Whether you are a fan or not, Lamborghini’s Urus SUV has proved to be a huge hit for the Italian brand.
Despite the ongoing epidemic, Lamborghini was able to deliver a record 8,405 vehicles in 2021, about 60% of that number. The exact number was 5,021 units of high-riding ragging bulls.
Lamborghini is reportedly preparing a facelift for Urus to keep sales afloat, as prototypes have been seen at multiple events. Judging by the lack of camouflage in recent prototypes, we will probably see the updated SUV unveiled as the 2023 model. Urus first came on the market in 2018 as a 2019 model.
The latest prototype wears almost zero camouflage gear, allowing us to clearly see the new front fascia with extra vents on the outer edge. These are known as air curtains and help direct air flow around the car flanks. There is also a new hood with its own vent, while additional vents have been added to the rear car just behind the wheel arch.

There is a possibility of some tweak inside. At the top of the list may be an updated infotainment system. We’ve seen some more advanced electronic driver-assistance features.
Lamborghini did not mention plans for an updated Urus, although the automaker has confirmed that we will see a fully electrified lineup by the end of 2024. In fact, Lamborghini plans to launch its last non-electrified car this year There will be two models for the Huracan and Urus lines launched this year. We’ve already seen the Huracan Technica launch, and a high-riding Huracan sterato is thought to be right at the corner.
In the case of Urus, we will probably see this updated version, probably called Urus Evo, as one of two designed models. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The closest to such a car is the Urus ST-X race car.
The Urus currently comes exclusively with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that delivers 641 hp. This is enough for an acceleration of 0-60 mph and a maximum speed of 189 mph in about 3.5 seconds.
