2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Review: Specs and Pricing

2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan


The 2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan travels with unmatched tranquility and pampers everyone inside, as one might anticipate from an extremely costly SUV. This people mover is motivated with ease by a powerful and smooth V-12. Even if its outward appearance is on the ungainly side, the Rolls-distinctive Royce's hood ornament and enormous dimensions let observers know that it is a Rolls-Royce and that its occupants are quite wealthy.

We only wish that contemporary styles, such as digital instruments, wouldn't detract from the cabin. Additionally, we would want the conventional rear seat to be more adaptable. However, Cullinan's cabin's quietness, construction quality, and ability to customize the area to the owner's tastes are unmatched.

What has changed for 2022?

For the 2022 model year, Rolls-Royce doesn't make any alterations to the Cullinan. It still has a twin-turbo V-12 engine with 563 horsepower (592 in the Black Badge version). The basic all-wheel-drive system is still powered by an eight-speed automatic transmission that manages gearshifts.

Pricing of 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan

The base price of the 2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is $332,750.

Which one to Purchase?

The Crystal paint job, the 22-inch seven-spoke wheels, the gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, and the electronic tow hitch would be our choices if we could afford a Cullinan. We would get the Immersive Seating with Center Console option, which replaces the center seat with a console that also functions as a beverage cooler and comes with two champagne flutes and a whiskey decanter.

This option also adds the rear seat massaging functionality. And we wouldn't miss the chance to have the Shooting Star Headliner project a fiber-optic night sky onto the fabric over our heads. To transform the back row into a peaceful refuge, we would also add the rear privacy glass and side drapes.

2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan: Interior and Comfort

Box-grain leather, lambswool carpeting, gorgeous wood trim, and machined aluminum accents decorate the interior of the roomy cabin. The Cullinan's already opulent inside may be customized with practically every treat you can think of by Rolls-Royce if you want an even greater level of luxury.

The only flaws in this otherwise opulent area are the conventional rear seats, which are as rigid as a park bench, and the entire digital instrument cluster, which lacks the beauty of an analog design. Customers can at least fix the latter problem by adding adjustable and massaging features to the second row's two seats.

Although the car's exterior is typical Rolls-Royce, the liftgate layout allowed the manufacturer to add an optional Viewing Suite, which consists of two leather-wrapped seats and a small table that emerges from the floor to the cargo space.

This is without a doubt the most opulent method to watch a polo match at the rural estate. Even though the historic British brand is breaking convention with the new SUV, Rolls-Royce remains a Rolls-Royce in every respect.

2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan: Connectivity

A big touchscreen infotainment system with a backup controller is standard on every Cullinan. Every model includes Apple CarPlay. Each back of the front seat now has a 12.0-inch screen thanks to the optional rear-seat entertainment option. The Cullinan boasts an 18-speaker custom audio system in addition to a Wi-Fi hotspot.

2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan: Engine and Performance

To avoid disturbing the VIPs in the cabin, the Cullinan's twin-turbo 6.7-liter V-12 engine produces 563 horsepower (592 in the Black Badge edition) and is extremely quiet. For a car that weighs roughly three tons, the one we tested reached 60 mph in under 4.5 seconds. 

Although buyers are likely to never wander off the road and risk damaging the paint, all-wheel drive is standard. The air suspension that supports the Cullinan automatically adjusts the vehicle's height in response to road irregularities after receiving data from a road-scanning camera. The Cullinan wafts along the road without disconcerting the passengers within, providing ride comfort that exceeds that of typical luxury cars.

2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan: Fuel Efficiency and Actual MPG

The V-12 engine in the Cullinan is capable of 20 mpg on the freeway and 12 mpg in the city. Despite popular belief, those numbers aren't the worst in their category. 12 mpg city and 17 mpg highway are the ratings for the V-12-powered Bentley Bentayga. We tested the Cullinan extensively, running it on our 75 mph highway fuel-economy route, and it performed better than expected, getting 21 mpg.
