Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk vs Stelvio QV: Advantage, Alfa Romeo!

By  | 

The latest Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk may boast the biggest power count in its class but this does not necessarily make it the fastest SUV in the market.

There is no doubt that the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk can offer a supercar’s acceleration but when it comes to overall performance, the Hellcat-powered SUV is still an unproven name in the market.

What’s strange about this is that Alfa Romeo is still pending to launch the Stelvio Quadrifoglio here in the US but this did not stop the vehicle from proving itself by participating in track time challenges.

The Stelvio QV is pretty much like the Grand Cherokee Tackhawk – in the sense that both vehicles based their performance on a sibling vehicle and they also belong in the Fiat-Chrysler group. The Grand Cherokee runs on a 707hp V8 that is sourced from the Dodge Hellcat whereas the Stelvio borrows the 2.9L twin-turbo V6 from the Giulia QV.

The latter may probably have 505hp to offer but this is apparently enough for the vehicle to claim the best lap time for an SUV on the Nurburgring.

We can’t use this as a precise way to say that the Stelvio is faster than the Grand Cherokee but we can respect the vehicle for showing its worth. It’s too bad the same can’t be said for the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
