10 of the Most Expensive SUVs on the Market Today

| |

The term SUV covers a pretty broad range of vehicles, but SUVs are generally characterized by two things: they’re good for off-roading and they have four-wheel drive. They also tend to be more durable vehicles and have a lot of storage space.

All those benefits make these vehicles very popular. SUVs accounted for nearly half of car sales in the U.S. in 2019 — and that number is expected to keep growing.

Since SUVs are so popular, it’s not surprising that people are willing to spend a lot of money to get their hands on them. These are the top 10 most expensive SUVs.

    This 2021 model features a lot of expensive details. The vehicle is available with several different power systems, including a hybrid version, a V8 version, a turbodiesel, and more. The interior includes multiple touch screens, a built-in navigation system, and an insulated cabin to keep traffic noise down.

    People really like Ford Broncos. When the first 2021 Ford Bronco ever made went up for sale via auction, the winning bid hit an insane $1,100,000.

    While $1,100,000 is a lot of money to spend on an SUV, all that cash went to a pretty good cause. According to Car and Driver, the winning bid was donated to the National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound, two organizations that are part of Ford’s efforts to get people out in nature more often.

Beyond luxuries like gold details and a V10, the SUV features optional armoring on the exterior, headlining that makes the ceiling look like a starry night sky, and a coffee machine.
