How does the Trackhawk maintain such power under the hood?

The full-time 4WD 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 707-hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. The TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission ensures well-connected shifting between gears and works in partnership with and SRT-tuned electric rack and pinion steering. Towing capacity weighs in at an excellent 7,200 pounds of pulling power! There is a Quadra-Trac 4WD system inside the Trackhawk for superior traction. The Trackhawk model's Selec-Track system has 5 drive modes: Track, Auto, Sport, Snow, & Tow. This system additionally possesses a Custom functionality, which enables smooth matching up of the various systems within the Trackhawk. A Bilstein adaptive dampening suspension assists noticeably well to make a smooth riding Trackhawk, whether it is full to the gills or not. The Jeep Trackhawk engineers strengthened the vehicle's driveline components to keep up with the powerful, supercharged engine. For example, there is a 1-way clutch de-coupler, a 2,380cc per revolution supercharger with an integrated electronic bypass valve, and special-coated twin-screw rotors, among other goodies. The cast-iron engine has cold water jackets separating the cylinders, high-temp rated steel-alloy exhaust valves (up to 1,652°F), strengthened forged-alloy pistons, and a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surfaces (up to 1,600 psi). There are also a high-capacity oil/air heat exchanger, 2 high-flow, multi-mode fuel pumps, and Trackhawk-catered transmission programming. A stronger rear drive shaft meets up with a new, toughened rear axle and there is a new 4-point axle mounting pattern for spreading the load out equally. A wider chain pairs up with forged steel chain sprockets in the new transfer case. The TorqueFlite transmission also utilizes a new high-torque functionality and puts in an accelerated shift response that drivers will notice. All of these items are working seamlessly under the surface to bring the power to the drivetrain and get the Trackhawk past all obstacles with ease!
