The world needs more fast SUVs, so children aren’t late to soccer practice and we don’t miss the Black Friday sales at Home Depot. At least, the market says we need insanely fast SUVs, and automakers are obliged to supply them.
You can watch the camouflaged Lambo Urus try whipping around the Green Hell. I say try, because it can’t pull the same kind of cornering as the Huracan or really any other modern Lamborghini. Do you feel sad watching the video of this bloated bull struggling? Some people do.
Lamborghini is using the same platform for the Urus as what the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Volkswagen Touareg, and Porsche Cayenne ride on. It uses a plug-in hybrid powertrain, plus plenty of carbon fiber body panels you’re not allowed to see fully yet.
Of course, Lamborghini will sell plenty of these things. People with too much money will line up for one, and they’ll help finance some exciting future vehicles.
