We already went through the full-size luxury SUV class for 2024. High-end models of those vehicles are the most expensive models in the entire SUV world. Well, there are a few exemptions where big mid-size SUVs are heavily loaded with premium options.
Here is the list of the 12 most expensive SUVs for 2024. The minimum price buyers are paying for those is $150,000. We’ll keep an eye on new launches and update the prices if the new models of existing vehicles arrive.
2024 Ferrari Purosangue – $350,000
This is the most anticipated SUV in the past few years. We can say that Porsche made exotic carmakers turn into a new segment. But, the trigger for Ferrari was the appearance of the Lamborghini Urus. The Purosangue is now official and we can’t wait for the full specs and price sheets to be announced. One thing is sure – this is going to be a unique SUV in the market, as well as the most expensive.
According to estimations and predictions, the 2024 Ferrari Purosangue is going to cost more than $350,000. We are sure that the Italian carmaker will pack the SUV with a powerful engine. Experts believe a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 can deliver more than 700 hp thanks to powerful electric motor support. Also, a V-12 is possible, with an incredible output of 790 horsepower. The performance is never in doubt with Ferrari. Besides the crazy price, the downside of the Purosangue will be a lack of interior space. The SUV is going to offer attractive coupe styling with the slopped roofline.
2024 Rolls-Royce Cullinan – $342,000
The only other SUV that costs more than $300k is the 2024 Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Like always, the British company is crafting a unique vehicle for a limited number of buyers. The SUV debuted in 2018, and ever since, it is the most expensive model in this segment. A 6.75-l V-12 engine is under the hood, which delivers 590 hp.
The list of unique features is very long. The price is not $342,000 randomly determined. The Black Badge package was available for the 2021 YM, but the company didn’t offer it for the latest Cullinan. If it comes back, the price easily jumps over $400k, beating Ferrari Purosangue as the most expensive SUV in the market.
2024 Bentley Bentayga Speed – $255,000
Bentley is as famous as Rolls-Royce. Its Bentayga was out before the Cullinan, but the Rolls-Royce beats its rivals with a more exclusive offer. On the other hand, Bentayga is slightly more approachable, with a base price of $195,000 for the latest edition. The 2024 Bentley Bentayga Speed is a high-end option with numerous upgrades. After the revisit, this model is going to cost $255k.
The company enhanced the performance of the SUV. Well, the Speed badge indicates that Bentayga has a sportier version. A turbocharged W-12 engine can crack 625 hp and 665 lb-ft of torque. Converted to a 0-60 mph run, we get 3.8 seconds and a max speed of 190 mph. Besides the base and Speed model, the luxury SUV also offers a hybrid version.
2024 Aston Martin DBX707 – $235,000
British carmakers dominate the top of the list of the most expensive 2024 luxury SUVs. Aston Martin revisited the DBX and slapped the new price. The base model is getting more expensive, but the 2024 Aston Martin DBX707 is the $235k model with the most advanced technology.
Under the hood of the SUV is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. It delivers nearly 700 hp and 665 lb-ft of torque. The 2024 Aston Martin DBX707 will take only 3 seconds to sprint 0-60 mph, and it can get up to 193 mph. A nine-speed automatic transmission sends power to all wheels. It is not all about power. The all-new DBX also looks very powerful, with a quad-tip exhaust, large wheels, a special rear spoiler, and a futuristic interior.
2024 Lamborghini Urus – $230,000
Urus brought the revolution to the SUV world. Well, it was actually all about the Lamborghini, the Italian company well-known for its exotic cars. The Urus was the first four-door vehicle they produced. Also, the carmaker is a pioneer in the class we can call exotic SUVs. Of course, the price of the new vehicle was not affordable, but no one expected to buy a Lambo for a change.
The SUV is available for $230,000. In 2022, we saw a couple of special editions – Pearl Capsule and Graphite Capsule. For now, we don’t know if those will remain standard options for the 2024 Lamborghini Urus. Nevertheless, any upgrade will make the SUV cost closer to $250k. Experts believe the new Urus is just around the corner and that Lambo is preparing a special edition to compete with the Ferrari Purosangue.
2024 Range Rover SVAutobiography – $220,000
The base version of the Range Rover is not too far away from the competition. But, the SUV delivers a lot of choices and the top of the range models cost a lot more. The most expensive is the 2024 Range Rover SVAutobiography LWB with a price tag of $220k. The SVAutobiography Dynamic can also make this list with $185k and there are a few versions of P525 and P530 models above $150,000.
The 2024 Range Rover SVAutobiography comes with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 557 hp. The top of the range version also uses a long wheelbase. To improve the performance, engineers installed a unique suspension calibration. The interior is also special, with quilted-leather seats and interior wood trim. The rear-seat entertainment system uses 10-inch screens.
2024 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT – $185,000
The 2024 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT is bringing the game to another level. The lineup is already very versatile. The base model is not worth of mentioning. But, higher-end versions are more than interesting. The Turbo GT is the latest addition. Combined with the coupe styling, we are getting the most expensive version of the Cayenne SUV.
A 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 is the powerplant for all the high-end models of a luxury vehicle. For the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT, it delivers 631 horsepower and 626 pound-feet. It is enough to make the SUV sprint 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds. You can select the Sport Chrono package for maximum performance. Many enthusiasts call it a lighter version of the Lamborghini Urus, or a 911 with a lifted body. Anyway, it is far away from both Lambo or the GT3 version of the 911 sports car.
2024 Mercedes GLS Maybach – $165,000
The GLS is more expensive than the G-Wagon! It is a surprise, but the title unveils why. Mercedes partners the Maybach once again. This time the high-end luxury upgrades are done for the largest SUV in the lineup. Fun fact: the GLS is using a unibody platform. Still, it doesn’t harm the performance of the luxury SUV. A 4.0-liter biturbo V8 can deliver 550 hp. The top of the range AMG model can do even more, but the 2024 Mercedes Maybach GLS is not maximizing the outputs. The SUV needs 4.8 seconds for the 0-60 mph sprint.
Of course, there are a lot of reminders that this is the Maybach tuning. Well, the first one is the price. The 2024 Mercedes GLS Maybach costs $165k. Compared to the AMG, that is nearly $30,000 higher. The package also includes a set of 22-inch wheels, a 12.3-in infotainment system, rear-seat displays, premium audio by Burmester, and a panoramic glass roof. Genuine leather wraps seats, which also offer heating, ventilating, and massaging functions. The seating capacity is reduced to four.
2024 Mercedes-Benz G-Class – $160,000
For a long time, the G-Wagon was out of sight for all other SUVs with a tri-point star badge. Now, with the arrival of the Maybach package for the GLS, it is strange not to talk about the 2024 Mercedes-Benz G-Class as the most expensive SUV in the lineup. Well, with some advanced upgrades, the G-Class can cost $180,000. But, in the standard form, the MSRP is $160k for the AMG 63 model. You can find the entry-level package for $135,000.
The boxy look seems to be outdated. Yes, it harms overall performance due to unaesthetic styling. But, the 2024 Mercedes-Benz G-Class can still perform well thanks to the numerous upgrades. It is also the best off-roader in the company, mostly thanks to the body-on-frame platform. Experts believe at some point, the same architecture will underpin the future Mercedes truck. But, for now, the X-Class was a failure. In the company’s defense – there were not too many Mercedes trademark touches inside the pickup.
2024 Maserati Levante Trofeo – $155,000
Maserati is another famous Italian company that tries to take advantage of the current SUV bandwagon. The Levante is quite a popular model, mostly thanks to an approachable base price of $80,000. Well, a V6 and 345 hp is not something you want from the luxury SUV. The 2024 Maserati Levante Trofeo is there to impress everyone. The main upgrade is the V8 engine with 570 hp. Now the SUV becomes a more serious contender.
Maserati packs the Trofeo package with performance tires and 22-inch rims. This version is also darker than others, thanks to the special appearance bundle. Also, the hood looks different, adding more aggressive styling. Red accents on side vents make the 2024 Levante Trofeo sportier. The front seats are ventilated, and B&W delivers an ultimate sound system with 17 speakers.
2024 Cadillac Escalade-V – $153,000
The V Series is the top upgrade for Cadillac vehicles. Sedans used this package to draw more buyers looking for a sportier ride and extra power. Now, the 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V is becoming a reality. The SUV is already one of the most exclusive options in the market. Now, the V Series improves performance and make the Escalade competitive with German luxury SUVs. It is also the largest vehicle on this list.
To provide enough power for the high-end version, engineers are using a 6.2-l supercharged V8 plant that cracks 682 hp and 653 lb-ft. It is still behind the famous Hellcat engine and its 700+ ponies, now available for Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Dodge Durango. Still, the Escalade V Series becomes the most expensive American SUV with a price tag of $153k.
2024 BMW Alpina XB7 – $150,000
The final SUV that is being sold for more than $150k is the 2024 BMW Alpina XB7. Like Mercedes, another German carmaker used the special package for the full-size SUV. Instead of the M Performance package, Alpina is making the X7 more exclusive. Another comparison to the GLS – the BMW X7 is using ladder frame, making it more capable for off-road driving. But, when you pack it with premium options, you will want to stay on the asphalt.
The 2024 BMW Alpina XB7 is actually the X7 M. The SUV uses the most powerful configuration that cracks 621 horsepower. A 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 also produces 590 pound-feet of torque. The acceleration time of 4.1 seconds is not bad having in mind the size and weight of the vehicle. The company offers the best features, such as optional 23-inch wheels, a panoramic roof, captain’s chairs for the second row, and advanced safety measures.
