Today’s sport-utility vehicles put more emphasis than ever on the “sport” part of the equation, with automakers routinely delivering in excess of 500 hp in their latest hi-po SUVs. But just packing in the ponies wasn’t enough for victory in today’s Autobytel Auto Poll.

At the head of the class was the Porsche Cayenne Turbo with “only“ 500 horses but 31 percent of the vote, followed by the 470-hp Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 that was the preferred pick of 19 percent of the current survey respondents.
