Last year saw the Bentley Bentayga ceded its place as the most expensive SUV in the world. Its compatriot, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, took over with its $370,500 CAD price tag. That’s a hefty sum, but rave reviews and impressive sales numbers confirm the SUV is worth every penny. Here’s what makes the Cullinan so special.
The Cullinan at a glance
The four-wheel drive Cullinan is built to offer a smooth ride both in the city and off-road. It has a sleek, elegant appearance that stays true to the Rolls-Royce esthetic. Here’s a brief rundown of its specs:
- Size. It has a wheelbase of 330 cm and weighs a whopping 6,000 lbs. Compare that with the Cadillac Escalade, which has a 295-cm wheelbase and weighs in at 5855 lbs.
- Speed. Despite its size, the Cullinan is anything but sluggish. With its twin-turbo V12 engine (the same one that propels the Phantom) and its 563 horsepower, it can reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.8 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h.
- Safety. The Cullinan has an extensive safety suite, which includes adaptive cruise control, night vision and vision assist. It also includes lane change, lane departure, collision, cross-traffic, wildlife and pedestrian detection warning systems. Moreover, it’s equipped with four cameras and a high-resolution head-up display to allow for complete awareness of what’s happening on the road.
- Cargo room. The Cullinan is eminently spacious. It has 600 litres of cargo space behind the rear seats. These can fold down electronically to open up an additional 1286 litres of storage space.
There are a ton of customizable features. The Cullinan can seat five people or, alternatively, four, with the middle seat substituted for a console. In true Rolls-Royce style, the console contains a refrigerator, drink cabinet and whiskey glasses.
The base model comes with 32 exterior colour options, 21 interior colour options, eight different wood trims and five distinct wheel designs.
The range of customizable features is truly exceptional. Serious drivers and collectors alike are guaranteed to be able to design their dream car.
