The World’s 50 Most Expensive SUVs

Money can’t buy happiness, but it can get you an absurdly fancy SUV. Companies like Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, and Mercedes-Benz all have high-priced, impeccably styled SUVs packed with powerful engines and loaded with amenities. Naturally, they don’t come cheap.

We’ve scoured the internet and found 50 of the most expensive SUVs money can buy, all of them starting at $95,000 or higher—and a few reaching into the millions. Some of these SUVs are extremely rare or coachbuilt on other platforms, while others have been out of production for a few years. But all of them are exceptionally pricey.

Each of these prices represent the cost of the SUV when new (with destination, when applicable), so we’re not counting any sold at auction or secondhand to collectors. Regardless, there are many millions of dollars worth of SUVs on this list.

50.Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat



In 2021, Dodge shoved a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine under the hood of its biggest SUV, the Durango. The result was a three-row with 710 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque, giving it enough oomph to hit 60 mph in a blistering 3.4 seconds. It’s one of the quickest SUVs on this list, but it probably won’t be around after this year.

49.Tesla Model X Plaid


If you want to go quick with a bunch of people on board, you can’t do better than the Model X Plaid. With a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds, it’s the quickest production SUV in the world. Tesla lists the 1,020-horsepower, tri-motor Plaid with 326 miles of range courtesy of a 100.0-kilowatt-hour battery, but opting for the dual-motor model bumps the range to 335 miles for a $68,590 starting price.

48.Audi SQ8


Audi’s combustion-powered SQ8 sports a minor refresh for 2024, bringing an updated grille, front fascia, and headlights to the party. Things are the same behind that face, namely the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 generating 500 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. With a starting price of $97,795, it’s a tad more than the electric SQ8 Sportback E-Tron.

47.GMC Hummer EV SUV


With the Edition 1 trim spoken for, the GMC Hummer EV SUV 2X is the entry point for the massive people mover. $99,470 gets you a dual-motor Ultium powertrain with a GM-estimated 570 horsepower and an EPA-estimated range of 303 miles. The 3X bumps range to 314 miles with its monstrous 205-kilowatt-hour battery, but the price goes up too—$106,945 to be exact.

46.Lotus Eletre


Sleek and fast with its dual-motor electric powertrain making up to 905 horsepower, the Eletre is a significant departure from typical Lotus vehicles. Among other things, there’s room for five people inside, and the 112.0-kilowatt-hour battery pack is good for 310 miles between charges. It also weighs 5,500 pounds, a properly enormous figure for a Lotus. But it has mass-market appeal, and at $105,400, it undercuts many rivals in the luxury performance SUV segment.
