The forthcoming 2022 Lamborghini Urus will be a very exciting model. After three years of delivering mid-cycle refreshments, Lamborghini will now provide more radical changes. That includes the new Evo variant, along with the high-performance Sport RS model. However, Urus will offer a hybrid powertrain option, which is the most important upgraded in recent years.
It is a plug-in hybrid version that will combine a gasoline engine with an electric motor. Reportedly, performances will be impressive, which is expected from Lambo. As for the Sport RS model, it won’t offer a hybrid powertrain, but hybrid variants will be about 550 pounds heavier than the gasoline-powered models. The sales will begin later in 2021.
2022 Urus and Urus PHEV Specs
New 2022 Lamborghini Urus will arrive with the plug-in hybrid powertrain. Codenamed “LK5”, this variant will deliver improved performances and fuel efficiency. However, we still don’t know if Lamborghini will use a six-cylinder or eight-cylinder engine. Anyway, the gasoline engine will work with a hybrid system, without any doubt. Right now, Urus generates almost 600 horsepower. On the other hand, the electric motor will provide additional 200 horses and the total output will be rated at around 820 horsepower.
Surprisingly, Urus with a plug-in hybrid powertrain will gain a lot of weight. Latest reports are suggesting about additional 550 pounds, which is significantly more than the weight of regular V8-powered Urus. Thanks to that, Urus PHEV will weigh around 5,400 pounds. Unfortunately, Lamborghini is yet to announce fuel economy ratings, top speed, and acceleration.
Urus Sport RS
Clearly, the manufacturer plans to upgrade its famous SUV, and the new sporty model makes perfect sense. We are talking about the 2022 Lamborghini Urus Sport RS variant. This model will introduce more power than the regular Urus.
However, we don’t know yet if the Sport RS version will use some sort of hybrid powertrain. The latest reports are predicting an updated 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine, without an electric motor and battery pack. Allegedly, Urus Sport RS will add 25 horses, and it will develop 675 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque.
Exterior and Interior Changes
The 2022 Lamborghini Urus will host mild updates, so we don’t expect any sort of redesign or anything similar. The exterior looks striking, as always before and this SUV looks incredibly sporty. Urus comes with slimmer LED headlights and LED taillights, along with the quad exhaust tips and a larger rear diffuser. The hybrid variant shouldn’t depart from the regular Urus. However, the ST-X variant could host more changes and it will look very unique.
The interior of the new Urus should introduce minor updates. The cabin design remains as sporty as before and Urus provides a real luxury on the inside. Still, interior design and its layout won’t change at all. Lambo will provide an updated infotainment system, new driver-assistance aids, and probably more standard features.
2022 Lamborghini Urus Price, Release Date
The next 2022 Lamborghini Urus is coming to the markets with the mid-cycle facelift. Thanks to that, the price won’t start higher, or not drastically higher. Anyway, this SUV is available for about $220,000 and the PHEV variant will cost even more. The sales will begin later in 2021 or in early 2022. The manufacturer will reveal more details in the coming weeks.
