Super-SUVs: Lambo’s $218k Urus Vs. Jeep’s $88k Grand Cherokee Trackhawk And Dodge’s $81k Durango Hellcat


Automotive YouTube channel Throttle House is back at it again with quite possibly the most combined output of any drag race they’ve run yet. They’ve decided to pit the Lamborghini Urus that starts from $218,000 against two of America’s fastest SUVs, the $88,365 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, and $80,995 Dodge Durango Hellcat in a series of drag and roll races to see which is the true king.

All three have 8 cylinders and all-wheel drive; where they differ is in their specs. The Lamborghini has a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 producing 641 hp (650 PS / 478 kW) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque, the Jeep has a supercharged 6.2L V8 making 707 hp (717 PS / 527 kW) and 645 lb-ft (875 Nm) of torque, and the Dodge also has a supercharged 6.2L V8, this one churning out 710 hp (720 PS / 530 kW) and 645 lb-ft (875 Nm) of torque.

It’s worth noting that while the Durango is the leader in power, it is also the heaviest, and vice versa for the Urus.

The first race sees the trio racing from a dig, not only putting their power to the test, but also their clever launch control systems. The Hellcat immediately gets the jump off the line, followed by the Trackhawk and the Urus. That result stayed the same all the way to the finish line, just with the gaps between each car closing in a bit more.

They then figured that launch control might have been providing an unfair advantage, so they ran the race again without it. Nevertheless, the same finishing result ensued. Lastly, to try and level the playing field a bit more, they also conducted a roll race. This one saw the SUVs flooring it from a rolling start, and had the exact opposite finishing result: Lamborghini in first, followed by the Trackhawk and the Durango.

In the end, the Durango surprisingly managed to win two out of the three competitions, despite being the heaviest of the bunch. Additionally, it’s the cheapest of all of them as well as the only one with three rows, so we’d say that it more than makes up for a just a car length’s loss in only one race.
