It has finally arrived: The Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Debuting at the 2017 New York Auto Show, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is now the world’s most powerful SUV with 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. Those figures allow it to hit 60 mph from a standstill in 3.5 seconds while it rips down the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds and has a top speed of 180 mph. That also means it dethrones the Bentley Bentayga from a few of its accolades.

Along with the beefy powerplant, there’s larger 15.75-inch Brembo brakes up front and an eight-speed automatic transmission to handle all the power. A stronger rear axle, quad exhaust setup, functional cold air scoop, more robust front suspension and more make the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk one attractive package for high-performance SUV enthusiasts.

Unfortunately Jeep hasn’t announced pricing for the model just yet, but it should arrive dealers in the last quarter of 2017.
