Hennessey Performance studio from Texas has managed to turn the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk into the most powerful all-terrain vehicle in the world. And this is the first time in their track record when they increased the power of SUV up to 1000 horses. Cherokee Trackhawk did not require the additional pumping because the car is already the product of factory tuning. The new SUV has got a known HPE1000 package.

Hennessey Performance engineers offered new compressor, sports air filters, fuel pump, injectors, modified intake and exhaust systems for the 6.2-liter V8 power unit. As a result, the motor is able to generate 1027-hp instead of previous 717-hp and 1313 Nm of torque instead of 875 Nm. Technically Grand Cherokee Trackhawk HPE1000 accelerates to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, while the basic Trackhawk takes 3.5 seconds. To overcome a quarter mile distance the car needs 10.5 seconds that is 1.1 seconds faster comparing with the figure of the SUV without a tuning package.

The tuners kept in a secret the top speed and transmission’s modifications that definitely required reconfiguration. The cost of the package is also unknown.
