Rumors about a luxurious SUV carrying the Bentley logo have just been confirmed by the company’s new boss, Wolfgang Durheimer, who said that the new model will be available by 2014.
The Bentley SUV is expected to be the most luxurious model in its segment and will be priced at around 150.000 British pounds. With a unique styling, luxury wood, leather and VW’s high tech features, the SUV will be powered by a W12 engine in auto markets where diesels aren’t so popular, with a massive 1.000 Nm torque (738 lb-ft).
According to Wolfgang Durheimer the new SUV’s platform hasn’t been decided yet but it has all the chances to be the same as the next generation Audi Q7.
“I have great faith in the SUV market and it is here to stay”, said Wolfgang Durheimer, who counted the launch of the Porsche Cayenne as “one of my proudest achievements”.
No other official details are being known about the Bentley SUV but the model is expected to set a new benchmark in its segment.
