We are ready for the world’s fastest crossover, which is about to come in two months as 2019 Lamborghini Urus. Five years after the initial release of the concept, we are finally about to see a production model. This will be the first SUV from the famous Italian carmaker. The fact that even this manufacturer launches an SUV might sound strange and unnatural to you, but crossovers are overtaking the market pretty quickly. This even includes luxury cars. So far, we have seen many premium cars on the market.
However, Bentley Bentayga has been considered as the only ultra-luxurious model around. Now, we are about to get a new competitor. With its amazing sports pedigree, we have no doubt that the new 2019 Urus will quickly become a choice for many buyers. According to latest reports, production will start in about two months, with sales starting soon after.
2019 Lamborghini Urus redesign
Although we have never seen this kind of a vehicle from this manufacturer, we can clearly see that it is a Lamborghini. The company put a great effort on this model. So, after five years of development, we are about to see the new fastest SUV around. Although it rides on the same platform as crossovers like Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and VW Touareg, it comes with many differences. The most important thing is that the new crossover is significantly lighter. Thanks to the massive use of carbon fiber reinforced polymer, it weighs only 4850 pounds. This is probably the key reason why the new 2019 Lamborghini Urus will be able to go from zero to sixty in about 3.5 seconds. Another interesting feature is the world’s largest set of carbon brakes in a production car (17.32 inches at the front and 14.57 in the rear.
2019 Lamborghini Urus powertrain
Another interesting thing about the new crossover is powertrain. This time, we will not see the company’s famous V10 and V12 engines. Instead of that, the new 2019 Lamborghini Urus will feature a 4.0-liter Turbo engine. According to the company, it is not some kind of a re-tuned version of Audi’s famous V8, but a completely new unit.
The max power of the new engine will be around 650 horses and 627 pound-feet of torque. Transmission is an 8-speed automatic, which sends power to all wheels. This huge amount of power will be enough for a 0-60 sprint in about 3.5 seconds. A top speed will go to almost 190 miles per hour. Besides this version, there are also rumors about the possible hybrid version. Also, we shouldn’t exclude the possibility to see those naturally-aspirated V10 and V12 engines in the offer.
2019 Lamborghini Urus styling
In few words, this crossover definitely looks like Lamborghini. You can clearly notice those sharp lines that are brand’s trademark for so many years. Although headlights design is a little bit unusual, the massive grille definitely fits the company’s design philosophy. Oversized wheels give that crossover stance and provide so much-needed high ground clearance. In all other aspects, this crossover is pretty low. So, it definitely will not be as versatile as most of the crossover. On the other side, you get excellent aerodynamics. Moreover, its interior design looks like a cockpit of any other Lamborghini. You will find a recognizable steering wheel and digital instrument cluster. Infotainment system comes with two large touchscreens, replacing almost entirely analog controls.
2019 Lamborghini Urus release date and price
The production of the new 2019 Lamborghini Urus will start in about two months. So, expect its launch soon after. When it comes to price, some reports suggest a sum of 200.000 dollars. As we already mentioned, the main competitor will be Bentley Bentayga, but there are also models like Mercedes-AMG G65, Range Rover Supercharged etc.
