Rolls-Royce Cullinan

Six years after its debut, Rolls-Royce has refreshed the Cullinan SUV with new exterior design, a redesigned interior, modern technology, and an emphasis on providing a wide range of customization possibilities. “The most extensive Series II development in Rolls-Royce history,” according to Rolls-Royce.

New LED daytime running lights that go all the way to the bumper have been added to the Cullinan’s front end. Also angled at the sides is the lower bumper configuration.

The grille has also been redesigned. Horizontal chrome bars now encircle it on top and bottom, and a new projecting edge below gives the idea that it is perched on a plinth. It also turns on for the first time now.

In addition to the rear valance being painted gloss black and kicking up at the back, there is a new feature line on the side that extends from the brake light to the center of the rear wheel. To complete the body design alterations, a new rear bumper with a stainless steel skid plate is added. The 23-inch aluminum wheels are one inch bigger than the previous ones.

With its unique air intake treatment, color-coded lower bodywork, and black door handles, the Cullinan Black Badge stands out more from the basic car.

Interior of a Rolls-Royce Cullinan Series II

The main interior improvement is a full-width glass panel that spans the dashboard and features an illuminated cityscape pattern similar to the Spectre in front of the passenger. Highlight number two is the newly installed display ‘cabinet’ in the dash, which holds a miniature stainless steel Spirit of Ecstasy mascot behind an incredibly accurate analogue clock.

According to Rolls, it required “a unique partnership between analogue and digital craftspeople to create a dramatic and meticulously orchestrated flow of light” and took four years to build.

Rolls-Royce’s Spirit infotainment system, which features updated displays and graphics, is also included in the Cullinan. Plus, it allows owners to customize their instruments to match the upholstery or paint job by changing the instrument colors. The premium members’ app from Rolls-Royce, Whispers, is also included in the latest version of Spirit. Whispers lets customers lock their cars, set destinations, and track their whereabouts via a phone.

With the addition of numerous new paint and material options, Rolls-Royce’s increasingly profitable personalization offering has grown. The open-pore wood trim with a metallic sheen called “Grey Stained Ash,” the bamboo fiber-based Duality Twill seat fabric with an elaborate design, and the perforated leather upholstery are some of the highlights.

Powertrain of a Rolls-Royce Cullinan Series II

The 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 engine that powers the Cullinan is still linked to an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, which distributes power to all four wheels. Under the hood, the engine remains mechanically unaltered. This engine has a 571 horsepower and 850 Nm torque output in the standard Cullinan, and a 600 horsepower and 900 Nm output when equipped with the Black Badge.
