Top 10 SUVs with 300+ Horsepower

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged

If the Sixties were the stage for the Muscle Car Wars, we’re currently living through the Muscle SUV Wars, as manufacturers use new engine technologies to push the boundaries of power in sport utility vehicles. Twenty years ago, when SUVs began their rise in the marketplace, 150 horsepower represented the norm. Horsepower slowly began to creep upwards, however, as engines began to grow under bigger hoods.

Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards raised their ugly heads, and the big-engined SUV seemed to be on the way out. But advances in engine technology, including direct gasoline injection, turbocharging and supercharging granted a reprieve. Here are our favorite picks for top SUV horsepower brutes:
