Yes, it sounds a little bit like a video game title — but trust us, the Conquest Evade ($580,000) means nothing but business. Built on a Ford F550 Super Duty chassis, this tank-like luxury vehicle offers a commercial-grade air ride suspension in the front and rear, 360-degree, roof-mounted, joystick-controlled searchlights, 2+2 limousine-style seating, laptop trays, a third sunroof, an unarmored skin made from an aluminum-mild steel blend, handles machined out of solid aluminum, and a steering wheel, hinges, running boards, and even the key machined from solid stainless steel. Coming this fall.
When you're buying the fourth-generation of something, you expect a level of refinement above and beyond its predecessors — and the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover ($TBA) doesn't disappoint. All-new from the ground up, it uses an all-aluminum unibody structure — a first for a SUV — and an all-new aluminum front and rear chassis architecture to shed around 700 pounds compared to 2012 models. It pulls this off while adding nearly 5" of rear seat legroom, the next-generation of the Terrain Response system, and a range of V8 engines mated to new eight-speed ZF automatic transmissions, and retaining its legendary off road capabilities. Arriving just in time for the holidays.
Rally-ready, road-legal. The Bowler EXR S (£155,000; roughly $240,000) is one of the beefiest SUVs available, and is likely the closest thing you can get to a street-legal rally car. Built atop a Land Rover platform and powered by the automaker's 5.0L supercharged V8 pumping out 550hp, it reaches 0-62 in 4.2 seconds, boasts a top speed of 155mph, and offers a slew of race-ready features like a MSA approved advanced tubular roll cage, a custom composite body, Brembo brakes, Bi-Xenon headlamps, 22-inch wheels, Bilstein dampers, Eibach springs, two racing seats, and 3-point seat belts.
