The 15 Fastest SUVs On Sale Today 2021

Back in the day if you had an SUV you need it because it was practical, spacious, and had off-road capabilities. Speed was the last thing in people’s minds when they shopped for SUVs. Then the 90s came and pickup trucks started fast and SUVs became more popular.

Today, SUVs are more popular than ever and brands who were never in the SUV game started jumping on board. Now we have SUVs that are just as fast (if not faster) than some sports cars (even supercars) in a straight line. It’s an exciting time to be part of the automotive industry as you can now have sports car capabilities while being able to take the family around and make no compromises. Here is a rundown of some of the fastest SUVs you can buy today, there’s even a Lamborghini.

Range Rover Sport SVR: 4.3 seconds

Land Rover has always been known for its capable off-road SUVs as well as being very luxurious. They also decided they can do the speed thing and the latest Range Rover Sport SVR produces 575 horsepower from its 5.0 liter supercharged V8. 0-60 comes in 4.3 seconds while hitting a top speed of 176 mph. The great thing about this is it still looks like every other Range Rover on the road so you definitely have a sleeper on your hands except maybe for the noisy exhaust note.

Range Rover Velar SV autobiography: 4.3 seconds

The Velar was first introduced to us in 2017 as a new vehicle in the brand’s lineup. For 2020, it inherited the fire-breathing 5.0 liter V8. Here it puts out 550 horsepower and hits 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and tops out at 170 mph.

Porsche Macan turbo: 4.3 seconds

The Macan turbo is the smallest SUV that Porsche makes but if the 911 has taught us anything then all Porsches are definitely fast and so is this one. Power comes from a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 which produces 434 horsepower but we know Porsche’s numbers don’t tell the whole story. The SUV can hit 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 167 mph.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan black badge: 4.3 seconds

Rolls-Royce will always prioritize luxury over speed and performance anytime any day but the V12 under the hood is not for show. They are so proud of their Creations that they don’t brag about  0-60 times or top speed but these cars are very capable of hitting some very high numbers. The ridiculously smooth 6.75 liter V12 produces 592 horsepower and hits 60 mph in 4.3 seconds with a top speed of about 155 mph.

Jaguar F Pace SVR: 4.1 seconds

The SVR name Returns in the Jaguar F pace SUV. It gets the thunderous 5.0 liter V8 found in the Jaguar F-type SVR as well as its Range Rover brother and here it also produces 550 horsepower and can hit 60 in 4.1 seconds while hitting a top speed of 176 mph.

BMW X3M Competition: 4.0 seconds

The X3 is one of the smaller SUVs found in the BMW lineup, it comes in different variants but if you want the fastest version then you go for the X3M competition. This compact SUV is equipped with BMW’s turbocharged 3.0 liter inline 6 engine producing a massive 503 horsepower. It can hit 60 in 4 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph for the standard trim and if you pay a little extra BMW will remove the limiter and you can hit 177 mph and that is a lot for a small SUV. It comes standard with all-wheel drive to help you out of those sticky situations.

Bentley Bentayga Speed: 3.8 seconds

The Bentayga is the first luxury SUV to combine all-out luxury with extreme performance. Bentley has taken the Ethos of the Continental GT and put it up in an SUV and I’m very sure Bentley’s clients will be very pleased. Power comes from Bentley’s torque-filled 6.0-liter W12 engine making 626 horsepower. This rockets this luxury land yacht to 60mph in 3.8 seconds and hits a top speed of 190mph which is the fastest any SUV on this list has gone.

Maserati Levante trofeo: 3.7 seconds

Maserati hasn’t been producing the most exciting cars in recent years but when they launch the Levante it raised some eyebrows. The Levante was better than people expected and the new Trofeo model has taken things a step further. The Levante Trofeo now has a twin-turbocharged 3.8 liter V8 from Ferrari and here it makes 580 horsepower to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. When trying to launch this SUV it always wants to ride past its brakes but when you get the launch right 0-60 comes in at 3.7 seconds. It goes on to hit a top speed of 187 mph, this is definitely the most exciting Maserati in recent memory until the MC20 comes out.

BMW X5M Competition: 3.7 seconds

Another BMW makes the list and for good reason, they make a lot of SUVs. But the recipe here is more power and less weight which is why the smaller SUVs even though having the same power as their bigger Brothers seem to achieve faster times. The X5M is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 which makes 617 horsepower. It can take you to 60 in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 177mph, this SUV was built for cruising on the Autobahn.

Audi RS Q8: 3.7 seconds

Audi has always added the RS badge to its most sporty vehicles, even their SUVs. The RSQ8 is the latest SUV to receive the RS badge, it shares the same engine with the Lamborghini Urus. A 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 detuned to 591 horsepower and cost a little bit less than the Lamborghini. 60 mph comes in at 3.7 seconds up to a top speed of 190mph.

Mercedes AMG GLE63s: 3.7 seconds

AMG has always been about stuffing big power in their smallest cars but in recent years just like BMW, they’ve given their SUVs the power treatment. The GLE not only gets big power but also has some hybrid assist, the famous 4 liter twin-turbo V8 assisted with a mild EQ boost produces 603 horsepower. It has a top speed of 174 mph and hits 60mph in a very sports car quick 3.7 seconds.

Mercedes AMG GLC63s: 3.6 seconds

Mercedes understands the importance of SUVs just as much as BMW, and when you have many to choose from you end up sticking a V8 in another one of your models. The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 produces 503 horsepower sent to all four wheels via its clever 4matic system. 60 mph is achieved in 3.6 seconds and top speed comes at 174 mph.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifolio: 3.6 seconds

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio quadrifoglio it’s definitely a sign that the Italians can make SUVs to be just as dynamic and exciting as their sports cars. The Stelvio is equipped with a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 engine producing 505 horsepower from a Ferrari derives V6. It sends all power to the rear wheels and is able to achieve a time of 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 176 mph.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S e-hybrid: 3.6 seconds

It’s never a surprise to see a Porsche on the list of the fastest SUVs for a second time. Their launch control is just perfect whether it be in their 911 sports car Panamera or Cayenne SUVs. This latest Cayenne is a hybrid and combined with its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and an electric motor it makes 670 horsepower. It has an electric range of just 12 miles and green accents everywhere. 0 to 60 comes in at 3.6 seconds and the top speed of this SUV is 183 mph and you can have it in full SUV or coupe form.

Jeep Trackhawk: 3.5 seconds

The hellcat recipe lives on in the Jeep Grand Cherokee trackhawk but unlike its originator, this can actually put the power down. The 6.2 liter supercharged V8 still producing 707 horsepower but that power is sent to all 4 wheels which give the trackhawk amazing traction and acceleration off the line. 60 flashes by at 3.5 seconds and that supercharger continue to whine up to 180 mph.

Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat: 3.5 Seconds

If you’re looking for the speed of a hellcat and the practicality of an SUV dodge has decided to do exactly just that by giving the Dodge Durango the Hellcat engine. The 6.2 l supercharged V8 produces 710 horsepower in this 3 row SUV I hit 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds to the top speed of 180 mph. The utilitarian part of this SUV has not been compromised. It can sit the whole family while being able to tow up to 8700 pounds while sounding very nasty with that supercharger whine upfront.

Lamborghini Urus: 3.5 seconds

Lamborghini is no stranger to going fast in a straight line, it may seem like they’re late to the SUV game. But history shows that Lamborghini was the first automaker to produce a super SUV back in the 90s with the LM002. The Urus is a different Beast from its ancestor, instead of a V12, this SUV has a twin-turbo V8 shared with the Audi RS Q8. This time it produces 650 horsepower and ties the Bentley Bentayga for a top speed of 190 mph. 60 comes in at 3.5 seconds, Lamborghini also throws in some fantastic luxuries to make sure you’re comfortable while hitting these incredible speeds.

Ford Mustang Mach E GT: 3.5 seconds

 When you hear the Mustang name you think sports car, V8, manual, Rear wheel drive but not this Mustang. The Mustang Mach E is Ford’s first electric SUV wearing the mustang name, the regular Mach E produces 266 horsepower. But the GT produces 459 horsepower and can hit 60mph in 3.5 seconds(estimated) and tops out at 130mph(estimated) which is not so fast if you ask me.

Tesla Model X Performance: 2.6 seconds

Tesla destroyed the acceleration game with its Model S, so it’s no surprise that the king of acceleration for the SUVs would be its model X. For 2021 the performance has been added to tesla’s lineup of fast SUVs, its dual electric motors produce a total of 503 horsepower. The secret to tesla’s speed is not in its power numbers but its instant acceleration. This makes this SUV hit 60 mph in 2.6 seconds but that speed falls off at the top end coming in at 163mph.

Do you like SUVs? and if you do which would you pick from this list.  If your preferred SUV is not on this list still let us know, we would love to hear your thoughts.
