Meet the Hellhawk, a 707-horsepower animal of a Grand Cherokee. Not to be confused with the recently unveiled Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The Hellhawk hit the track at Maple Grove Raceway in Pennsylvania to take a swing at the quarter mile. The SRT8 is quick on its own, but throw in a Hellcat engine and it’s a whole different story.
This video shows the Hellhawk tearing up the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds at 128 mph, to be exact. See for yourself:

We’ve known for a couple years that Ford has been working on a Mustang hybrid. Early last year, a new patent gave us an idea of exactly what kind of power the hybrid could be packing. AutoGuide first discovered the patent image and reported last January, but Ford officially filed for it back in July 2017. It was published to the U.S Patent and Trademark Office site this week. From the the image, we can see that the Ford Mustang hybrid will keep the eight cylinders and add electric motors for increased power and torque.
The patent does not claim that it is specifically for a Mustang hybrid. Instead it describes a “twin-motor drive system” for a hybrid vehicle. The good people over at Motor Authority reached out to Ford for a comment and a spokesman said, “We submit patents on new inventions as a normal course of business but they aren’t necessarily an indication of new business or product plans.”
The Mustang hybrid is due sometime this year. Stay tuned for more details.
