List of fastest accelerating SUVs

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

This list is limited to unmodified production cars which meet the eligibility criteria below. All entries must be able to be verified from reliable sources.

Eligible cars[edit]

Cars are eligible for these lists are production cars of the sport utility vehicle (SUV) type, or pickup truck. Eligible cars need to be:

  • four-wheel drive;
  • constructed principally for retail sale to consumers, for their personal or business use, and to transport people on public roads;
  • fitted with the original manufacturer supplied tyres;
  • had 25 or more instances made by the original vehicle manufacturer, and offered for commercial sale to the public in new condition (kit cars and cars modified by either professional tuners or individuals are not eligible);
  • street-legal in their intended markets, and capable of passing any official tests or inspections required to be granted this status; and
  • able to reach 0–100 km/h time or 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 5.0 seconds or less for the first list, or cover quarter mile (402 m) from a standing start in 15 seconds or less for the second list.

By 0–100 km/h time or 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) (5.0 seconds or less)[edit]

This list includes unmodified production cars (as opposed to concept or modified cars). If an independent time becomes available, that time will be listed over the manufacturer's time regardless if the latter is quicker. Many elements change how fast the car can accelerate to 60 mph. Tires, elevation above sea level, weight of the driver, equipment used for testing, and surface of testing track all play a big part in these times. Most cars are 4-seaters or more, although a few (pickup-trucks) only hold 2 seats. Some measurements exclude the first foot-rollout.
