6. Mercedes G63 AMG
Because Mercedes conceived it as a military vehicle, the G-Class has come a long way from a barebones off-road vehicle to a luxury SUV. In fact, it gets 563 HP from its 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8. The proof of its evolution is its boxy design, rugged mechanics and stance. But everything else is modern and luxurious.
With a price of almost $150,000, this is one of the most exclusive Mercedes products. And, despite its 5,000-pound weight, it is still one of the fastest SUVs out there. The G63 AMG is capable of jumping from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. And that’s not bad for a vehicle that has been in production since 1979.
