Lamborghini Urus SUV

The Lamborghini Urus is the latest addition to the growing collection of ultra-luxury SUVs. New for 2019, the Urus combines performance with a swanky interior and plenty of cargo space. Although the price tag is in the "don't ask" realm, this vehicle is perfect for those who don't want to sacrifice that sports car feel even though they need a vehicle to transport the kids and pets around town. The Urus has four doors, can be configured to hold four or five people and is available in four-wheel-drive and four-wheel steering only. The Urus starts at $200,000. Lamborghini offers a 36-month bumper-to-bumper warranty at no additional cost.


What type of engine and transmission does the Urus have?

The Urus comes with a bi-turbo V8 engine, capable of producing 650 hp. According to Lamborghini, it has the best weight-to-power ratio in the SUV market. The Urus has an eight-gear automatic transmission with manual shift paddles. The shifter looks more like a jet throttle than a gear shift and offers five driving modes called animas--street, race, snow, sand and off-road.


What colors does the Urus come in?

The Urus comes in black, silver, yellow, two shades of blue, two shades of red, two shades of grey and a blue/white/silver combination. Interior color choices include black or cream leather with a variety of decorative stitching options.
