Given the abundance of luxury SUVs rolling on American roads, it becomes a challenge to recall the time, decades ago, when the Range Rover was actually the only luxury SUV on the market. As interest in SUVs has grown exponentially, the premium end of the market has increased as well, with nearly every luxury automaker offering an SUV, including Bentley, Aston Martin, Maserati and Rolls-Royce. Even exotic carmaker Lamborghini has an SUV, with Ferrari soon to follow. Let’s look at the top luxury SUVs costing more than $100,000 — ordered by starting price — available today.
