16. Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio
Until Ferrari makes an SUV, this is the closest thing they’ve got, which is the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. With a 2.9-liter turbocharged V6 engine they derived from Ferrari’s turbo V8, this is a prime example of Italian charm with brutal power in the SUV class. The new Stelvio is an important model for the factory, especially on the American market.
This is a mid-size SUV, but in Quadrifoglio trim, it is a sports car. The turbo V6 produces 505 HP. And with its 50/50 weight distribution, perfectly tuned suspension, quick gearbox, and surge brakes, the Stelvio is one SUV missile. The 0 to 60 time is just 3.9 seconds and the top speed is a lofty 177 mph. The car will be for sale soon at a base price of over $100,000.
These are the 16 family haulers with more power than the Mustang GT. If you are in the market for an SUV that can haul and go fast, one of these should fill the bill. And best yet, they come in a variety of price ranges, so you should be able to find one you can afford.
