The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is actually more capable than we all expected

Few if any Rolls Royce Cullinan owners will realistically take their new high-riding Rolls off-road since they are like all other SUV buyers who just enjoy the raised driving position and the extra feeling of safety that a vehicle like this conveys. Besides, Rolls is marketing the car as a practical, family proposition - something it has never done with any previous model.

Is the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Really Good Offroad?

Should you venture off the blacktop in a new Cullinan, you may be surprised by just how capable it actually is. Rolls Royce recently organized an event and invited journos to try out the Cullinan in different conditions. While we already know it has become the most comfortable SUV on the road out there, we really could only make guesses in regards to its off-road prowess.

But, if you can afford it, you will be happy to know that you can successfully take it off-road, much more so than any other SUV produced by the BMW group (which is renowned for its distinctly road-focused SUVs). You know the Cullinan means business when just putting it in its off-road mode raises the ground clearance by 40 millimeters and, in true Rolls Royce fashion, you don’t need to press any additional buttons or fiddle with any more settings.

Don’t expect the Cullinan to do rock crawling or beat a Land Rover Defender’s wading depth (in case you were wondering, the Cullinan is able to drive through water up to 540 mm deep), but it’s also not going to leave you stranded. Some more extreme testing is required (away from the confines of an official launch venue) to determine just how far it can be pushed, although an owner willing to put the Cullinan through rigorous off-road testing probably won’t be easy to find.
