Though nearly every manufacturer is making an SUV of some sort, very few have had the know-how and the ability to make a true performance SUV. That hasn’t stopped many from trying. Rolls-Royce thinks they have something worthy of the title with the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, but Lamborghini is here to put them in their place with the new Urus, a vehicle so fast that Lamborghini calls it an SSUV or Super Sport Utility Vehicle. Let’s see how these two models compare with our Lamborghini Urus vs Rolls-Royce Cullinan comparison.
We’ll look at performance, top speed, weight, and more, as we explore these two vehicles in our comparison below, but if you already know that you want a Lamborghini Urus or even another Lamborghini model in the Austin, TX area, then you should see what Lamborghini Austin has to offer by clicking the link here.
The Cullinan is the first Rolls-Royce SUV ever made, and that has presented a problem. Namely, Rolls-Royce doesn’t have any experience building SUVs. In fact, when they set out to build the Cullinan, instead of building an SUV platform to manage it, they just modified the Phantom. That’s why this SUV is stuck with a less powerful engine and why it is heavier all around. It isn’t really an SUV. It’s a Phantom with an SUV body.
The Urus is not the first SUV built by Lamborghini. That honor would go to the LM002 from decades ago. Though it may look like the Urus could just be sitting on an Aventador platform, especially with the low weight, that wouldn’t make sense, as the Aventador is mid-engine, and the Urus is front-engine.
Instead of being built on the platform of a car, Lamborghini set out to make a true Super Sport Utility Vehicle. As such, they took a real SUV platform, modified it with reinforced carbon fiber, and came up with a vehicle that accelerates like a supercar, handles like a racecar, and can go to places that only a true SUV can go.
