-hp 6.4-liter V8 engine, you aren't left out because O.CT can also boost the powertrain up to 564 hp and 542 lb-ft of torque by installing a supercharger kit. Pricing details for the tuning kits hasn't been revealed, but the donor Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk will set you back $87,150.
