SUVs are the toys for those who have an affinity for the outdoors and also love the roar of revving engines. And if they are looking for the most expensive ones in the market here is a low-down on the world’s most expensive SUVs on offer in 2015.
Land Rover Range Rover Autobiography
The name of Land Rover is in itself enough for the enthusiasts and when it comes with a 5 liter, inter-cooled, supercharged V8 under its hood then anyone who has the money will be glad to own one. Well they will have to fork around anything between $137,995 and $200,995 depending on the version. But it is not only the power. The looks and what you get for the price do matter. The look is distinctly Range Rover and the smooth all- terrain drive has been made possible by the fully automated Land Rover Terrain Response 2 System. Moreover, you get peace of mind with unparalleled safety provided by the SUV.
2015 Mercedes Benz G-Class
Mercedes cannot be left behind when the countdown is for luxury motor vehicles. So with an average price tag of $137,150, its G-Class comes to be the second most expensive SUV hitting the roads in 2015. As usual the craftsmanship of Mercedes-Benz gives you a perfect off-road experience. The power comes from the 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 engine that generates 536 hp of power. As far as safety is concerned, it is slated to be one of the safest cars on the road. Finally, with the classic looks of a terrain vehicle, it stands out from the rest.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo
Porsche is another brand that symbolizes luxury. It too has its share in the who’s who of expensive SUVs and it is represented by its Cayenne Turbo. The 4.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine under the hood generates an immense 570 hp of power. If you want to know what you get for the price apart from the luxury, well you get everything – integrated navigation system, air bags for all the passengers, cruise control and a lot more.
2015 Mercedes Benz GL-Class
Closely following the G Class is the GL Class. It too has the AMG 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 as the power source but with a little bit more power. It is a car that will literally protect you from all angles in case of a crash. It has overhead airbags for the third row as well as knee air-bags to protect the driver’s legs. This makes it an ideal SUV for a family outing. The style and looks do not ooze the muscular feeling unlike the other SUVs and that makes it an ideal choice for the ladies too. All these will come for around $120,000.
The X6M costs around $103,000 and it is a BMW. That is enough to tell what you can get for the money. Compared to the giants it the field, it sports a relatively smaller capacity of 4.4 liter for its V8 engine, but it generates a huge 567 hp of power. Apart from it, all the usual features of a luxury SUV are present in the X6. So you get automatic transmission, an integrated navigation system, air bags on all sides, automatic air conditioning and a relatively smooth ride.
2015 Mercedes Benz M-Class
Again it’s a Merc. The M Class comes for a bit under $100,000 and carries the same power source as the G-Class and GL-Class though with a little less power. But the M-Class is a great luxury SUV for city driving too. The cruise control system adjusts the vehicle’s speed to the flow of traffic. If you have an explorer in you, you can follow any route, drive to any destination. Just follow the directions of the integrated navigation system. As far as safety goes, every passenger is protected by air bags and there is one for the knees of the driver too.
Cadillac Escalade ESV
The American luxury car brand comes in at number six with its 2015 Escalade ESV. The SUV hums with the power of EcoTec 6.2 liter engine churning out 420 horsepower. Costing just around $95,000 it comes with an integrated navigation system and air bags to cover each and every passenger. Keeping in mind the privacy of its passengers, the Escalade comes with curtains for each of the seats. So every time you take a nap, you keep out of the eyes of the onlookers and blazing sun.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport
If you thought you have missed out on the power and glory of the Range Rover Autobiography, just take a look at the new 2015 Range Rover Sport. It comes with the same 5 liter, inter-cooled, supercharged V8 and generates the same power of 510 hp and it comes at almost half the price at around $ 93,000. If you think that the lesser price tag results from cuts in luxury and comfort, think twice. It has seats suitable for long journeys, has the safety standards found in all the luxury SUVs and comes with air-conditioners that have been rated among the highest in its class.
Lexus LX 570
Lexus makes it to the list with its LX 570 SUV. The 570 stands for the 5.7liter V8 engine which is powerful enough to take you through any terrain. Coming for a price tag of around $83,000 on an average, it offers utility with luxury. Like all other high-end SUVs it too carries an integrated navigation system designed to take you almost anywhere. The car features 7 seats, a perfect one for a large family. When it comes to family, the Pre-Collision system in the Lexus LX 570 provides added safety.
Toyota Land Cruiser
This SUV, with an average price tag of around $80,000 makes up the list. Its big 5.37 liter i-FORCE V8 engine produces around 381 hp of power. Compared to the engine capacity it may seem low, but that does not mean that it does not have the power. It is an all weather, all terrain vehicle that comes with all the features of a SUV.
So, if you have the hunger for adventure and style these SUVs are sure to tingle a nerve in you and you should feel – let’s go for it.
