Jeep Hellcat launch and Q&A: snow to SRT

by David Zatz on

How does the Trackhawk handle in snow? How did they fit in a transfer case capable of handling 707 hp? and how challenging was it, really, to add 222 horsepower to the most powerful Jeep ever made? Why aren’t there any SRT or Hellcat badges on the show cars?

We were able to ask these questions of the Jeep people; for the answers, turn to our permanent “Meet the Trackhawk” page, which also has a few minutes of video from the launch.
