First showcased as a concept way back in 2012, the Lamborghini Urus crossover has taken its own sweet time to morph into a production vehicle.
Before its December 4, 2017, global debut, Lamborghini has dropped a teaser video giving the world a taste of Urus’ off-roading prowess. The upcoming crossover will feature a four-wheel steering system alongside a traction control system with six settings - Strada (road), Sport, Corsa (track), Sabbia (sand), Terra (dirt), and Neve (snow).
The teaser video focuses on the Sabbia mode, and shows a camouflaged Lamborghini Urus doing some serious sand dune drifting. In the very same video, the four-wheel steering system can be seen in action as well. Expect the four-wheel steering technology in the Urus to be borrowed from the Aventador S.
The Urus shares its platform with the Bentley Bentayga and Audi Q7, and will be the first Lamborghini vehicle to feature a hybrid system. The hybrid setup is said to be paired with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine to pump a combined out in the vicinity of 600bhp.
While many believe the Urus to be the first ever Lamborghini SUV, it actually is not. The Raging Bull’s first shot at an SUV was the LM002, which was sold from 1986-1993. After being absent from the SUV space for around 24 years, the Urus will mark Lambo’s re-entry into the booming segment.
