Fastest SUVs in 2019
Just because you need family practicality or off-road capability doesn’t mean you want to go slow. We’re rounding up the fastest SUVs to help you satisfy your need for speed — and versatile cargo solutions. When the kids ask, “Are we there yet?” you’ll just respond, “Hold on!” and mash the gas. That’ll teach ’em.
Our list of 2019’s fastest SUVs combines manufacturer claims about power and acceleration and the results from our own instrumented testing. Our experts test hundreds of vehicles every year, so we’re putting that knowledge to work to help you find the fast SUV that’s right for you.
Now that you know the fastest SUVs, it’s time to consider your budget and your needs (or, perhaps, just your desires). Our full ratings and reviews can help you better understand each vehicle and choose the one that’s right for you. You can also use our shopping tools to find discounts in your area.
It’s worth remembering that many of the SUVs in this list are pricier trim levels of vehicles that are still fun to drive even when they make a bit less power. If the drag strip doesn’t feature regularly in your commute, it might be worth weighing the pros and cons of stepping down a bit engine-wise to get a better price and better fuel economy.
