Watch this Hennessey GMC Yukon Out-Sprint a Hellcat
The Texas tuners over at Hennessey Performance are very good at making fast cars...well...faster. But the firm doesn't draw the line there. They're also quite adept at boosting Escalades, Range Rovers and even a Toyota Land Cruiser or two. This week John Hennessey got behind the wheel of his tuned 2015 GMC Yukon Denali XL, a big brute of an SUV, and he set about launching it through the quarter mile faster than your above-average sports car. Oh yeah, a race against a Dodge Challenger Hellcat ensues, take a look. RELATED: Watch the Hennessey C7 Corvette blitz the Quarter Mile
Admittedly, the Hellcat doesn't look like it got the greatest start off the line, however the Yukon did, and it made use of every single horsepower that the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 had to offer. That means a beefy 665 horsepower and 658 lb-ft of torque put to the crank.
Earlier in the video, Hennessey clocks the massive GMC from zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, which is quick by any standards and amazing considering it's achieved in a 6,000 pound behemoth. The quarter mile? That's disposed of in a prompt 13.4 seconds at 110 mph. There probably isn't a huge market for 13 second seven-seat SUVs, but if there were, this would probably be the one to buy.
