50 Most Expensive SUVs In The World

By automotive-mag.com 28 Min Read

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.

Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat

$96,200

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.

Tesla Model X Plaid

Tesla Model X Plaid

$96,380

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.

Audi SQ8

Audi SQ8

$97,795

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.

GMC Hummer EV SUV

GMC Hummer EV SUV

$99,470

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.

Lotus Eletre

Lotus Eletre

$105,400

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.

Maserati Grecale Trofeo

Maserati Grecale Trofeo

$105,500

Maserati’s newest SUV comes with a powerful Trofeo trim that starts at $105,500. At that price you get a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine making 523 horsepower, giving the luxury SUV a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 177 mph.

Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV

Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV

$105,550

Now entering its second model year, the flagship electric SUV from Mercedes is available in 450+, 450 4Matic, and 580 trims. There’s also the ultra-luxurious Maybach version that you’ll see later on this list. But $105,550 gets you a single-motor 335-horsepower powertrain with a 108.4-kilowatt-hour battery and a 305-mile range. Spend $126,000, and you’ll get a dual-motor setup with 536 horsepower.

Land Rover Range Rover

Land Rover Range Rover

$108,875

Even the base Range Rover ain’t cheap for 2024. The posh SUV starts at $108,875 with destination and quickly climbs from there with options. The base model has a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine with mild-hybrid assist that gives it 394 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, with a 0-60 mph time of around 5.5 seconds.

BMW iX M60

BMW iX M60

$112,495

You can buy a base BMW iX for about $87,000, and that gets you 516 horsepower and up to 311 miles of range. But slap an M badge on the backside of that electric crossover and it ups the ante to 610 hp with 290 miles of range, with a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds compared to 4.4.

Cadillac Escalade ESV

Cadillac Escalade ESV

$118,690

Measuring 227 inches long, the Cadillac Escalade ESV is a big boy. It’s 15.1 inches longer than the standard model, with an improved cargo capacity of 41.5 cubic feet behind the third row, rather than 25.5 cubic feet for the smaller variant. Both models are available with either a 6.2-liter V-8 making 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet or a turbodiesel 3.0-liter inline-six producing 277 hp and 460 lb-ft.

Lamborghini LM002

Lamborghini LM002

$120,000

Before the Urus, Lamborghini had a rugged, Hummer-like SUV called the LM002. Also known as the “Rambo Lambo,” it came with standard four-wheel drive and a V-12 engine making more than 440 horsepower. It wasn’t quick, reaching 60 mph in just 7.7 seconds, but they were rare. Lamborghini only built 328 examples between 1986 and 1993.

BMW X5 M Competition

BMW X5 M Competition

$123,295

$128,195

From a performance standpoint, the BMW X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition are nearly identical. They have the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine making 617 horsepower and the same compact mild-hybrid electric motor. But the key difference is the way these two SUVs look; the X5 has a traditional SUV shape while the X6 goes for a coupe-like look. If you want the coupe styling, it will cost you an extra $5,000 over the X5.

Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S SUV

Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S SUV

$128,850

The Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S is also a speedy SUV. It packs a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 making 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Mercedes-Benz G-Class

$144,150

Mercedes-AMG GLS63

$147,000

Alpina XB7

Alpina XB7

$150,395

Alpina started as a BMW tuner, but now the German automaker owns the brand outright. The XB7 takes the already luxurious X7 SUV and makes it even more posh with touches like Lavalina leather covering the steering wheel, myrtle wood trim, and optional Piano lacquer or Natural Walnut accents.

Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV

Land Rover Range Rover SV Long Wheelbase

$235,475

The previous-generation Range Rover SV was available in a long-wheelbase configuration that combined a powerful engine and a spacious cabin.

Ferrari Purosangue

Ferrari Purosangue

$402,050

The Purosangue is Ferrari’s entry into the sporty SUV market and is the brand’s first mass-produced model with four doors.

The posh cabin featured folding tables, heated and cooled cup holders, and a rear-seat entertainment system. The company limited production to just 99 units.

Dartz Prombron

Dartz Prombron

$1.2 Million

The Dartz Prombon is a bizarre and very expensive SUV from Latvia. The armored rig features a kevlar-titanium body, a retina scanner, fingerprint recognition, cameras, sirens, and electrified door handles. Buyers could specify a Mercedes-sourced twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 making as much as 1,500 horsepower. The company is still alive and kicking, and even promises a “more extreme” SUV in the near future.

Scarbo Vintage SV Rover

Scarbo Vintage SV Rover

$1.5 Million

The Scarbo Vintage SV Rover is a rugged-looking SUV that combines styling cues from the original Ford Bronco, Land Rover Defender, and H1 Humvee.

It has a two-speed transfer case and front- and rear-locking differentials. The pushrod suspension provides 30 inches of wheel travel, and there’s four-wheel steering for maximizing off-road capability. But you will have to dish out more than a million bucks if you want one.

Karlmann King

Karlmann King

$1.9 Million

The Karlmann King looks like the most expensive SUV in the world. The underpinnings came from the Ford F-550 heavy-duty pickup, while the company offered a bullet-resistant package to make the body as tough as the vehicle’s exterior appears. Inside, buyers could pick from four-, five-, six-, or seven-passenger configurations.

Amenities included a retractable TV, refrigerator, tables, and even a coffee machine. And this SUV as a beefy machine, so even with a 6.8-liter V-10 engine, the top speed was only 87 miles per hour. But as far as we can tell, Karlmann is no longer building its insane-looking King SUV. And the absurd asking price combined with limited production means it’s nearly impossible to find a used one these days—if you were so inclined.
