The first-of-its-kind 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV

2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV – How’s the overall feel?

Before we get to the highlights of the notable details, our general comment is;

The new SUV is based on the Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII’s expanded platform version tagged the “Architecture of Luxury” which is an aluminium spaceframe that houses the brand’s first-ever all-wheel-drive powertrain.

The Cullinan’s 6.75L twin-turbocharged V12 engine is yet another familiar component as it delivers a nice 637 pound-foot of peak torque even at low RPMs like 1,600; while still at a 563hp.

The new SUV does have some really good level of off-road capabilities but one should not expect something like the complex type of Terrain Response Settings that is present in the Range Rover SUVs. The Cullinan only features one drive mode which is named “Offroad”, and this mode usually elevates the vehicle’s air suspension, helps stiffen the overall ride and then makes sure that the vehicle’s wheels are well pushed earthward in case contact is lost along the line.

The throttle response of the 2019 Cullinan is noticeably softened, and its traction control is also less restrictive somehow but this call is totally disabled if one doesn’t like it.
