With 641 turbocharged horsepower, the 2019 Lamborghini Urus is the fastest production SUV
You knew it was coming, and it’s finally here: The 2019 Lamborghini Urus. It’s not Lamborghini’s first SUV, but it’s the first one that’s going to go into mass production. For that reason alone, it’s worth paying attention to -- you’re going to be seeing a lot of these, at least compared to the number of Huracans and Aventadors you happen upon. It will be available next spring -- yours for just $200,000 to start.
The Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged 90-degree V8, connected to the all-wheel-drive system through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The motor delivers 641 hp (that's 650 pferdestarke) and 627 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm and 2,250 rpm, respectively. Redline is 6,800 rpm. This engine sounds suspiciously like the turbocharged 4.0-liter available in the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo, but it’s substantially up on output; 0-62 mph takes just 3.6 seconds, and the all-important 0-124-mph run takes 12.8.
All in all, Lamborghini says the Urus is the world’s fastest production SUV with a top speed of 190 mph -- notably, 3 mph faster than the Bentley Bentayga and 10 faster than the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, for those who keep track of these things.
