But now they can, with the introduction of the new 707-horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, set to be be unveiled at the New York Auto Show this week.
The all-wheel-drive monster is powered by none other than Dodge's SRT Challenger Hellcat engine, meaning it sports the same 707 horsepower as the sedan, along with 645 pound-feet of torque.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will go from 0-60 m.p.h.in 3.5 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee goes on sale in the United States towards the second half of 2017 and plans to bring it to the United Kingdom are under consideration.
Torque is delivered to the rear wheels via new ultra-high-strength steel half-shafts. Selecting one of these modes will adjust things like torque split, transmission shift pattern, suspension and the electric-assist power steering. The Trackhawk will be presented at this week's NY auto show, but details and photos can be found here. Jeep is calling this the most powerful and quickest SUV ever. The rears match the SRT8 and Hellcat cars at 13.78 inches with yellow four-piston calipers.
The Trackhawk doesn't look all that much different from a standard Grand Cherokee, and at first glance it might be easy to mistake it for the also-quite-powerful Grand Cherokee SRT. Meanwhile, a new driveshaft is hooked up to a stronger rear axle, and the rear differential is mounted using a new four-point mount to better distribute load.

It was Nunes who first raised the unmasking allegations, saying that some names were unmasked in the documents he reviewed. The House Intelligence Committee's ranking Democrat, Adam Schiff of California, praised Nunes' recusal.
Five driver-selectable modes called Auto, Sport, Track, Tow, and Snow, respectively, change the Trackhawk's character.
The list of standard safety technology is long, with adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, autonomous forward emergency braking at all speeds, front and rear parking sensors, and a trailer hitch camera view, which lets the driver check on a trailer through the backup camera while traveling at speed.
Apart from its bold styling, an easy way to tell a Trackhawk from other Grand Cherokee variants is air vents in place of the foglights at each side of the front bumper. The Trackhawk rides on 20-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels wrapped in standard 295/45 Pirelli Scorpion Verde All-season Performance run-flat tires.
The Trackhawk, which will come with a 3272kg tow capacity in the United States, comes with a host of chassis additions over the Grand Cherokee SRT too.
At the back, the angry Cherokee features a gloss black rear valence that showcases its four-inch "black chrome" quad exhaust tips. The interior surfaces feature premium soft-touch materials, unique Light Black Chrome finishes and carbon fiber spears.
