Rolls-Royce Cullinan, The World’s Most Luxurious SUV

New-Rolls-Royce-Cullinan-SUV

You knew it would happen, and it has. There is now a Rolls-Royce SUV.

Named after the the world’s largest diamond, the Cullinan is Rolls-Royce’s answer to the Bentley Bentyga and is billed as the the first “three box” car in the SUV sector. The company describes it as more of a “high-bodied car” than a traditional SUV.

The Cullinan looks as expected of a Rolls-Royce SUV, adopting the same design theme as the Rolls-Royce Phantom and featuring a long hood with the Spirit of Ecstasy proudly perched atop it. It’s not the most exciting-looking SUV, but it has a pronounced presence that cannot be denied.

Rolls-Royce’s SUV is based on an aluminum spaceframe architecture and measures 210-inches in length, a full 8-inches longer than the Bentley Bentayga. Inside, there is a smaller steering wheel than in other Roll-Royce models (interestingly, the Cullinan is positioned more as a driver’s car) and the big, upright dash features acres of wood and leather befitting of a Rolls-Royce.

Like the Phantom, the rear doors are rear-hinged for an added touch of class.

The 5,864-pound (2660 kg) Cullinan will have no issues getting going. Its large 6.75-liter V12 engine produces 563 horsepower and 627 lb-ft. of torque that’s divided between all four wheels via a new all-wheel drive system. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (249.5 k/h).

To make sure occupants benefit from Rolls-Royce’s magic carpet-like ride even over rough off-road surfaces, engineers equipped it with a self-leveling air suspension that, in off-road mode, can actively push down any wheel that it detects is losing traction.

So, how much will the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan cost you? Some $325,000 to start if you’re in the United States, making it the most expensive SUV on the market. Do you want one?
