Trying to decide which road-eating high-end SUV to choose just got more complicated. The 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR is ready to run with the fastest out there, thanks to a 5.0L supercharged V8 that's putting out 550hp, 40 more horses than you'll get out of the standard Supercharged model. The boost in power — when coupled with the reworked 8-speed automatic transmission that shifts 50 percent faster — improves the 0-60 time to just 4.5 seconds and the top speed to 162 mph, Other features include exclusive colorways, Active Roll Control, new, more aggressive front and rear fascias, and Rover's traditionally great interior.
It's not the type of vehicle you'd drive to the mall, but if you're planning a multi-day adventure in the far reaches of the wilderness, the KiraVan is just what you're looking for. This modified Unimog is powered by a Mercedes-made 6-cylinder turbo diesel engine cranking out 260hp and 700ft-lb of torque, and its stretched frame makes room for a four-door cabin — more like a cockpit, really, thanks to its eleven display screens — and an articulating fifth-wheel trailer hitch. Speaking of the trailer, it works in conjunction with the tractor to offer 6-wheel drive at speeds up to 25mph, is fully capable of operating as a standalone base station, and features up to 3 sleeping areas, a full kitchen, a server-based media library, two computers with Internet connection, satellite HDTV, and even a 4K monitor. In other words, it's perfect for video shoots, research teams, or just a really posh camping trip.
It's hard to believe that Stuttgart's sports car in an oversized body has been around for over a decade, but with two generations under its belt, it's hitting its stride with the next-generation 2015 Porsche Cayenne. Available in four varieties — Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, and the all-new Cayenne S E-Hybrid — this sporty SUV features a sharper, cleaner design, power output between 240-520hp, with the S getting an entirely new 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 engine that mixes power with fuel economy, Bi-Xenon headlights on the Diesel, S, and S E-Hybrid models and LED headlights on the Turbo, and all the interior and handling refinements that the brand is famous for.
