Top 10 Fastest SUVs

Top 10 Fastest SUVs

5. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 - 4.8 seconds

The sole American vehicle on this list is the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, packing plenty of domestic muscle with its 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine with 470 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Available at a respectable $64,990, the Grand Cherokee SRT8 gets 13 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway while accelerating to 60 mph from 0 in just 4.8 seconds.

    Why only include the 0-60 times? I think the 1/4 mile might be a better test overall instead of just the quick sprint, otherwise I thought the article was great.

  • MattieS

    Maybe they’re thinking in the span of red light to red light. . . . .

  • ColoradotoCali

    The X6 M is the fastest SUV – 0 to 60 in 4 seconds…not sure how you got your numbers on the Porsches

  • STI Turbo

    most cars here are european, and no one uses 1/4 mile times as benchmarks in europe so brands do not release this data.

  • worldbfree4me

    Nice, but there is no way I’d pay that for a Jeep. So, I suppose that Audi and the BMW present the best value proposition at least until the Porsche Maccan arrives!

  • Twinkledoodle

    why not? great interior and fast. best value out of these SUVs

  • Justin Wallace

    The fastest SUV is the Nissan Juke-R….

  • mcooper

    What about the fx50 at 5.0 seconds

  • Lame

    It’s distressing to see so many cars on a list of SUVs. Hardly any of these are actually Sport Utility Vehicles. Some of them appear to be the size of COMPACT cars.

  • frank

    I can’t believe the Toyota FJ didn’t make this list. They are incredibly quick.

  • Boris

    I’ve timed my slightly modified QX70S at 4.8

  • Bill

    Where is the Porsche Macan Turbo with the Sport Chrono package? It’s rated at 4.4 seconds, and should just sort of be made into the RS Q5…

  • Dino A

    Was the ML 63 AMG with the performance package or not? If not, i have destroyed every cayenne S i have ever raced…. this is before i put my Renntech chip in… after that its not even fair, i can take 911’s…

    Put the HellCat Supercharge in the Grand’ll smoke all of them. When Chrysler (jeep) starts supercharging or turbocharging their Vehicals…Game Over…hellcat engine 6.2 600+hp 600+ lb of torque ..not even Germans can screw with it. U gotta give Jeep it’s probs for the 6.4..the top five were either turbo or supercharged…once Chrysler starts bringing in the HellCat Enginr..again game over for all. I driven the new SRT GC…it’s handled and goes like a beast!

    I just got rid of my Jeep Grand Cherokee and replaced it with a Subaru Forester and an Audi Q5 and I could not be happier.
    My Subaru kicks but in quality, reliability, safety and off roading AWD
    My Audi Q5 TDI with over 400 ft/lbs of Torque and over 30 mpg out powers and out accelerates almost anything chrysler could even dream of.
    Jeep has good power & great off roading but quality, reliability and durability as well as safety all suck. Stupid issues like the A/C, the heater and stupid power windows falling into the doors because of the use of cheap plastic components all ruined the Jeep and chrysler brand to make me give up on all chrysler products after having owned 5 chryslers, from every decade since the 50’s except one.
    1. 1956 Plymouth Savoy w/ push button transmission
    2. 1973 Plymouth Fury III
    3. 1985 Dodge B150 Cargo Van
    4. 1997 Chrysler
    5. 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    oh and the notorious electrical issues that every chrysler will eventually have, sad, sad sad.

    More Jeep Recalls for quality and safety.
    it doesn’t even matter what your SUV can or can not due if it is unsafe and keeps breaking.
    Stupid chrysler has ruined and destroyed Jeep, even before Mercedes and Fiat got involved, but if you check out FIAT’s history, things will probably only get worse

  • Nick

    There is a world of difference between a Cayenne S and a Cayenne Turbo S…about 130 horsepower to start.

  • NannerAirCraft

    Can’t wait for the Tesla Model X with dual motors to beat all of these cars probably with a less than 4 sec 0-60 time.

  • rico

  • RP

    : i got the BMW X6. Happy that my ride landed on the 3rd. I can’t wait for the Lamborghini Urus to arrive and conquer the 1st Spot as Fastest SUV in the planet :)

  • Beastmode

    I just bought the Lamborghini reventon is fast let me tell you. Very happy with my purchase fastest car I ever had.

  • Lucas

    Personally I think the new GMC yukon xl Denali should be added. Sure it’s 0-60 is 5.5 seconds but it’s also a much bigger SUV than any of these and I do not believe it is supercharged


    Why is the 1st generation Jeep Srt8 not on here. It launches much harder than the second generation Jeep Srt. There were stock ones that went 12.9 in the quarter on a cool day. With a simple $300-400 tune they can go 12.7 in the quarter mile. Turbo ones have went 9’s in the quarter mile. There are many that run low 10’s on stock trans and motor. I have a turbo on mine at 6psi of boost it goes 11.4 in the quarter mile also ( 650+ HP and 700 LB Ft+ on only 6 psi of boost). Stock motor and trans just has blue top solenoids. If they bring the Track Hawk Jeep game over for other suvs. Once tuners get to them there will be many daily driven 800 hp plus Jeeps. I have also test drove Bmw X5 M and it felt weak compared to the first gen Jeep srt8 in stock form. Without Launch control the X5 M feels much slower there is no snap of the line. Even with LC it is just little faster off the line than no LC but no hard snap.

    it’s been confirmed to have a 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds. A full second off everyone else. lol!

  • Robert Hunt
