The 2019 Lamborghini Urus isn’t the first time the storied supercar manufacturer has affixed the Raging Bull to a sport-utility vehicle. We all remember the bonkers LM002 from 1990, flaunting its chunky styling and bonkers V12 for the off-road community. But that machine was introduced into a sedan-dominated world where the term sport-utility vehicle hadn’t even entered mainstream vocabulary, so already the Urus has significantly more potential simply because of the times in which we live.
It also has significantly more competition, though its 650-horsepower biturbo V8 does place it in rare company. Our minds immediately click to the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with its 707-horsepower Hellcat V8, and while the notion of a Lamborghini-versus-Jeep comparison threatens to tear apart the very fabric of existence, these two pumped-up people movers are surprisingly well matched, like it or not.
Let’s take a look at how these super-SUVs stack up against one another.
