The word ‘Rolls-Royce’ has not only been used to refer to the brand but also as a metaphor. ‘The Rolls-Royce of boats’, ‘The Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles’, we have heard them all. Rolls-Royce produces their cars not only to deliver to their clients but to make a statement out of each one of them. They make sure that there’s no other car in the industry that gives you an experience as surreal as a Roll-Royce does and surprisingly, they have stayed true to their ambition throughout these years.

The Phantom is the heart and soul of the Rolls-Royce lineup. The Phantom resembles all of the ideas and philosophies that Rolls-Royce imbibes in their cars and is considered their magnum opus. The 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom hasn’t changed a bit compared to the previous model year version and has all the bells and whistles that came with the Phantom VIII to offer.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The Phantom does come in two trim levels surprisingly, which consists of the normal version and an Extended Wheelbase or ‘EWB’ version which offers 10-inches of more legroom in the second row. Prices for the Rolls-Royce Phantom start at $458,000 for the normal version and $538,000 for the EWB one. With almost infinite possibilities of customization options, there isn’t a cap on where the prices would go up to and it all depends on your needs and ambitions as the Phantom is not just a car, but it’s a modern-day coach building specimen. It particularly doesn’t have any competitors as such but is usually compared with the Bentley Flying Spur and the Mercedes-Maybach S 580

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Features

The 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom is available in two trim levels which are the regular Phantom and the Phantom EWB. The Phantom’s prices start at $458,000 and the Phantom EWB at $538,000 and as per the Rolls-Royce, there isn’t a cap as to where the prices would end after personalization as customers have endless options to choose from. And if the options provided in the Rolls-Royce Catalogue seem less for their clients, the customers can always have a one-off personalized feature or a whole one-off Phantom as per their needs.

Some of the features that have stayed with the Phantom since the Phantom 7 seem to be the suicide doors in the rear, the large grille in the front with the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, and the Rolls-Royce Umbrella. There are also some unique features that have always been present on the Phantom like the stationary wheel caps and bull leather upholstery in the interior. The only difference between the Phantom and Phantom EWB seems to be 10-inches of extra wheelbase, but the difference in pricing seems ridiculous.

We Recommend

Well, if you are approaching Rolls-Royce to commission a Phantom, there’s no reason for you to look for budget-friendly options as the terms ‘budget-friendly and ‘Rolls-Royce’ don’t go hand in hand. The trim level to be chosen depends entirely on the client’s needs and ambitions. Our suggestion would be the regular Phantom as it does have plenty of legroom inside and doesn’t really need extra 10 inches of legroom. But if you do feel the need for a Phantom limousine then you got to go with the Phantom EWB.

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Release Date

As we all know that a brand like Rolls Royce doesn’t like to play the petty games of teasing, they just release their vehicles in silence and wait for the customers to buy them. Just like that, the Phantom Rolls Royce doesn’t need to do any advertisement, they will just launch the vehicle in silence and we won’t even know about it but still, the upcoming 2022 version of Rolls Royce Phantom might see the market in the early stage of the year 2022.

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Engine and Performance

Powering the 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom is arguably one of the largest engine units in the automotive industry today. The 6.75 L twin-turbocharged V12 produces an incredible 563 horsepower and 664 lb-ft. of torque. The engine unit has to be one of the top modern marvels as it not only manages to power and moves the Phantom that weighs over 5,500 lbs. in a swift and smooth manner, it also has almost no vibrations from its side. The engine seems so silent that combined with the noise insulation levels in the cabin, you really can’t hear if the engine’s running or not from the inside. The engine has lots of grunt in the lower RPM and has enough power in its power reserve to scale all sorts of speeds.

The engine unit comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission unit that senses the road ahead with the help of sensors and GPS and always engages the right gear right when you need it to. Each and every piece on the Rolls-Royce Phantom is second to none and the transmission unit really seems to impress everyone with its quick and perfect shifts. The Phantom only comes as an RWD car which helps it glide and steer effortlessly through the cityscapes and highways equally. The Phantom, despite its heaviness, is a quick car indeed. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and can cover a quarter-mile distance from a standstill in 13 seconds without breaking a sweat. Its top speed is claimed to be at the 175 mph mark.

There isn’t any meaning in comparing the performance figures of the Phantom with its rivals as these cars are never meant to be performance machines. They do need to be swift and possibly quick and that seems to be the only requirements that their customers really care for. Compared to its rivals, the Phantom does seem slow, but then, it isn’t built for breaking acceleration records or performing at drag strips. The Phantom has more power than it would ever need for the purpose that it’s built for.

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Fuel Economy

Fuel economy isn’t the Phantom’s best qualities and with one of the largest engines in the industry powering the Phantom, we can’t really expect it to be a fuel-efficient one with that kind of displacement. But surprisingly so, with the help of forced induction, the Phantom VIII has managed to be more efficient than the previous generation of the Phantom, and that in itself is an achievement on the Phantom’s side. The Phantom offers a combined fuel economy of 14 miles per gallon and offers 12 and 14 MPG in the city and highway driving conditions respectively.

With a fuel tank capacity of 23.8-gallon, the Phantom manages to offer a combined range of 333.2 miles and a maximum fuel tank capacity of 476 miles on the highway. Although it has a larger engine compared to its rivals, it still has similar fuel economy figures and that’s an impressive feat that the Phantom has managed to achieve since the change in its generation. In fact, the Phantom offers more range on the highway than the Bentley Flying Spur does.

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Interior

There isn’t any comparison when it comes to the Rolls-Royce Phantom’s interior. If a modern-day luxury car has an interior that reflects the comfort and luxury of a first-class seat on an aircraft, then the Phantom is a private jet with a masseur and a private chef. The quality and finish of the Phantom’s interior along with the incredible design elements make it no less than a piece of art. The dashboard exudes luxury and portrays what modern-day coach building means. The dashboard has a gallery within it inside which the customers can commission any piece of art that they want inside. The upholstery throughout the cabin is done with the world’s best bull hides as Rolls-Royce doesn’t use leather obtained cows. That’s the level of attention to detail and stuff that goes on behind producing a Rolls-Royce. 

There isn’t an end to the kind of color combinations, designs, stitching, and trim inserts when it comes to the Rolls-Royce Phantom. A customer can customize the interior with an array of possibly infinite levels of combinations and selections. The front seats are 10-way power-adjustable heated and ventilated seats with the best level of comfort and confidence. The dual-zone automatic climate control unit for the front and rear and the smooth ride quality make sure you reach your destination with utmost comfort and luxury. The front doors get buttons that you can press to close them electronically because even pulling your door to a close can seem like a lack of luxury inside the Rolls-Royce Phantom. 

The rear seats are where you need to be when you are traveling in your 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom. The star-light roof, power-adjustable individual seats with heating and ventilation, an entertainment package, and electronic blinds ensure that you travel inside the Phantom in utmost luxury and comfort that you wouldn’t be able to experience elsewhere. The rear seats also get a champagne cooler with a pair of glasses in case you fancy a glass of champagne as you roll up to your fancy dinner in a Phantom. You can also configure the rear seats to be in a bench seat arrangement that can accommodate three passengers instead of the individual seats.

There is not much data mentioned in the table above to compare all these vehicles but one thing is for sure that all three vehicles support a seating capacity of 5. As the Phantom’s data is unavailable but out of Maybach S 580 and Flying Spur W12, the Maybach S 580 seems the spacious one in both front and rear row seats. If someone is worried about the cargo capacity then Phantom features the biggest in the competition of 19 cu-ft of cargo space. Some of the standout interior features are:

  • The dual-zone automatic climate control unit 
  • Heated and ventilated 10-way power-adjustable front seats
  • Exquisite leather upholstery throughout the interior
  • Individual seats in the rear with power adjustability, heating, and ventilation option
  • Star-light roof
  • A wide range of trim insert options that can be commissioned

How intuitive is the infotainment system?

As BMW is a parent company to Rolls-Royce, the Phantom comes with an infotainment system that might resemble the ones that you would find in a modern-day BMW. The infotainment screen that welcomes you with a ‘Welcome to Phantom’ message is a 10.25-inch screen that is controlled via a rotary knob controller and isn’t touchscreen as Roll-Royce claim that the fingerprints caused on the touchscreen display unit might hamper the beauty of the elegant gallery on the dashboard.

The standard music system is a 600w 16 speaker premium surround sound system with a 10-channel amplifier and 2 floor-mounted subwoofers. The Phantom gets Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth phone, and audio connectivity, and 4G WiFi hotspot internet access as standard connectivity features. Some of the standout infotainment features are:

  • In-built navigation
  • SiriusXM satellite radio
  • A 10.25-inch infotainment display unit
  • 600w premium surround sound system as standard
  • 16 performance speakers and 10 channel amplifier and two floor-mounted subwoofers
  • Bluetooth phone connectivity 
  • Apple CarPlay 
  • 4G internet access WiFi hotspot
  • Heads-up display

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Exterior

The Rolls-Royce Phantom’s looks are the definition of modern-day luxury saloons and the Phantom almost seems like a land-yacht. The bold tall side profiles, massive grille upfront with LED daytime running lights on the side, and the Spirit of Ecstasy up top along with the smooth and flowing lines in the rear all convey that the Phantom is the epitome of luxury.

The 21-inch painted alloy wheels come as standard on the Phantom but you can also configure from a wide range of wheel options that are available for the Phantom. Rolls-Royce allows you to choose from an endless array of paint options and combinations for your Phantom as well as the kind of Spirit of Ecstasy that needs to be upfront.

There simply is no comparison for the Phantom when it comes to exterior design and features. The Phantom certainly is the epitome of what can be done by Rolls-Royce in terms of design and engineering. The Bentley Flying Spur and the Mercedes-Maybach S 580 do look stunning with a wide range of customizable options, but there exists nothing that can rival the Phantom in terms of attention to detail and design prowess. Some of the key exterior features include:

  • 21-inch painted alloy wheels 
  • Auto on/off LED projector headlamps 
  • LED tail lamps
  • Suicide doors for the rear compartment
  • Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament
  • Infinite combinations of paint jobs that can be commissioned

Safety ratings regarding the 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom or its previous model year version on which it is based aren’t available in the NHTSA or IIHS records, but It is sure with the fact that the Phantom will be one of the safest cars on road as Rolls-Royce’s engineering capabilities and prowess are second to none. The safety features that come with the Phantom include all sorts of modern-day features such as Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Front and rear parking sensors, Aerial view camera system, Night vision camera, and a lot more. Some of the notable safety features are:

  • Low Tire Pressure Warning

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Competition

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. 2022 Bentley Flying Spur

Compared to the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the Bentley Flying Spur costs almost half of what the Phantom costs and that surely is an advantage on Bentley’s side as it manages to offer the best of what Bentley has to offer in terms of luxury and performance in a sedan. But we rarely suspect that any person with the will to purchase a Phantom even cares about its price as the Phantom is more than just its price tag.

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. 2022 Mercedes-Maybach S 580

The Mercedes-Benz Maybach S 580 surely is the epitome of luxury but it really can’t really match the opulence and luxury of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The Mercedes-Maybach S 580 costs only a fraction of what the Phantom costs but the Phantom has far more to offer compared to the S 580 and the infinite customization options offered by the Rolls Royce not only for Phantom but for every vehicle in their garage makes Rolls Royce the royal brand that’s still retaining its royal British heritage.

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom Final Verdict

If you demand the most luxurious production car available in today’s day and age, then there is no better car on offer than the 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom. It has been the top-of-the-line Rolls-Royce for decades now and has given the Rolls-Royce brand an image that cannot be rivaled with. There simply isn’t any car in the industry today that is as luxurious, opulent and marks its presence as the Phantom and that exactly is the motivation you need to buy one, of course with the money in hand.
