The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is the luxury automaker’s first all-terrain SUV, making it possible for owners to enjoy off-road travel in a luxurious vehicle. The Cullinan uses the same architecture as in the Phantom, a bespoke aluminum space frame that is highly versatile. The Cullinan is taller yet shorter than the Phantom. It also features a revised air suspension that is beefier.
As an SUV, the luxurious Rolls-Royce Cullinan is designed to take you to your destination no matter what is in the way. Between the aluminum super-frame and the advanced chassis technology, it can handle any weather condition or terrain. To prove the capabilities of this luxury SUV, Rolls-Royce drove the Cullinan through tough terrain in three continents, over 12,000 miles that include deserts, highlands, mountains, and more.
The Cullinan gets 18.8 mpg while the aluminum spaceframe delivers ride comfort and unparalleled driving experience. The self-leveling air suspension makes millions of calculations each second, adjusting to camera intelligence, steering cues, and acceleration. When you want to go off the road, hit the off-road button. This will engage all-wheel drive actively, so all four wheels receive uninterrupted torque for performance you can trust on any terrain. The suspension will also raise 40 mm, and the responses of both the acceleration and brakes will adapt with this setting. You can further adjust the off-roading setting to optimize performance.
The exterior of the Cullinan includes the signature features you have come to expect from a Rolls-Royce. From iconic motifs to coach doors to the hood ornament, this vehicle is clearly a Rolls-Royce. It also features the iconic Rolls-Royce grille and an integrated umbrella.
Rolls-Royce shows off its creativity with the Cullinan with features like the Viewing Suite. Press one button and two leather seats plus a cocktail table will appear by the tailgate. This is also the only SUV to offer a separate passenger environment via the partition glass. The rear cabin is fully sealed from the luggage zones, so you get perfect climate control and sound insulation.
It should come as no surprise that the Cullinan is loaded with luxury and innovative features. The rear of the Cullinan offers lounge seating that is raised and versatile for as many as three people. The seats fold with electronic controls, and you can raise the trunk floor to get a smooth surface for extra configurations. Or configure the Cullinan for two rear-seat passengers. You get two individually adjustable seats with a center console drink cabinet between them. There, you will find a fridge, decanter, two Rolls-Royce whiskey glasses, and two champagne flutes.
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan also does a great job at showing how far technology has come with features like a touch-screen theater and picnic tables for the rear seats. Find ports for headphones, Blu-Ray, AV, HDMI, and USB, or take advantage of wireless device charging and the electric reclining seats with USB-C connections.
With the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, those who can afford the height of luxury finally have an option that will take them off-road with confidence.
