Meet The 2019 Lamborghini Urus, A Brutal Display Of Speed And Extravagance

The Urus is Lamborghini’s long-awaited re-entrance into the SUV market, with the raw power of a Lamborghini super sports car, and the versatility and functionality of an SUV.

The extreme dimensions, the pure exquisite Lamborghini design and the outstanding performance make it absolutely unique: Urus is everything you’d expect from Lamborghini.

That flavescent bodywork hides a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, the first turbocharged engine ever to be installed in a production Lamborghini – and the first V-8 in many decades. This 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 sends a stout 641 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 627 pound-feet of torque already at 2,250 rpm through an 8-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels.

The Lamborghini Urus accelerates from 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds, 0-124mph in 12,8 seconds and with a top speed of 189mph it is the fastest SUV out there. The 707bhp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk also takes 3.6secs, but that’s from 0-60mph, and it trails by 10mph at the top end.

Good luck off-roading, though, with the Urus’s available 23-inch wheels (21-inch as standard, up to 23-inch if you must) mounted on unique Pirelli tires, size 285/35R-23 in the front and 325/30R-23 in back. The carbon-ceramic brakes are absolutely enormous, with rotors measuring 17.3 inches in front and 14.6 inches in the rear, the better to decelerate the roughly 4850-pound Urus.

In the Lamborghini Urus interior, luxurious Italian craftsmanship meets state-of-the-art technology. The aeronautic design and the driver-oriented instrument concept with three TFT screens (one for the instruments, one for infotainment and one for comfort functions and virtual keyboard with hand-writing recognition) put the driver’s needs at the forefront and make the overall experience more comfortable and enjoyable.

The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Urus in Spring 2018 with a pricetag of about $200,000 (suggested retail price, VAT/GST excluded).
