Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk taking on a McLaren 570S? It’s an unlikely match-up, isn’t it? But this YouTube clip filmed in the United States shows the hefty SUV line up alongside the British supercar for a quick quarter-mile drag…

While the 570S coupé makes 419 kW and 600 N.m from its twin-turbocharged 3,8-litre V8 for a claimed 0-100 km/h time of just 3,2 seconds, the Trackhawk employs a 6,2-litre V8 delivering a whopping 527 kW and 874 N.m to all four wheels.

The SUV, which is expected to launch in South Africa in the near future, thus hits 100 km/h from standstill in a claimed 3,6 seconds, before topping out at 290 km/h.

When you watch the video above, take note that the McLaren driver jumped the start, so pay close attention to the times flashed up at the end of the strip to see which vehicle technically won the race…
