2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is astoundingly opulent

Would you expect any less from a $325,000 SUV?

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Rolls-Royce clearly wanted to make a car that embodies every inch of its badge, and it seems that the 2019 Cullinan fits the bill.

The front end's layout is similar to the eighth-generation Phantom's, but the character lines are exaggerated.

Everything is blockier, bulkier.

The Sprit of Ecstasy hood ornament is right where it should be.

Open up the suicide doors (on an SUV, no less!) and you'll find an interior fit for the six-figure price tag.

Under that long hood is Rolls-Royce's 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 putting out 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

It's sent to all four wheels through a transmission of some kind, Rolls-Royce didn't say, but it's probably the Phantom's eight-speed automatic.

Approach the Cullinan and it lowers about 1.5 inches to let you in, raising upon startup.

The Cullinan starts at $325,000, so you'd better start saving those stacks for when it goes on sale.
