Rolls-Royce reveals its first SUV

10 May 2018

SUV's just weren't popular in Europe 20 years ago. A single image of the brand's first ever SUV has surfaced online, revealing the complete front fascia of the "All-Terrain, High Sided" model, as the company calls it.

Rolls-Royce vehicles boast of many outstanding features. Claimed to be tested to destruction all over the planet, Cullinan sports off-roading capabilities with "Magic Carpet Ride", which delivers off-road enjoyment without sacrificing any Rolls-Royce on-road behaviour, thanks to the latest-gen self-levelling air suspension. Rather than a multitude of driving modes, there's just one "Everywhere" button to press; this prepares the auto for off-road driving, automatically adjusting its systems for whichever surface it detects. The cargo area can swallow 19 cubic feet with the parcel shelf in place and rear seatbacks up, 21 cubic feet without the shelf, and 68 cubic feet with the cargo floor raised and the rear seats folded. According to the company, the Cullinan is the most practical Rolls ever. The Lounge Seat consists of a rear bench seat, while Individual Seats include two seats separated by a Fixed Rear Centre Console incorporating a drinks cabinet. The D-shaped tail lights, too, are unmistakably Rolls. Rolls-Royce had an early history of go-everywhere ability which began during the period of the Maharajahs and Maharanis of India and was cemented with armoured models during World War I. The center screen now responds to touch, but can also be controlled by the Spirit of Ecstasy controller that's been moved from the armrest pull-out to the center tunnel.

"Cullinan is luxury in its purest form blended with flawless practicality and off-road capability", says Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Other assistance and safety features include night vision, a four-camera display system that creates a panoramic view of the vehicle, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and automatic emergency braking. In another nod to modernity, there are five USB slots around the cabin, along with wireless charging for smartphones in the front.

The first Rolls Royce SUV is expected to come in at $320,000.

Owners of these majestic cars rarely drive them - the chauffeur or butler does.

The setup includes a re-engineered version of the RR air suspension system, with larger air struts to cope with rough terrain and a redesigned font axle suspension too. The Cullinan is 140mm longer than the longest Range Rover and at full height is 1836mm tall on its 22-inch wheels. The transmission is the silken, imperceptible ZF eight-speed automatic, satellite-aided in the Cullinan (as in other Rolls products), so it knows which gear to select for the corner ahead before it actually gets there. But now the official reveal has happened, so say hello to the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Owners likely won't be concerned with running costs, but an official rating of 18.8mpg and 341g/km of Carbon dioxide emissions mean that fuel and tax bills will be very high. Rolls-Royce wanted to give the Cullinan a strong bottom-end, and it has tuned the V12 to produce all its torque from as low as 1,600rpm.
