After months of high anticipation, Lamborghini is testing the SUV water with the help of high-performance Urus. Lamborghini plans to kill the competition with Urus. Lamborghini Urus is powered with 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine and complements Aventador and the Gallardo. The hardware produces an output of 641 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque. The top speed of Lamborghini Urus is 190 mph and can reach 62 mph from static position in 3.6 seconds. It takes 12.8 seconds to reach the speed of 124mph. A plug-in hybrid variant will be launched later on.
The power is transferred to all four wheels through electro-hydraulically controlled 8-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, torque converter boosts the response of twin turbo V8 engine. The four wheel drive system comes with torque splitter and the ratio is 40/60. A maximum of 70 percent torque reaches front wheel on demand whereas 87 percent goes to the rear. Lamborghini Urus takes rear-wheel steering system from Aventador S. With this addition, the car will be using counter-phase steering at low speed and in-phase steering and high speed. The in-phase steering is helpful for aiding maneuverability whereas later helps with stability.
There are six driving modes with Lamborghini Urus and they are Strada, Sport, Corsa, Neve (snow), Terra (off-road) and Sabbia (sand), and a custom mode named as Ego. With respect to Neve, Terra, and Sabbia, the chassis of the car is raised to increase its ground clearance. Strada, Sport and Corsa modes help in improving optimizing performance for street. The measurement of Lamborghini Urus is 16.77 feet long, 6.61 feet wide and 5.64 feet tall. It weighs less than 2,200 kg and also has large wheelbase (9.85 feet).
