Best In Class: Factory Power Runner

Winner: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
Runner-Up:
Ford FX2 SuperCab

We love the idea of being able to go fast while carrying cargo, and there are two awesome vehicles in this category that'll achieve both without making you broke in the process. The Grand Cherokee SRT8 is powered by a 470-hp, 6.4-liter V-8, and hits 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Our runner-up is new to the category; the FX2 F-150 is about as close as you can get to a modern-day Lightning. A rear-drive pickup with 411 horsepower and 11,300 pounds of towing capacity sounds pretty good!
