The off-road and on-road capabilities of the Jeep are obvious for all to see. The company is known for some of the best and most capable off-road vehicles in history. Its go-anywhere pedigree is exemplified in all its SUVs and a pick-up.
From the popular Cherokee and Grand Cherokee to the new Gladiator, Jeep continues to steal the thunder with vehicles with highly desirable features. While some models like the CJ5 are very affordable, not all Jeeps are particularly so. Here are the most expensive jeeps in the world.
9/9 Hurricane Concept – $2 million
Unveiled at the 2005 North American International Show in Detroit, this customized concept car took home the IDEA Silver award. It featured some of the most advanced technology on the automotive market.
Thanks to its outstanding climbing ability and magnificent steering capabilities, it does not come cheap. This “Super Jeep” has extreme off-road capabilities and can completely turn around, meaning it is truly no ordinary vehicle. And it costs $2 million.
8/9 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT WK2 – $130,000
Retaining the classic Jeep style with a touch of modern bodywork, this multi-award winning vehicle is an absolute masterpiece. The car has received no less than 30 awards for being among the best vehicles for off-road travel, luxury, best in class and safety.
Being the most awarded SUV ever means it doesn’t come cheap. It is parting with a reasonable amount of money, at least $130,000. The vehicle comes with increased aerodynamic efficiency and sheer robustness, high durability and reduced noise vibrations.
7/9 2012-2016 Grand Cherokee SRT8 – $120,000
This amazing off-road monster can increase the density with its compressor. With an intercool boost system, the vehicle can pump its V8 to huge power figures.
The Grand Cherokee SRT8 has a beautiful exterior and an elegant Sarona Design body. It has a top speed of 155 mph and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds. This ultimate performance vehicle is a world-class SUV and embodies luxury and utility, which explains why it costs north of $100,000.
6/9 2006 Grand Cherokee SRT8 – $80,000
The 2006 Grand Cherokee SRT8 is built with Street and Racing Technology and features a redesigned all-wheel drive system. Its commanding presence on the road is orchestrated by a solid front axle and a beefier rear with a Dana 44 differential. Its lower ride height, stiffer springs, Bilstein dampers and larger anti-roll bars make for rock-solid handling.
The SUV comes with a 6.1-liter V8 engine with 420 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in under 5 seconds. It’s a great performer on the road, and few vehicles are faster out of the blocks.
5/9 2010 Grand Cherokee WK2 – $70,000
The 2010 Grand Cherokee WK2 is a mid-size SUV that was introduced in the spring of 2010 and is one of the safest cars on the planet. The model is available in two types of engines. The 3.6-liter V6 VVT engine has an electronic stop. The engine can produce up to 290 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re looking for extra power and extra towing capacity, the 5.7-liter Hemi VVT engine will undoubtedly suit them. The vehicle can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7.7 seconds and has a top speed of 147 mph.
4/9 Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited – $50,000
This vintage model enhances the performance of Jeep SUVs in a sparkling way. The 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque is a great choice for someone who would occasionally like to haul heavy loads. Before the unveiling of the SRT8, the Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited occupied the top spot for being the most powerful Jeep.
This model paved the way for future Grand Cherokees, and if it wasn’t for it; SRT Grand Cherokees may not exist. The 4-speed automatic transmission is only available in 4X4 specification and has a computerized four-wheel drive.
3/9 Wrangler Rubicon X – $37,000
This more advanced edition of the Wrangler X is an absolute stunner. Thanks to its black front grill and the double intake Power Dome hood, the Rubicon is distinguishable. In addition, it has a deep-tinted sun visor, a body-colored spare tire cover and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
Its interior houses black or red leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. It also has slush floor mats that carry a Mopar tread pattern and silver accents. Its 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine generates 200 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque.
2/9 Wrangler Unlimited Dragon – $36,595
The Wrangler Unlimited began life as a concept car at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show and received overwhelming love that forced Jeep to begin production in 2013.
Producing a good amount of power from its 3.6-liter Pentastar engine, this springy vehicle has a steering and braking system enhanced for off-road superiority but isn’t necessarily terrible on-road either. Some drivers find the driving position particularly odd, but it’s certainly not the most uncomfortable vehicle in the world.
1/9 Wrangler Unlimited Height – $35,695
The Wrangler Unlimited is a fan favorite for drivers looking for all things great in a vehicle. Jeep builds this vehicle with heavy-duty suspension, a hardtop roof, and headlight inserts. The black front grill makes it extra attractive, and the circling ball steering makes it fun to drive.
Under the hood is a 3.6-liter V6 mated to an eight-speed transmission to generate 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The large 18-inch alloy wheels are perfect for off-road adventures.
