Here is something out of the ordinary. Lamborghini had presented the concept Urus at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, and now the company has given this model a green signal to enter into production. The most interesting about the model is that it is an SUV. This upcoming 2018 Lamborghini Urus has a one of a kind design, and it has been said that this vehicle is going to create a whole new segment.
2018 Lamborghini Urus: Engines and Transmission
The Lamborghini Urus looks like a combination of designs from sports cars and full-sized SUVs. This SUV already looks fast, and there is no doubt on how its performance is going to be.
Powering this new fascination will be a 4.0-liter V 8 engine that will be able to produce a whopping 600 HP and as much as 700 lb-ft of torque. Earlier reports have said that a 5.2-liter V10 engine could also be used.
All in all, an automatic dual-clutch gearbox has been said to be used. It has been said that this upcoming Lamborghini Urus is going to be one of the fastest SUVs on the market. This is because it only takes 4 seconds to reach 60 mph from 0 which is interesting to note.
A hybrid model of this Urus has also been hinted which could incorporate a hybrid powertrain. There is no word on its powertrain, expect both all-wheel drive and 2-wheel drive to be in the option.
Design and Features
The exterior of this 2018 Lamborghini Urus is its most interesting feature. First and foremost, its overall design is very stylistic and intriguing. The design looks like it has been inspired by some of the existing Lamborghini sports cars.
Starting off with its front fascia, its headlights are compact and don’t protrude much like a sports car. Its grille is more of a small section rather than a full sized unit. This is compensated by its large hexagonal air vents at each side.
Things get bulkier and broader as we move on to the rest of the portion of this SUV. Its roof has a decent sloping towards the rear end. The rear wheel base protrudes significantly and is much broader than that of its front.
Its rear fascia is stylish too as a neat horizontal section has been cast out which holds the taillights. The most interesting part would be the twin quad exhaust pipes and an aggressive skid plate.
Like its exterior body, the company has managed to present a very stylish and futuristic interior cabin in this 2018 Lamborghini Urus. From what several images hold, the seats look, unlike anything that has been incorporated in SUVs.
The cockpit seems to be futuristic with unusual yet trendy design elements. The console for rear seats also seems to be incorporated with tech gadgets and quad AC vents. This similar case is with the door panels as stylistic trims can be seen.
Price and Release Date
Although its official price hasn’t been confirmed, experts have suggested the figures to be around $200,000. As to its launch date, the 2018 Lamborghini Urus could be out in the showrooms any sooner in late 2017.
