2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan

2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan Release Date Info

There is a lot of excitement surrounding the newest 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan model. Entering the luxury SUV market has always been the aim of British automaker. With other luxury brands already starting to do so and with the newest Bentley Bentayga under way, there are more and more luxury SUVs filling the segment.

Rolls Royce is finally adding their own horse in the race. And it comes in the form of the Cullinan vehicle. For now there were rumors that vehicle  will be under development but there is no exact evidence for that.

Till now that is. The vehicle has been spotted with camo and is currently doing rounds and tests. We lately managed to see it at the Nurburgring track where the model is making its probably final tests. Either way it is clear evidence that the model is closer to its completion than we actually expected it to be. According to some predictions, it will most likely come out by the start of 2019 model year. All in all, it is really good to see that the luxury SUV segment is gaining another very good addition.

What Could be the Price of the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan?

Sources are not exact to reveal the actual price of the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan. This is a luxury segment that we are talking about. So we are not expecting the car to go for a cheap price. We are very much excited to see this vehicle in action. However, chances are that it will cost as much as the latest Phantom. This means that the price is going to be somewhere at around $420,325, which is the base MSRP of the current Rolls Royce Phantom model. The 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan will not cost less. But it may add a few figures above this range. The expectations are sky high for this car, so we feel that any sort of a price will be appropriate for it.

Rumored 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan

After years and years of speculations, we finally have the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan car. But it was a long road with a lot of guess work that we had to do. And many cancellations happened along the way. Rolls Royce wanted this to be a secret. So their development of an SUV was kept under the guise of mystery. After the completion has made a lot of strives to present their own models it was clear that Rolls Royce had to release something as well. It was a lucrative opportunity that they could not pass.

Finally, the leaked information forced Rolls Royce to finally admit what they have been doing. The rumors were finally confirmed. And the excitement came with the first set of spy photos. There will be more to learn about the new Cullinan as the development progresses. But as we are able to see they are in its final stage of development. We are trying to present all the known facts with this review but some of it will be updated afterwards as well.

Exterior Design of the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan

With the coming 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan, there is a high expectancy about how the model will look like. But do not get your hopes up and don’t expect a revolutionary design. Rolls Royce has decided to use the familiar elements and borrow most of them from the existing vehicles from the linkup. You will immediately recognize the elements borrowed from the Ghost and Phantom models, particularly in the front. The massive chrome grille is there as are the slim headlamps. But the configuration below the grille is different with a tall bumper and a new skid plate.

The profile of the 2019 Rolls Royce is something completely different than we have seen form this company. The model has a long roof and a rear section which has almost a boxy shape. This means that Rolls Royce has decided for a more down-to-earth and old school look compared to what the other automakers have entered with in the luxury segment. The trademark features are there, though, like the high belt line also the usage of coach doors. The wheels are also borrowed from the Phantom. You can deduce that based on the thin design of the spokes.

But the rear end of the 2019 Cullinan greatly departs from anything else that you have seen from Rolls Royce. This is mostly because of the added wagon like roof and the tailgate. This adds a complete new dimension for Rolls Royce products. The taillights are actually going to be similar as the ones in the Phantom car. They decided against the horizontal ones which would be a far more suitable choice for the segment. Finally, the bumper is slightly more swept back than usually.

Dimensions and Size

The size of the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan has yet to be determined. In fact, this vehicle is the first SUV that the British automaker of luxury vehicles has made. So it is not easy to assume what they plan to do with the dimensions as there is nothing to base it upon. Either way, based on the spy photos, the vehicle is going to have a shorter wheelbase. The exact figures are not yet confirmed and we would hope to see some additional information by the time the car is released but we are still no certain when it will happen.

Color Choices for the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan

The 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan may be an SUV competing in the luxury segment, but there is still a massive interest about the color choices. This one is something that fans who want the best aesthetics out of their car and who want to look extremely good while driving down the street in their newest SUV. But unfortunately, there is no news to tell us exactly which color variants are going to be utilized here. They camo is getting thinner and thinner with every new spy photo which comes out but there is still not enough evidence to officially confirm which options we are going to get.

Interior Look for the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan

The inside of the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan has been hidden for a long time. At first they managed to successful hide ever detail about the inside of their newest vehicle. But as time progressed, they finally gave us something to work with and started showing us what they have done on the inside. To no one’s surprise, the interior is going to be mostly borrowed from the Phantom VIII model. But they will adapt the interior to fit an SUV and all of the sedan elements, although still visible, are extremely toned down.

Thus you are expect to get the same massive dashboard with a big infotainment display. The center console is wide and tall and there are also big A/C vents atop the controls placed in the center section. But this time they went for a more conventional layout which fits the design of the SUV much more appropriately. We are also expecting to get some high levels of luxury. This means Alcantara leather and some customized parts. They are going to add some unique specifications for this model which no other Rolls Royce will get. But it remains to be seen which changes they make as they are still keeping some parts hidden even from the photographers.

Engine Specs and Variants of the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan

Even though it has not been confirmed yet, the 2019 Rolls Royce may sport a very interesting choice under its hood. The decision may come to a twin-turbo 6.6 liter V-12 powertrain used for the Ghost model. But the engine will have to go massive tweaks and will surely get updates before they decide to use it for this vehicle. The potential output may mouth to 600 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque and the transmission choice will probably be the eight-speed, ZF automatic transmission. Another option is the revised, twin-turbo 6.75-liter V-12 from the Phantom VIII car. If utilized correctly it will amass a total of 563 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, giving the rivals a run for their money.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

The 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan is going to have some respectable specs. But until they decide which powertrain to use, it is still not clear how much will these numbers amount to. If we are to guess, the potential powertrains can allow an acceleration of 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.

Fuel Economy of the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan

There is no fuel economy specs for the 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan as of writing this review. But they may amount to similar mpg ratings as the cars which engines they are borrowing from.

2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom – Release Date, Review and Specs

The new 2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom is powerful and lavish, and is blessed with solid BMW hand-crafted designs and engineering elements that cover every inch of its vast exterior and interior, making it nearly as enjoyable from the driver seat as it is from the backseat. Some of its strengths include infinite customization options, an utterly silent cabin and tranquil ride, an impressive performance, and peerless craftsmanship and materials quality. Its release date should be expected in early 2017.

Prestigious, stately, and ultra-luxurious are some of the defining attributes you here around every time the Rolls-Royce Phantom passes by. It is perhaps the most customizable machine on the planet. Even without the optional packages and standalone features, the relentlessly impressive craftsmanship which, by the way, is largely done by hand, and extensive use of high-end materials are enough to offer you a high-end luxury and comfort.

And regardless of whether you ponder the lambs-wool floor mats or a cigar humidor in the glove box to be gratuitously ostentatious or gloriously opulent, there is now denying the posh excellence the Phantom can offer. The hush interior and the ride quality make for a memorable driving experience regardless of whether you are driving on asphalt or dirt.

The interior room is plenty and even the 6-foot millionaires will be hard-pressed to find a nicer place to sit while they’re stuck in traffic. It is simply in its own league whether you are looking at performance or luxury.

It’s difficult to compare it with any other car on the road by nature of its status, but if you feel the need to, there are a handful of rival vehicles worth considering. They include the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne. The latter is somehow sportier and commands the same attention as the Phantom, while the former may seem as a bargain and is an appealing choice though the material quality might be modest relative to the Phantom.
