Car and Driver is reporting that the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be the next recipient of a certain 707 horsepower power plant.

Ricci Cavallaro took a bone-stock 2015 Challenger Hellcat to Pittsburgh Raceway Park, swapped out the OEM rubber for Nitto NT05 tires measuring 305/45/r18, and made a 10.97 pass on his first run! Two subsequent runs were also in the 10s. Read more at Torque News. Videos of his first two runs after the jump!

Roadkill is now sponsored by Dodge. Hmmm. Watch their latest episode and tell us what you think. Video after the jump!

Burnout videos on Youtube. They’re fairly commonplace and are usually posted by ne’er-do-well kids or, as with the Hellcat, pretty much every media organization lucky enough to sit behind the wheel.
