We love fast SUVs because they represent strength, power, and agility. Lucky for us, as SUVs become more popular, carmakers have made it a point to add sports car performance to these larger vehicles. We have narrowed down the fastest SUVs available now in 2020 which are primarily luxury brands. The speed ranking is determined by how quickly each model can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph as verified by the U.S. News & World Report.
The 2019 Tesla Model X Performance
Base Price: $104,990
0-60: 2.7 seconds
The 2019 Tesla Model X is an electric crossover whose acceleration is unmatched. Along with being both extremely fast and green, Model X has been hailed as one of the safest SUVs around. Its chassis, battery technology, and overall body structure provide added security for its passengers.
The exterior design is relatively understated but its Falcon Wing Doors like that of the ‘Back to the Future’ DeLorean is a dazzling contrast. The Tesla X also boasts an intricate interior technology information system, can seat seven and offers features like all-wheel drive.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
Base Price: $86,900
0-60: 3.5 seconds
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is less about off-roading and more about luxury. It’s the most powerful Jeep yet, and the most expensive. The SUV adopts the same 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine that the Dodge Charger models use while offering a towing capacity of 7,200.
The Trackhawk first unveiled in 2018 and has received minor upgrades since like 20- inch wheels, sophisticated leather interior, and standard sunroof.
2020 Lamborghini Urus
Base Price: $207,326
0-60: 3.6 seconds
The 2020 Lamborghini Urus is among the most alluring SUVs. This exotic option offers the Lambo extremity and acuteness now joined with the ability to tow up to 7,000 pounds. The Ursus makes you feel in control with precise handling, quick steering, and standard carbon-ceramic brakesIt’s obviously not the most practical option but it is the most inexpensive way to have your own Lambo.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S
Base Price: $84,100
0-60: 3.8 seconds
The 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S is a velvety-smooth ride inside and out. It has an exorbitant amount of performance features for gearheads to be excited about including a booming turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine, 516 lb-ft of torque, 9-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive.
2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio
Base Price: $80,445
0-60: 3.6 seconds
The 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a bold luxury SUV that provides precise handling and a powerful twin-turbo V-6 engine that makes it ride like a sports car. It has a particularly bulky exterior, but somehow it still works.
Alfa Romeo aimed to enhance the Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s interior features with an updated center console, infotainment system with a bigger touchscreen display, as well as an improved driver-assist feature that come standard. For a luxury vehicle, the model is still missing more robust tech features and the cargo space is pretty limited for an SUV.
