Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

I’m headed to Portland, Maine, today to drive a Jeep with 647 more horsepower and an infinitely faster 0-60 time than my 1948 Willys CJ-2A. Jeeps have come a long way.

The promising thing about the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is that it finally takes all that power from the hallowed 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8, and sends it to four wheels (via a Quadra-Trac single-speed four-wheel drive system and a limited slip rear diff). This means that maybe, MAYBE those 295-section tires won’t light up with a slight touch of the gas pedal. We shall see.

It’s a giant $85,900, 180 MPH SUV that can run from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds, and also tow a 7,200 pound boat. Seems a bit absurd. What do you want to know about it?
