One of the most powerful diesel SUVs ever sold in the States, the twin-turbo V-10 VW Touareg, comes in a surprisingly plain wrapper. It doesn’t elicit much excitement with other engine options, but it burns both oil and rubber with the 5.0-liter V-10 under the bonnet. If you live in one of the 45 states where the diesel Touareg is sold, 310 horsepower, 553 lb-ft of torque, and big-rig sound effects are your pleasure. VW towed a 747 jumbo jet with one to prove its point, so you shouldn’t have trouble towing that abandoned tanker full of diesel back to the compound. It’s also among the quicker SUVs extant, keeping up with a Porsche Cayenne S through the quarter-mile.
