Here are some SUVs weigh more
The SUV has never been famous for the stunning aerodynamics, power, agility, handling etc. But times are changing. Many crossovers and SUVs in our days can easily compete with the modern cars. But there is one option which SUV to overcome very difficult. We are talking about weight. Unfortunately, even the most expensive and stunning SUVs weigh significantly more than passenger cars. The reason of course is their size, which will eventually become more and more. We have selected for you the most difficult modern crossovers and SUVs. In order to make it more interesting, we’ll start from smallest to largest.
16) Volvo XC90 T8 AWD (2 343 kg)
We start with the new generation Volvo XC90, which has increased substantially in size in comparison with the predecessor. For example, almost 5 meter XC90 weighs 2.3 tons. So in spite of modern technology and aerodynamic body do not expect that the new crossover will consume fuel like a moped. Nevertheless, we are talking about a hybrid version, which weighs a lot due to the battery and electric motor. So to save fuel you actually get. Unfortunately, in the Russian market, this model is not available for purchase.
15) Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid (2 350 kg)
Another heavy crossover also owes its weight of a hybrid power-plant. But thanks to the hybrid motor, the powerful Porsche Cayenne consumes, as stated by the manufacturer only 3.4 litres per 100 km. you will Agree that in this case the weight of the machine is not important.
14) BMW X5 M (2 350 kg)
Just as the Porsche Cayenne hybrid, weighs in at a powerful BMW X5 M which is equipped with a large V8 engine. This crossover not only weighs a lot but is ready to amaze with their value.
13) Mitsubishi Pajero 5-door (2 385 kg)
The five-door Pajero is a great SUV, which for years has been produced by the company Mitsubishi. It’s the heaviest among all SUV manufactured by the Japanese brand models. So, the weight of the 3.2 litre model is more than 2.3 tone.
12) Tesla Model X (2 389 kg)
Battery for any car is always a heavy burden and of course the additional load. But not for Tesla, who from the beginning surprised by its dynamics of dispersal, which can only be equaled by expensive supercars.
However, our current rating is dedicated to the heaviest SUVs and crossovers shall include the new crossover Tesla Model X 90D, model weighs 2.4 tons mainly due to the large battery.
Most likely the model 100D will weigh even more. Unfortunately, we don’t have specs on this crossover version of the Tesla.
11) Jeep Grand Cherokee 6,4 SRT V8 (2 418 kg)
Jeep Grand Cherokee 6,4 SRT V8 is not only the most powerful SUV of the brand, but is also the heaviest. So, a 468-horsepower Grand Cherokee 6,4 SRT V8 weighs 2.4 tons, which allowed him to take in our ranking of 11th place.
10) Bentley Bentayga (2422 kg)
Bentley SUV Bentayga which is the length of 5.14 metres and comes with a gigantic six litre V12 engine. Many probably expected to see this model in the top of the standings, because you might think that with such a large motor the car has any weigh very much. Yes, the Bentley SUV Bentayga naturally made our list but as you can see not TOP.
The fact that this model is based on the same platform as the new generation Audi Q7 (MLB Evo architecture). The new platform has allowed engineers to achieve substantial weight loss in Q7. It is logical that the Bentley Bentayga also has similar weight, which is 2.4 tons.
9) Range Rover Sport SDV8 is a 4.4 (2 434 kg)
Range Rover Sport 30 centimetres shorter than the Bentley Bentayga and much weaker. In the British SUV comes with a 4.4-liter 339-strong V8 motor. But what is most surprising is that the Range Rover Sport weighs a little more, even super expensive Bentley Bentayga.
8) Mercedes GL 500 4Matic x (2 465 kg)
The successor of the ML-class is also present in our ranking of heavy SUVs. The heaviest version of the Mercedes GLE is a hybrid modification. As we have said, blame the battery, which powers the electric motor. Even if you use lithium instead of lead elements,s manufacturers still are not able to reduce the weight of the batteries. In the end, as a rule, all hybrid vehicles weigh considerably more than their traditional counterparts.
7) Audi Q7 e-Tron (2 520 kg)
The second generation Audi Q7 as we have said significantly lost weight compared to the debut model. But this is not about a hybrid version. The reason the motor and the battery.

These SUVs, the length of which is nearly 5.1 metres, surprising not only for its size, but also can boast of its reliability, power and maneuverability. But for the size and off-road technology cars pay curb weight, which is 2.5 tons.

1) Mercedes G 500 4×42 (3 021 kg)
We wrote about the fact that the diesel G-class is the heaviest in its class in the model range of Mercedes. But why, then, the Mercedes G 500 4×42 is the first line in our Top? The fact is that we are talking about completely different model, which explicitly does not apply to G-class. G 500 4×42 is a completely different car and a different story. So it is in the list a separate line.
