#4 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Custom 6X6
The2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Custom 6X6 unrivaled features have earned it its nickname 'Inferno' from jeepers. This sporty and aggressive-looking limited red shade 6X6 jeep is powered by a Dodge Hellcat supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces around 707hp and 650 ft/lbs of torque backed up by an automatic transmission.
This true off-road jeep has an in-built 5-inch lift kit, rough country shocks, and 35-inch off-road tires mounted meticulously on custom 20×12.5-inch to provide a jeep enthusiast with a hitch-free and high-performance off-road experience. During the Northeast Auction in 2018, this 6X6 jeep became one of the most expensive jeeps to be ever made and resold.
2 2005 Jeep Hurricane
Performing a 'crab-steer' is at least on the top do to list for most experienced jeep drivers while on the off-road. The Chrysler’s patented 4-wheeler independent steering system fitted on the 2005 Jeep Hurricane would have made this fantasy become a reality if this concept car had been mass-produced.
It was designed by Aaron Pizzuti in 2005 and showcased in the same year at the North American International Auto Show. The 2005 Jeep Hurricane is powered by 2 identical 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engines which both cumulatively produce an output of 670hp.
This jeep's lightweight and durability are attributed to its single-piece construction, which is made by the use of premium carbon fiber. It also has the ability to completely turn itself around!
Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited
Only produced in 1998, this car was a more powerful, rare version of the standard Limited offered at the time. It was powered by a V8 5.9-liter engine capable of 245 hp and 345 lb-ft of torque. The vehicle could accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in seven seconds.
This may not seem impressive by today’s standards, but the 5.9 Limited was considered the fastest SUV in the late ’90s. It was also made with more luxury components, including woodgrain accents, leather seats, and five-star wheels. Less than 15,000 were ever made; each retailed for $50,000.
9) Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT (WK2), 2013
This fourth-generation mid-size luxury crossover SUV isn’t your typical Jeep. Unveiled at the 2009 New York Auto Show the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT was made for style. Despite its elegant appearance, the SRT won 30 awards for its off-road capabilities. The SRT is equipped with a luxurious interior that includes real wood accents, state of the art electronics and leather trim. Though it has a more modern look, the SRT still retains its classic Jeep stylings. Highly reviewed and seen as best in class, there’s a reason that the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is so expensive.Image credit: Mtxchevy / Wikimedia
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
The SRT8 line continued with its tradition of luxury and innovation through the years, and the 2012 model was another standout for Jeep.
The 2012 SRT8 model featured many of the same exterior and interior styling elements of the previous models, losing none of the sophistication for which the model was known. A few more technological bells and whistles were added to the interior, creating a more comfortable ride and offering more convenience features.
However, where the 2012 SRT8 model really stood out was its powerful engine. In fact, the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 was considered to be the most powerful Jeep ever built.
The 2012 SRT8 model has a 6.4-liter, HEMI V8 engine with 465 horsepower. It can go from 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds, and it reaches top speeds of 155 mph. While those numbers are not significantly different from the 2006 model, even incremental changes can make a huge difference in the way a vehicle handles when you are behind the wheel. Lucky owners felt that power, earning this special edition a place as one of the most sought after and expensive Jeep models.
The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 sold for $120,000.
Jeep Hurricane Concept
The Jeep Hurricane was introduced as a concept vehicle at the 2005 North American International Auto Show, but it was never produced for commercial sale. The unique design looked more like a mashup of a Jeep and a monster truck than anything you would see when looking for Jeeps for sale at your local dealership.
The Jeep Hurricane features a one-piece body made of carbon fiber, a strong yet lightweight material that allows for improved performance yet lower fuel consumption. The body is connected to the chassis by an aluminum spine.
Like other Jeeps, the Hurricane has no side doors. Unlike other Jeeps, it also doesn’t have a roof. Clearly, this is a car for fun off-roading, not for long-distance or everyday driving.
The Jeep Hurricane has a 5.7-liter, 8-cylinder HEMI engine that has 670 horsepower. It can go from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds, and it reaches top speeds of 155 mph.
Though it was never produced for commercial sale, the Jeep Hurricane won an IDEA Silver Award and a “Best of What’s New” award from Popular Science.
The car sold for $2 million, making it the most expensive Jeep of all time.
While you likely won’t find any of these Jeeps for sale at your local Jeep dealership, you will find a lot of the same design that went into their styling and their automotive technology. You may not get the exact same features, but you can enjoy a luxurious ride in a powerful Jeep, making you feel like a million bucks — even if you didn’t have to spend that much.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X
Reaching 100km in 8.6 seconds, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X has a lot going for it. It costs more than a regular Jeep of this kind and that’s mostly down to the optimised V6 engine. Extra care and craftsmanship has gone into the interiors of this model as well, making it a comfortable and enjoyable ride for all. There’s a lot to like about this car.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk remains one of the most highly praised Jeep models on the market today. The recent 2020 model received some rave reviews and it’s not hard to see why. The technology it employs is cutting edge, it has good off-road capabilities and a supercharged V8 engine. It costs around $87,000 but you definitely get what you pay for.
So, if you’re looking to spend big, these are the Jeep models you might want to look at. But if you’re going to get your hands on a Jeep Hurricane Concept car, spending big will be a bit of an understatement. There are lots of very affordable Jeep models out there too though, so don’t be put off from purchasing.
The Jeep has been giving offroad aficionados a sturdy vehicle of choice for decades. While the cars on this list may not be ideal for affordability, they have the durability and luxury features that justify being the most expensive Jeeps in the world.
