SPIED! ROLLS-ROYCE CULLINAN SHOWS OFF SUV REAR END

A solid look at the upcoming all-terrain Rolls

It looks like the Bentley Bentayga won’t have the luxury SUV crown for much longer, at least not without a fight. The upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV was once again spied during testing, this time in a frosty winter environment. Following a preview earlier last year, this is one of the best looks we’ve gotten at the all-terrain Rolls.

Not much is known about the Cullinan, but the SUV will debut a new aluminum-intensive platform that will underpin all future Rolls-Royce models, including the next Ghost and Phantom. The camouflaged prototype sports proportions similar to a full-size Range Rover. The trademark upright radiator grille makes it clear this is Rolls’ SUV, however.

Underneath the slab-sided styling likely beats one of Rolls’ twin-turbocharged V-12 engines, sending power to all four wheels through an automatic transmission. We imagine it’s unlikely owners will be rock crawling in their very, very expensive SUV, but the Cullinan could prove to be quite capable off-road.

Aside from the Bentayga, the Cullinan will be the only other SUV available in the segment until the Aston Martin DBX and the Mercedes-Maybach SUV arrive.

Take a look at the future of Rolls-Royce in the photo gallery below.
