Traditionally, pickup trucks and SUVs have never been about speed. The pickups were work trucks that helped move goods and services along the distribution chain while the SUV was conceived as a family vehicle; something for a school run or trip to the shopping mall. However, advancements in automotive technology have expanded the scope of these vehicles to include performance.
Today, they pack enough horsepower and supporting technology that results in blistering performance as far as acceleration and speed are concerned. The examples featured here take performance to the extreme and have enough grunt to spring surprises on the smug sports car owner on the highway.
