Is the Lamborghini Urus four-wheel drive?
The Lamborghini Urus was just unveiled, and the world is still shuddering at its power, but what about its capability? Is the Lamborghini Urus four-wheel drive? Of course it is. In fact, the Urus will only be available as a four-wheel drive machine.
Is the Urus built for going off-road?
Make no mistake, from the very beginning the Urus was designed to handle any terrain that you would ever want to throw at it. Whether you are on tarmac, sand, snow, or in the mud, the Urus will be right at home and ready to deliver unrivaled performance.
Torque is split between the front and rear 40/60 by default, but the Urus also has dynamic control over this split. Up to 70% of the engine’s power can be diverted to the front and up to 87% of the engine’s power can be diverted to the rear (not at the same time obviously). This allows the Urus to adapt to driving conditions or even to your driving style. The Urus also utilizes torque vectoring which allows your engine to steer you around corners.
What are the Urus driving modes?
There are a total of six different driving modes that are selectable through the Tamburo driving dynamic selector. The driving modes are STRADA (street), TERRA (off-road), NEVE (snow), SPORT, CORSA (athletic), and SABBIA (sand). There’s also a configurable EGO mode.
Does the Urus have rear-wheel steering?
The Aventador S famously has rear-wheel steering. This may make you wonder if the Urus shares in this feature, and it certainly does. The rear steering angle can vary up to 3 degrees in either direction. This may not sound like a lot, but it will allow for control that is more precise, a better slow-speed turning radius, and a more responsive control at high speed.
At high speeds, the rear wheels will turn in the same direction as the front wheels thereby effectively lengthening the wheelbase and making a more stable ride. At low speeds, the rear wheels do the opposite allowing you to maneuver through even tighter corners.
