Specifications and Price Now Available for Lamborghini Urus
By Zlatan Stankovic on December 7, 2017
As we head ever-closer to 2018, there are certain models we have been waiting a few years just to even catch a glimpse. While there are many to be listed, the second SUV from Lamborghini has got to be near the top of this list. Well, the wait is now over and the Urus was revealed to much excitement from car fanatics all over the world. Ever since the LM002 left the market, the gap has been noticeable but it’s soon to be filled.
Just recently, Audi and Lamborghini introduced a whole new assembly line to deal with demand for the Huracan but also to make sure this new SUV offers the highest-quality possible. Known as the ‘Lamborghini Factory 4.0’, the new headquarters looks fantastic and it fills us with confidence that the Urus will offer Europe’s best engineering and styling.
In terms of details, we now know 650 horsepower will be available thanks to a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine; this will also generate just under 630 lb-ft of torque. What does this mean? For one thing, it should take just 3.6 seconds to reach 62mph and around 12.8 seconds to reach 124 mph. Boasting an eight-speed automatic transmission, the model uses a four-wheel drive system as well as a number of extras which makes it ideal for off-road adventures.
Recently, the weight has been a huge question for the Urus and we believe it’s going to come in at 4,850 pounds. With all the information we’ve provided, this will all combine to offer nearly 190mph at top speed. If you want to get your hands on the model, you’ll need to fork over $200,000.
What else does the Urus offer? In order to gain traction, an SUV needs active torque vectoring these days and the Lamborghini duly complies; this is also helped by the rear-wheel steering which was introduced with the Aventador S. With the Tambour driving mode selector, the active torque vectoring has yet another role to play.
In total, there will be four different driving modes; Corsa, Strada, Sport, and Neve. When driving off-road, this expands to include Sabbia (sand) and Terra (off-road). Once the Terra driving mode has been selected, the driver will benefit from an electromechanical active roll stabilization system which is a first for Lamborghini. Even on bumpy roads, straight roads and when rounding corners, the roll angle will be reduced.
If you’ve seen the latest ads, you’ll see the comparisons and references they’ve drawn from engineering and science; they discuss those who decided to defy conventional wisdom and take the paths ‘less traveled’. If you’re someone who questions the status quo, Lamborghini says this model is for you.
As you might expect, buyers will have an opportunity to choose from numerous optional extras as well as design choices such as color. In the US, Lamborghini has settled for $200,000 and we can’t wait to see whether or not it’s a hit as they venture into the sports utility vehicle niche for a second time!
