    • BMW F98 X4M Competition vs. Jeep Trackhawk drag race

      The BMW F95 X5M is the natural matchup against the Jeep Trackhawk. It has a boosted V8 and is closer in curb weight. That weight issue is what makes the new F98 X4M (and F97 X3M) so potent as it is just as capable of making power and torque as the bigger X5M in a lighter package.


      If you look at tuned F97 X4M S58 figures and tuned F95 X5M S63TU2 figures you will be surprised just how close the peak figures are despite the S58 giving up two cylinders and 1.4 liters of displacement. Boost is a wonderful thing, eh?

      Speaking of displacement the Trackhawk has plenty at 6.2 liters plus a twin screw blower on top. That Hellcat V8 makes 707 horsepower but carries 5360 pounds or roughly 860 more pounds than the X4M.

      So how does a drag race go? It's neck and neck. The Jeep gets a jump and hold essentially that same lead until they shut down.

      The rematch has the X4M get a better start and it eventually pulls past the Jeep.

      It is somewhat sad the monster Jeep gets pulled by the BMW with a motor less than half the size. The X4M simply does more with less.

        It looks like the Trackhawk and X4M run similar E.T.’s with the X4M trapping a couple MPH higher in independent tests, so the results in this video seem to be pretty typical.

        The Trackhawk ended up being much slower than expected: https://www.boostaddict.com/content....-and-it-s-slow
