Drag race: Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT vs Lamborghini Urus vs Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk vs BMW X6 M vs Tesla Model X Performance

September 25, 2021 by

High-performance SUVs are some of the most bonkers machines on the planet — but which is the most ludicrous of them all?

Well, that’s what today’s drag race looks to answer, lining up the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, Lamborghini Urus, Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, BMW X6 M and Tesla Model X Performance.

Powering the Cayenne is a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 sending 640hp and 850Nm of torque to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox — in a car weighing 2,220kg.

The not-too-distant Lamborghini Urus uses pretty much the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, but with 650hp and 850Nm of torque. It too kicks power to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox and is the lightest at 2,197kg.

Over from across the pond is the Jeep, with a monstrous 6.2-litre supercharged V8 producing 707hp and 875Nm of torque. Just like the two before it, it puts power down to an all-wheel-drive system through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It’s one of the heaviest today at 2,433kg.

The last of the internal combustion-engined competitors today is the BMW X6 M, with a 4.2-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet. It sends 625hp and 750Nm to, you guessed it, an all-wheel-drive system via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It weighs in at 2,395kg.

Last, but perhaps not literally, is the Tesla Model X Performance. It uses two electric motors — one on each axle — producing 780hp and 1,140Nm. It’s the heaviest car here though, coming in at 2,485kg.

Which of these SUVs triumphs today? Well, you’ll need to watch to find out…
