Speed is not subject. It’s a measureable constant with many known variables – such as, weight, tire sizes, engine types (ICE vs Electric), altitude etc. SUVs over the past decade and half have been getting more and more powerful as the vehicle manufactures get insanely competitive.
The crown for the fastest SUV on planet earth changes heads yearly as car engineers wage an all out war with physics. At SUV.me we’ve done the research so you won’t have to.
Simply put ICE SUVs and Electric SUV (e-SUVs) are in two totally separate classes so they must be evaluated separately; cuz fair is fair, right?
The Fastest ICE SUV as August 2022, is the 2022 Cayenne Turbo GT which is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8. The Cayenne Turbo GT’s beast of an engine has 631 horse power which can propel the car from 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds.
Now, the fastest SUV on earth is the 2022 Tesla Model X Plaid. This three motor goliath is equipped with 1,020 horse power max. All that technological marvel pushes the 2022 Model X Plaid from 0-60mph in an otherworldly 2.5 seconds. BTW it has a top speed of 163mph – grocery runs may require a helmet now I guess?
