The New Rolls-Royce SUV Could Look Like This

5

Rolls-Royce is developing an SUV that it calls “Project Cullinan,” and we have new renders showing what that high-riding luxury machine could look like. 

This big luxury cruiser will be looking to take on the new Bentley Bentayga and the Range Rover SVAutobiography, two of the world’s most expensive and luxurious SUVs. These renders suggest that Rolls-Royce will keep its styling fairly similar to what is seen on its cars today, not a surprising move considering that vehicles from Rolls-Royce are so iconic.

Rolls-Royce calls its SUV a “high-sided, all-terrain motor car,” and when it debuts it will do so riding on an all-new platform from the brand that was developed separately from parent company BMW. In the future, more Rolls-Royce vehicles will be based on this new aluminum-intensive architecture.

All-new suspension and all-wheel drive systems are being developed for the new SUV as well so that it can deliver the hallmark “magic carpet ride” that Rolls-Royce is known for.

Powering the new SUV will likely be the same 6.8-liter V12 found in the Rolls-Royce Phantom, though a plug-in hybrid powertrain is also a possibility.

The new all-terrain motor car from Rolls-Royce is expected to launch in 2017.

  • Now this looks interesting. Rolls-Royce introducing an SUV would stir up the luxury SUV market. Competition between Bentley and Ranger Rover will now be a three-way battle, with an iconic brand like Rolls-Royce entering these terrains. The winners in this segment would surely be the customers, making the most of this iconic competition.
