The SUV market is one of the most lively and busy sections of the automotive industry. For manufacturers, this market is an opportunity to give motorists value for money. For drivers, it’s a chance to feel safe when driving in all types of conditions. Naturally some marques prefer to go the extra mile financially when it comes to SUVs. Let’s take a look at some of the most expensive SUVs:
1) Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG
At first glance, this huge SUV looks like it would compete with the iconic Land Rover Defender because of the similar large exterior frame. However, the G65 is a thoroughbred SUV through and through judging from its steep price (£88,000 in the US) and its twin-turbo V12 engine. This engine gives the car plenty of torque and horsepower of 612. This G65 has the polish from AMG which makes it a stylish yet sturdy option for people who like SUVs.
2) Dartz Prombron
Latvian-based Dartz is a car maker that does things its way without looking at what everyone else is doing. This strategy has paid off in a big way with the Prombron. This SUV features extreme exterior styling that will appeal to a small yet passionate market of drivers. The starting price of the car is around £147,000. It’s clear that this SUV is on the aggressive side of SUVs for drivers who want something different.
3) Range Rover
While Range Rovers have been the poster children for the SUV market, new entrants into the industry have inspired Land Rover to continue innovating with this popular and decades-old model. The 510 horsepower makes the supercharged V8 stand out from the crowd. Prices hover at around £98,000 for the supercharged V8 while the standard model starts at over $80,000 in the US.
4) Porsche Cayenne
The Cayenne won over the hearts of the SUV buying public as it ensured that the German car maker was profitable. What makes the Cayenne unique is the power that lies underneath its stunning exterior. There are a wide range of engine options such as V6s and V8s. The 4.8 litre V8 engine allows the car to have a 550 horsepower, for example. Prices start at nearly £100,000.
5) BMW X6 M
The X6 M’s price begin at £60,000. For that cash, drivers can expect a twin-turbo force that can do 550 horsepower with a splash of torque that is unforgettable. This SUV marches from 0 – 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
As these expensive yet brilliant SUVs show, the market for sporty vehicles is piping hot as marques compete for the driving attention of SUV enthusiasts who know what they want.
