THE SUV FOR THE FAMILY THAT HAS EVERYTHING

Zach Gale

Off-roading isn’t usually so hushed an experience, yet as I traverse a rocky trail in Wyoming, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan’s cabin makes a distinct impression. While the driver’s seat in this most opulent of SUVs gives me a massage, I peek out the windows to admire the Grand Tetons before regaining my focus, doing my part to maneuver a $330,350 SUV that’s half a foot longer than a standard Escalade.

Rolls-Royce’s first all-wheel-drive vehicle is a 210.3-inch-long SUV that shouldn’t make sense at all yet somehow feels true to the brand. An enormous 12-cylinder SUV is unnecessary (and perhaps overkill) for off-roading, but the Cullinan’s basic trail-ready credentials help justify its place in Rolls-Royce’s lineup. Most American buyers wouldn’t dream of taking a super-luxury SUV offroad, but should such a situation present itself, simply press an off-road button to optimize the Cullinan’s performance for the trail that leads to your survival bunker—ahem, alpine hideaway.
