Bentley has recently confirmed the production of the Falcon, with the SUV being made in Bratislava, Slovakia and then assembled in Crewe, England.
Rumors on Bentley producing an SUV have been around ever since early last year but now the Volkswagen owned brand is one step closer to fulfilling this dream. According to the company’s CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, the Bentley Falcon SUV will enter production in the nearby future and the model has been given the green light. The new Bentley Falcon will be made in Bratislava, Slovakia, and it will eventually be shipped to Crewe, England, where it will be assembled.
As you probably already know, the Bentley Falcon will be based on the EXP 9 F SUV, which was unveiled back in 2012 during the Geneva Motor Show. The production version of the model is expected to share the same platform as other upcoming luxury SUVs made by the Volkswagen Group, including the Porsche Cayenne, the new Audi Q7 or the Volkswagen Touareg. As for the engine lineup, it will include a W12 petrol, a V8 diesel and probably a V6 plug-in hybrid. More details on the Bentley Falcon SUV are limited for the moment.
