If you have to ask how much the Rolls-Royce Cullinan costs, well, that’ll be $420,000 for the fully loaded version in the U.S., or about $100,000 less for the entry-level model. But if you’re shopping for a Cullinan, the term “entry-level” probably don’t exist in your vocabulary.
Anyhow, in return for that princely sum, clients will be able to park a Rolls-Royce SUV next to their Phantoms, Wraiths and/or other luxury cars found in their garage.
The Cullinan is offered with 4 or 5 seats, has a couple of extra seats that slide out of the boot area, is fitted with buttons that automatically close the doors enveloping users in British luxury, and it’s extremely comfortable. It’s also long and wide and pretty much hovers over the usual road imperfections, telling drivers not to worry about them, yet still has good body control.
Driving the first-ever Rolls SUV is a smooth and calm experience. Even the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 is quiet and, most of the time, you won’t even hear it. Push the throttle down, and you’ll enjoy 563 horsepower (571 PS / 420 kW) and 627 pound-feet (850 Nm) of torque, with the latter kicking in from 1,600 rpm.
As refined as it may be, the Cullinan is not perfect. Cars took one out for a short drive and said that some of the things don’t make users feel special, such as the key fob, which is not the jewel you’d expect in such a car. For the rest of their remarks, we’re going to invite you to check out the review that follows right after the break.
