Drag Race: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT vs. HEMI Hot Rod

Who doesn’t love a good drag race? Lucky for us, this particular race isn’t your typical match up.  This race is courtesy of Jeep’s United Kingdom arm. The automaker pitted its Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT (no, not the Trackhawk) against a Hemi-powered hot rod. Why, you ask? We’re thinking for no reason other than to show off the Grand Cherokee’s power. Behind the wheel of the Jeep is UK drag racing champion Stuart Doignie.

The Grand Cherokee is packing a 6.4-liter V8 with 468 horsepower. On the other side we have a 1956 Desoto Hemi V8 with about 304 horsepower. Although the Desoto seems lighter, it’s power is sent to the rear wheels, while the Jeep gets it to all four. We won’t spoil it for you, check it out below.
