Next Steps

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.
