2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

Okay, we'll admit "most powerful, high performance Jeep ever made" isn't the most impressive title in the world, but it belongs to the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 ($TBA) nonetheless. Powered by a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 pumping out 465 hp — you might remember it from the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 — the SRT8 Jeep goes from 0-60 in just 4.8 seconds, with a governed top speed of 155, and a slew of other features like a new adaptive damping suspension, a new active valve exhaust system, an AutoStick transmission with steering wheel paddle and console shifting options, five-spoke, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, a one-piece front fascia for a sportier look, a dual-sport exhaust system, and all the interior appointments of a high-end SUV.

  • 2011 Dodge Durango Heat

    It might not have the most smoking looks, but the 2011 Dodge Durango Heat ($30,300) packs a surprising amount of... power. The five-passenger, full-size SUV features a Pentastar V-6 producing 296 horsepower and good for 23 miles per gallon fuel economy, an aggressively-tuned suspension for hugging the curves, available all-wheel-drive, a color-matched grille, 20-inch wheels, a dual exhaust, and whopping 50 cubic feet of storage behind the second row of seats — more than enough room to practice making the progeny it will take to fill it.

  • Land Rover Defender X-Tech

    If you long for the boxy, rugged looks of classic Rovers but want to keep the creature comforts of modern models, check out the Land Rover Defender X-Tech (£25,000; roughly $40,000). Available in three-door 90 or five-door 110 varieties, the X-Tech features a blocky front end with black on the roof, wheel arches, and headlight assemblies, a silver (90) or olive green (110) exterior, glossy black 16-inch "Saw Tooth" alloy wheels, a 2.4L common-rail diesel powerplant, and all the off-road chops you'd expect. If only they were selling it in the U.S.
