These are the 5 Highest Horsepower Wagons

Station wagons still seem to dot the driveways of America. Admittedly however, there are fewer of them when compared the to late 1970s and early 1980s. The mini-van did a lot to stifle the station wagon segment. Although, there are a few that remain that are pretty powerful. Here is a list of the five highest horsepower station wagons

2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class AMG E 63 S Wagon

2020 Volvo V90 Cross Country 

Volvo made a name for itself making safe wagons. Although they have taken risks in branching out and making hatchbacks and SUVs, they still make a pretty strong performance wagon. Edmunds says of the V90 Cross Country, “interior is upscale and stylish” and “more off-road capability than in regular wagons.”

  • Zero-to-sixty  5.6 seconds
  • 316 horsepower
  • Turbocharged and supercharged 4-cylinder
  • MSRP starts at $54,550

BONUS: 2019 Ford Flex Limited

The Ford Flex has been a slow seller the last few years. That is why it is on this list as a bonus. Some dealers still have 2019 Flex Limiteds sitting on their lots. So, if you can find one, you will score a wagon with some serious motivating power. Edmunds says, “Turbocharged V6 engine has an abundance of power” and “Outward visibility is excellent for such a large vehicle.”

  • Zero-to-sixty 5.9 seconds
  • 365 Horsepower
  • Turbocharged EcoBoost V6
  • MSRP starts at $38,790

Although for a while wagons were waning in popularity, they are still among us. Some of them are serious performance beasts too. So, if you are considering a performance wagon, keep the list above handy for reference. It may be 2020, but the state of the wagon is still strong.
