The most powerful SUV on the market, the 707 hp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is planning a high-powered preview at the New York International Auto Show later week, the Euro-American automaker set to debut two of the most powerful vehicles ever to roll off an American assembly line.
