Leaving the beaten path in an SUV that starts at $325,000, such as the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, really takes some courage.
But beneath the bold design and luxury amenities, this is an SUV. And in addition to being a very comfortable cruiser, it’s also capable of taking on some challenges thrown by Mother Nature.
For the unique experience, CNN traveled to the Snow King Mountain in Wyoming, where they were blown away by the versatility of the Cullinan. Rolls-Royce’s first-ever SUV doesn’t lack confidence, regardless if it’s in the French Riviera or on a steep mountain trail, and that shows that it’s not just a raised Phantom.
After getting his breath back, the reviewer did find some flaws with the Cullinan, whose cabin is apparently not that well insulated from the outside world compared to the Ghost or the Phantom. And in the end, that’s what the Rolls-Royce essence is, in addition to the magic carpet ride, ultimate luxury and refinement.
By common standards, this is a vehicle that’s simply outstanding from many angles, but by Rolls-Royce standards, it’s not quite there.
That won’t stop it from becoming a moneymaker for the company. But, even though it’s the world’s most expensive SUV, it’s still missing that Rolls trademark cocooning luxury feeling.
