It’s called a Super SUV for a reason.
As the SUV craze continues, exotic manufacturers now want a piece of the action. Lamborghini is the latest high-end manufacturer to put its name and reputation on SUVs with the launch of the Lamborghini Urus. But the Urus is not the first SUV ever made by this Italian company. Nearly 25 years ago, Lamborghini launched LMOO2, a military car boasting a V12 engine and designed for off-road use. While the vehicle enjoys its success, it’s nothing compared to the Urus. Deriving its name from a species of Wild OX, the Lamborghini Urus is the fastest SUV you can buy today. Like Bentley Bentayga, Audi Q7, and Porsche Cayenne, this SUV is built on an MLB Evo platform. But it’s backed up with a luxurious design and stunning performance. The SUV beautifully blends unparalleled Lamborghini driving experience with state-of-art technology that you won’t see offered by small automakers. Fast, quiet, and stylish, the Urus is the Ultimate SUV for thrill-seeking individuals and families. Below, you’ll discover other amazing facts about this outrageous SUV.
Lamborghini Urus Price
Lamborghini Urus price varies based on the model and the trim level you select. The 2022 Lamborghini Urus MSRP starts at $390,000 before on-road costs. But that’s just for the base trim with four seats. If you opt for a five-seater, you may have to spend about $ 402,750. As with every exotic vehicle, you will not get away with the base price. You might need to pile up on the offered options because they’re somehow necessary for maximizing the SUV’s performance. Because of this, Lamborghini Urus Price can quickly shoot past the $400K mark. The options include off-road modes with trailer towing prep, transparent protector film, panoramic roof, full electric front seat equipped with ventilation and massage, carbon ceramic brakes, etc. Luckily, the Urus classification as an SUV exempts it from gas-guzzler tax. As a result, saving buyers a few thousand dollars. Nevertheless, it’s not free from duty stamp and destination and handling charges over. While the Porsche Cayenne presents itself as an affordable option selling at $239,000, the Lamborghini Urus offers power full performance, and a faster driving experience.
Lamborghini Urus Review
Some purists may argue that Lamborghini should stick to producing supercars and leave high-end SUVs to renowned manufacturers like Range Rover. But clearly, these individuals haven’t read the Lamborghini Urus Review. The road machine is not just an SUV with a fighting bull symbol. It’s a beast on another whole level in terms of driving and handling, design, speed, and performance. Besides that, the Urus offers customers something the Lamborghini Huracán and Aventador don’t: towing ability and usable cargo space. Its interior might not rival its supercar counterparts, but it’s a badass family hauler. It’s a vehicle with a soul and a sense of purpose that only those behind the wheel understand. Lamborghini Urus horsepower of 641 and torque of 627 lb/ft help the SUV achieve mind-blowing speeds of 100km/h in only 3.6 seconds. It drives smoothly without feeling big and heavy and doesn’t lean into corners. All thanks to its suspension and tech, a heavily overpowered SUV on paper feels like a charming driver’s vehicle in person. The beauty of the Lamborghini Urus is what got us hooked. Every element of the car evokes a sense of supercar DNA, from the in-your-face styling to the chiseled creases. If those don’t grab your attention, maybe the six driving modes, including the Sport and Street mode will. We couldn’t help but also notice the car’s enormous 23” wheel warped in tailor-made Pirellis housed in flared wheel arches with body claddings.
Lamborghini Urus Specs
As for Lamborghini Urus specs, you will love what this utility vehicle has to offer. Despite the Urus’s weight of 4844lbs, the SUV steers and handles as perfectly as a sedan. The Italian manufacturer equipped it with a standard AWD, adept electronic wheel controls, and adjustable air suspension, allowing it to cruise through mixed terrains. With a soul of a supercar and the functionality of an SUV, the vehicle comes equipped with a monstrous V8 engine that makes it a formidable speed master. Coupled with a twin-turbo and 8-speed automatic transmission, Lamborghini Urus top speed is 189. 5mph. If that’s impressive, wait till you learn Urus ¼ mile is 11.4 seconds at 121 mph. While Lamborghini Urus 0-60 acceleration in 3.2 seconds is impressive, Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT achieves 0-60 in 3.1 seconds. Nevertheless, the SUV is still quick to get up to speed. What’s more, it can come to a halt from 62 mph in 110.5 ft, thanks to massive carbon-ceramic brakes. Since it uses the same MLB platform as the likes of Volkswagen Touareg and Audi Q7, it enjoys great dynamics, technology, and comfort. But at the same time, it’s limited in reference to styling and shape. But that didn’t stop engineers at Lamborghini from dressing the SUV with distinct styling free from cues of Volkswagen Group. The Y-shaped LED taillights, and tailgate lip spoiler draw inspiration from traditional Lamborghini models. Like the Aventador, the Raging Bull symbol takes center stage in front of the car’s hood. It’s also difficult not to notice the giant grille below with a huge lower air intake and front splinter and the four mortar pipes sticking from the rear.

Lamborghini Urus Engine
The concept Lamborghini Urus relied on a 5.0L V10 engine. But the production engine runs on a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Designed by Audi and produced at the Volkswagen Hungary plant, the engine also powers Bentley Continental GT, Audi RS6, and Porsche Cayenne. But for the luxury SUV, the manufacturer fine-tuned it to generate Urus hp of 641 at a maximum power of 6,000 rpm and torque of 627 lb-ft. For this reason, the Lamborghini Urus engine is one of the most powerful engines in production. It allows the car to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in only 3.6 seconds and reaches top speeds of 305 km/h. That’s impressive, factoring that the vehicle weighs over two tons. Besides that, the SUV gets permanent all-wheel drive. It also comes with four-wheel steering that compensates for its immense size. That means turning corners will be much easier for this all-around super sports car with rear wheels slightly turning in the direction of the turn. Like its siblings, the SUV remains agile on the road and nimble when navigating tight spaces.
Lamborghini Urus Transmission
Like all models currently offered by the Italian manufacturer, Lamborghini Urus Transmission is an eight-speed longitudinal automatic transmission. Working together with a V8 engine and four-wheel-drive system with active vectoring, the transmission allows the super sport utility vehicle to accelerate with great efficiency. It also allows the driver to enjoy an exceptional performance, whether on the racetrack, gravel country roads, snowy mountains, or desert. The gearbox shifts with clarity, picking the right gear at all times and directing torque to the rear axle. This way, the general dynamic behavior of the SUV becomes sport-oriented. The transmission can change the vehicle’s personality depending on the driving mode. It allows the car to drive smoothly on Strada(street) mode and become a brutal hard-shifter in Corsa (track) mode. Besides automatic transmission, Urus comes with standard paddle shifters that make it easier to change gears manually when the urge hits you.
Lamborghini Urus Interior
Lamborghini Urus Interior offers a unique blend of lavish Italian craftsmanship and advanced technology. The cabin is accentuated by top-quality and soft materials. Buyers have the option of choosing from a wide variety of interior materials, including Alcantara, fiber, aluminum, leather, and carbon finishes that blend perfectly. The best part is the customers can customize the interior finished with single or multiple color schemes to add a sense of uniqueness or personalization. Lamborghini Urus interior also boasts an aeronautic design coupled with driver-focused instrument construction. The three TFT digital display screens for infotainment, comfort functions, and instruments place the driver’s needs at the forefront while promising maximum comfort and fun. As for the dashboard, Lamborghini models adopt a Y-theme architecture that customizes to create a more sporty or elegant look. Other impressive features include a jet fighter-inspired start-up button, 1700-watt Bang & Olufsen speaker, 21 speakers, all-around smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth streaming, etc. Furthermore, backseat occupants enjoy individual smart screens for entertainment.
Lamborghini Urus Brakes
When it comes to Lamborghini Urus brakes, the vehicle uses 440 X 40 mm carbon ceramic disk brakes (CCB)for the front wheels and 370 X 30 mm carbon discs for the rear wheels. According to the manufacturer, the brakes can stop the SUV from 100Km/h in only 33.7 meters. The CCB is perhaps the largest and most powerful break in production today. Because the braking system matches the SUV’s performance, it has a high thermal resistance and handles frequent and heavy braking. That’s true even when the vehicle is at high speed or in extreme weather. It comes with no brake fades and optimizes pedal feel, ensuring maximum performance and safety in a wide variety of environments.
Lamborghini Urus Standout Features
The Lamborghini Urus is the first Lamborghini with a turbo engine, but not the first with a V8. It’s also the first model from the manufacturer to come with an electronic driver-assistance system. It comes with 23 driver assistance sensors that monitor the condition of the vehicle on the road and traffic to support the driver when driving. Using the Advanced Drive Assistance Feature, drivers can keep the SUV in its lane, maintain a safe distance and avoid potential obstacles. The system also activates the braking system in times of emergency. Besides that, Lambo Urus offers users three paint options–Verde Mantis, Arancio Borealis, and Giallo Inti. The automaker also unveiled Urus Graphite Capsule and Urus Pearl Capsule appearance packages that offer a wide range of color options customers can select, such as Necro Noctis, Grigio Keres, Grigio Nimbus, and Bianco Monocerus. If not enough, the super SUV gets six-driving mode. The Lamborghini Urus drive modes include:
- Strada (Road)
- Neve (Snow)
- Corsa (Track)
- Sabbia (Sand)
- Terra (Off-road)
For wheel options, Urus offers wheels ranging from 21 inches to 23 inches fitted with P265/35YR23(front) and P325/30YR23(rear) tires. Developed for Lamborghini by Pirelli, the tires vary depending on season and terrain. Lamborghini also provides all-season and all-terrain tires.
