Rolls-Royce Cullinan Boldly Goes Where No Rolls Has Gone Before

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.

    There is no way I would go ‘off roading’ in my new Cullinan.

      • Craig

        Hey. HEY! No one makes ‘cheep cheep’ sounds at ME and gets away with it!

          • Craig

            My mother says I’m real. So there.

    • Smith

      Exactly, then why would you buy one. Makes no sense to have your driver take you off road.

      • Craig

        He’s very well paid. He’s doesn’t mind!

  • TheAmerican

    LOL CNN

        another right wing troll. Maybe he’s Russian

      • Smith

        Yes, and unfortunately, Rolls Royce has lowered itself so low that it is now just one of them!

  • benT

    THIS would be the best reason to buy one.

  • Bash

    No one cares.

  • TheBelltower

    The grille looks goofy on this thing. Particularly as it drives along trails.

    • Smith

      The vehicle looks goofy driving along trails. This is supposed to be the height of luxury and does not ever need to go off road. Disgusting.

  • Smith

    “Rolls-Royce Cullinan Boldly Goes Where No Rolls Has Gone Before” … or every should go. This is such a disgusting insult to the Rolls Royce brand, by the Germans who do not respect the brand and do not deserve to own it. Horrible in so many ways.

    • Knotmyrealname

      This car is wrong.
      It should have just stayed as a bad idea.

  • haji

    On stock on-road tires. Yeah big deal.

  • Bill Nguyen

    Is it just me or does it not look wide enough? Looks too upright and narrow to me, just a bit awkward.
