Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
I swear a lot in this one…

You can walk into a dealership and leave with the keys to a 707-horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee. It’s called the Trackhawk, and it’s the best, dumbest vehicle ever built.

Of course, you’ll need to drop around $90,000 to get one. Still, what we have here is a Hellcat Jeep packing all-wheel-drive and good cargo space.

Can you live with eight to nine miles per gallon fuel economy? Do you care that everyone in a three-block radius can hear your supercharger whine? Do you want to spend the money it will cost when you eventually need to change a set of 295 Pirelli tires?

HELL YES.

Love live the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk – the planet’s best dumb thing ever built.

[Disclaimer: Jeep tossed us the red key to the Trackhawk and included a tank of fuel. We became close friends with the local fueling station attendant… during the subsequent three trips during the course of a week.]

    Impressive vehicle and a fun video review.

    This is the type of vehicle I think would be more relevant to BORROW than to DAILY. Primarily because it would spoil you to the point that 98% of other cars become boring. For regular driving in a family-friendly vehicle, I think the Dodge Durango SRT more closely hits the sweet spot, though I feel even it is overpriced at $60k. If I had unlimited wealth, though, I’d find a spot for a Trackhawk in my acres of garage space. It makes complete sense if you ignore sensibility.

    Jeff, great review. I wanted to let you know even my wife was laughing at this one. She usually doesn’t like car stuff.
