Here's How To Do A Burnout In A Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Video

A very simple modification is all it takes.

Thanks to its 707-horsepower supercharged V8 and all-wheel-drive grip, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is one of the quickest SUVs on the planet. In fact, the heavier Jeep is quicker than its Dodge siblings, the Challenger and Charger Hellcat. 0-60 mph takes just 3.5 seconds in the Trackhawk and a Hennessey-tuned model can make the sprint in just 2.7 seconds. Since the Challenger and Charger Hellcat are only available with rear-wheel-drive, they cannot match the launch time of the Trackhawk.

Unfortunately, a quick launch is not the only tell-tale sign of a good muscle car. Some owners prefer to do burnouts in their RWD cars, which isn't really possible in the Trackawk - or at least, that's what we thought.

As it turns out, converting the Trackhawk to RWD is as simple as pulling a fuse. This isn't exactly a new concept, as we can remember R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R owners talking about how easy it was to make their car RWD simply by pulling out the AWD fuse.

In order to show how easy this process is, YouTuber Mod2Fame Vlog decided to pull the AWD fuse in his friend's Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. What happens next, as we are sure you can predict, it a big, smokey burnout. With 707 hp now being directed to the rear wheels only, the Trackhawk becomes a burnout machine.

If you don't want to watch the whole video, the process begins at around 2:35. Pulling the fuse does bring up a warning light on the dashboard, so we recommend exercising caution if owners want to try this at home. Once the fuse is out, the Trackhawk just requires a simple brake stand in order to perform a perfect burnout.

BMW offers a far more sophisticated version of AWD which can disconnect the front wheels at the press of a button. Judging by how well the Trackhawk can do a burnout, we think FCA should offer a "burnout mode" so you won't have to drive around with a warning light.
