The Lamborghini Urus is Finally Here

Called "the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle"

Collin Woodard
Dec 4, 2017

Today, about five years after we first saw the concept, Lamborghini revealed the production Urus SUV. Granted, our compatriots over at Motor Trend have already driven it, so head here for their driving impressions, but this is the first time we've seen it completely undisguised. MT will also have a more in-depth look a little later, but for now, let's take a look at the high points.

The exterior design is brash, in your face, and not subtle at all. Some might even call it obnoxious, especially with that green paint. But would it be a modern Lamborghini if it didn't look like that? If you want an ultra-expensive SUV that can slide by without always being noticed, there's always the Bentley Bentayga. Sharp creases and angular styling aside, we have to say we're impressed with how closely the production Urus sticks to the look of the concept. Lamborghini may have waited half a decade to put this car into production, but if you parked them next to each other, it would be hard to tell.

Inside, the Urus offers seating for five, so anyone who plans to use this as their family hauler will be able to do so. The rear seats even come with LATCH points for child seats, so there's no reason to get rid of the Urus if a new baby joins the family. The front seats will definitely be the better place to sit, though. Buyers can choose between standard 12-way adjustable, heated sports seats or 18-way adjustable massage seats that are both heated and ventilated. Lamborghini says it designed the center stack to make the driver feel like a pilot. Based on how many touch screens and buttons fill the center console, it sort of makes sense.

The most important parts, however, are under the sheet metal. That's where you'll find the engine, a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that makes 650 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, that's enough power to hit 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and keep going all the way to a top speed of north of 186 mph. To bring the Urus to a stop, Lamborghini included massive 17.3-inch carbon-ceramic rotors up front with 10-piston calipers. The 14.6-inch rear discs, meanwhile, get four-piston calipers. For better handling both on- and off-road, the Urus also comes with six different drive modes, rear-wheel steering, an adaptive air suspension, and active anti-roll stabilization.

Deliveries will begin sometime in the spring of next year, with an expected MSRP of $200,000.
