Hennessey Performance Engineering of Sealy, Texas recently pitted its HPE800 Cadillac Escalade against a stock Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
Before you cry foul about this being an unfair match-up, note that the Jeep is a mid-size SUV whereas the Cadillac is a full-sizer.
The Jeep is also powered by the infamous Hellcat engine, a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 delivering 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. Mash on the pedal and you’ll be traveling at 60 mph after just 3.5 seconds and passing the quarter mile after just 11.6 seconds.
The Cadillac also features a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8, albeit one built to Hennessey’s HPE800 spec. The resulting output is an incredible 805 hp and 812 lb-ft. Hennessey
