The Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV will be revealed on May 10, 2018 and it will be an exclusive online reveal only. The Cullinan is the first all-terrain vehicle from the iconic British luxury car manufacturer and so is a big deal.
As the folks at Rolls-Royce say, the Cullinan SUV is an “all-terrain, high-sided vehicle” and will be offered with all-wheel Drive, more for performance needs than serious off-roading. The styling is in-line with the Phantom, but is a lot more aggressive and is obviously more imposing as well, given the dimensions. The trademark grille with vertical chrome slats stay true to the Rolls-Royce family, while the raised hood and sharp fenders add to the stance of the SUV. The overall design remains angular on the Cullinan while the rear does see a slightly receding roof-line in a bid to give the luxury SUV a less boxy appearance.
The Cullinan is not only the company’s first SUV, ever; but is also based on the newly developed aluminium spaceframe platform that will underpin the next generation Phantom and all models that are introduced further on. Power options will include a revised version of the 6.75-litre V12 on the Cullinan when it goes on sale in 2018, while reports also suggest that a hybrid and all-electric version are also set to join the power train line-up in the future.
That said, the Cullinan will be a true Rolls-Royce featuring a host of bespoke customisation options, not to mention some very expensive accessories as well. Expect the ride quality to be as pliant as that on the Phantom and a lot of that will be courtesy of the all-wheel drive suspension system that will feature on the model. Of course an India launch is on the cards and we will tell you more about it soon.
