Sportiest Utility Vehicles

Jeep Trackhawk
Starting MSRP: $70,000 – $80,000 (est.)
To start, we have a 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 in all its Hellcat glory — without the fiery kitty name. The Jeep Trackhawk is the most powerful and, with its scalding 3.5-second zero-to-60-mph time, the second-quickest ride on this list. It puts the power down like no other. Similar to its wheelie-popping cousin — the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon — the Jeep uses a launch-control system dubbed Torque Reserve that momentarily limits torque before the driver releases the brake . . . and powers to an 11.6-second quarter mile at 116 mph. The Jeep features Select-Trac AWD with five modes to dial up the grip. When it comes to its more luxury-minded competitors, the Trackhawk is a less frills, more thrills proposition — making it our favorite sporty utility.
