If it’s time to shop for a new sport utility vehicle, chances are high that a potential buyer will run across some of the most expensive SUVs on the market. Even though the sticker price on most SUVs has the potential to raise eyebrows, the highest priced sport utility vehicles take the segment’s reputation for excess to the extreme. The top 10 most expensive sport utility vehicles certainly earn each place on the list. They all offer features and amenities to justify the sticker price, but it’s interesting to browse through and see how all of these high priced SUVs stack up. Are they mostly alike in terms of power and features, or do they have more differences than similarities? Auto manufacturers are always trying to find the perfect mix. Let’s see how the current crop compares.

The most expensive sport utility vehicles do the same things as the lower priced competition in the segment. They have off road capability and were originally designed and marketed to appeal to adventurous types.  They’re big, with enough space to carry plenty of passengers and all the cargo necessary for those excursions.  Plenty of them have decent towing capability; perhaps not as much as a high end work truck, but enough to suit many recreational needs. And SUVs must have a powerful enough engine and drivetrain to excel at all of these tasks. An SUV, especially the most high priced sport utility vehicles, can’t be stuttering and choking like it’s starved for power. Much like in the high priced pickups segment, being able to achieve the powerful feats that are advertised is absolutely crucial. Excess engine capability is always better than not having enough. The most expensive SUVs do all these things, of course, but depending on the particular model, they go about their business with considerably more power or lots more style.
