Jeep Trackhawk vs. LS9 Swapped Chevy Colorado – $4000 Street Race

December 11th, 2020

Tonight, we take it to the streets (of Mexico) for a dig race between two of the most powerful street trucks you are likely to encounter in a single lifetime. More precisely, we are headed to the left coast and notorious Compton Speedway. From a purely traditional standpoint, it don’t get more street than this venue. The competitors are on hand and the details are sorted. Now, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road for some dig racing action.

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last half-decade, you are familiar with the baddest SUV on the planet. The Jeep Trackhawk is an all-wheel drive beast with a 797hp (on race fuel) blown HEMI under the hood. The 6.2-liter HEMI drives an automatic transmission and the Trackhawk can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7-seconds. It can also turn the quarter-mile in 10.7-seconds @ 132 mph. The Trackhawk weighs in at a hefty 5,356-pounds.

The mid-size Chevrolet Colorado comes (from the factory) with few truly high-performance options. This particular truck has been outfitted with an engine from a Chevy Corvette. It is a supercharged (Lingenfelter) 6.2-liter LS9 V8 capable of producing 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. While the Colorado pickup is certainly lighter than the Trackhawk, it is also rear-wheel drive only. The nitrous system on the Colorado is disconnected for this contest.

This should be an intense race – especially with $4,000 on the line.
