Rolls-Royce, the epitome of luxury in the automotive world, has unveiled the Cullinan Series II, a refresh of its opulent SUV that sets a new standard for luxury and performance. This latest iteration of the Cullinan, first introduced in 2019, boasts a host of updates, including a revised exterior design, luxurious interior materials, and the same formidable 12-cylinder engine that has come to define the Rolls-Royce brand.

The Cullinan Series II represents the culmination of Rolls-Royce’s dedication to craftsmanship, innovation, and uncompromising luxury. From its iconic Pantheon grille, now illuminated for the first time, to its sleek new dashboard and ornate interior details, every aspect of the Cullinan Series II exudes elegance and sophistication.

One of the most striking updates to the Cullinan Series II is its refreshed exterior design. The front end of the SUV has been restyled with new LED daytime running lights and a V-shaped line in the bumper, giving it a more commanding presence on the road. Around the back, subtle character lines and a restyled bumper with a high-gloss black finish add to the vehicle’s sense of luxury and refinement.

Inside the cabin, the Cullinan Series II offers a sanctuary of comfort and opulence. A new glass panel stretches the full width of the dashboard, housing both the digital gauge cluster and center touchscreen. The dashboard also features an Illuminated Fascia panel, a stunning piece of artwork that sits in front of the passenger and can be customized to the owner’s specifications.

But it’s not just the aesthetics that set the Cullinan Series II apart—it’s also the attention to detail and craftsmanship that Rolls-Royce is renowned for. The SUV features new materials, including grey-stained ash trim and a rayon fabric crafted from bamboo called duality twill. Additionally, the Cullinan showcases a new design technique that uses perforations in the leather to create intricate patterns inspired by the ever-changing shapes of clouds. Under the hood, the Cullinan Series II retains its powerful 12-cylinder engine, delivering effortless performance and unmatched refinement. 

The Black Badge model, known for its more aggressive styling and enhanced performance, returns with the same twin-turbocharged engine, producing 592 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Most of the important changes ushered in by the Cullinan Series II also apply to the facelifted Black Badge, the sub-brand Rolls calls its “disruptive alter ego.” Contributing to that personality is a grille, Spirit of Ecstasy, and window trim finished in black rather than chrome for the first time. The rear bumper, hatch trim, and exhaust tailpipes are finished in a mirror-effect black chrome, and the wheels measure 23 inches across.

Inside, there’s the same digital dashboard panel, but the pocket-sized Spirit of Ecstasy is black, not chrome. The interior is garnished with carbon trim, and 23 parts require six coats of lacquer and 21 days to produce. The Black Badge makes more concessions to sporty driving through more aggressive throttle and transmission calibration and reduced brake pedal travel.

In terms of technology, the Cullinan Series II comes equipped with Rolls-Royce’s latest infotainment system, Spirit, which offers seamless connectivity and intuitive navigation. Rear passengers are treated to various amenities, including dual rear screens with unique streaming interfaces and individual massage, heating, and cooling functions.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Series II represents the pinnacle of luxury SUVs, combining exquisite craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology, and uncompromising performance in a package that is as opulent as it is capable. Whether cruising through city streets or embarking on an off-road adventure, the Cullinan Series II will turn heads and elevate the driving experience to new heights.
