The Wait for Jeep Beach is Over! Will You be in Daytona this Weekend?

Jeep beach 2017

Jeep Beach is this weekend! Are y’all excited? We are. Jeep Beach is the biggest Jeep-only event in the Southeast U.S. It is lucky for us that it is only a four-hour drive from South Florida because it’s definitely not an event many die-hard Jeepers want to miss.

Jeep Beach is an annual five-day event and various Jeep clubs, vendors and event organizers host a variety of awesome events. Aside from the awesome obstacle course at the Daytona International Speedway, parties and talkin’ Jeeps, the event also includes the “World’s Largest Jeep Beach Cruise,” what could be better?

707-Horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is Not Just a Dream

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Jeep and SRT did it again — they have partnered up to make another record-breaking SUV, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.  The new Jeep is the most powerful and quickest SUV ever made. and no, you are not dreaming.

Jeep introduced the new model at the New York International Auto Show and it’s safe to say everyone in the room was impressed. The engine in the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, which is the same engine in the Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat models. The engine produces 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque.

So what does all of that power do? According to FCA, the Trackhawk goes from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, completes a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds, and it has a top speed of 180 mph. Wow!

The engine isn’t the only impressive and lovable performance feature of the Trackhawk. The SUV is equipped with Brembo brakes for serious stopping capabilities and it also has a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. Like the Grand Cherokee SRT,  which was the first performance Jeep SRT made, the new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has all-wheel-drive, which really makes it fly. Vroom vroom. [click to continue…]
