Is The 2015 Bentley SUV Coming?

Bentley fans have waited patiently to see if the rumors of a new 2015 Bentley are true. Well, it would appear that, not only are they true, the new version of the old standard will be better than ever. The new 2015 Bentley is touted to be the first super-premium crossover and, like other Bentleys, the SUV will offer extensive customization options.

Bentley has revealed the new SUV will be a departure from the EXP 9F model. Car enthusiasts discovered that this new Bentley will be the cat’s meow for Bentley owners. The new plans were unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

It would appear that the 600-horsepower EXP 9F would take some design cues from the front finish of the Mulsanne. This coupled with rear styling borrowed from the Land Rover, the new Bentley promises to offer owners a new experience in SUV driving. The Guardian reported that Kevin Rose, Bentley’s Director of Revenue and Promoting, “guaranteed the brand’s shoppers will love the 2015 model. There were rumors that the 2015 Bentley would be called “the Falcon”; however, Rose stated that “if he has “anything to do with it, it won’t be called the Falcon.” He thinks that the name would not do the new Bentley any justice.

The car will to go into production in Eastern Europe in 2015-2016. Normally Bentleys are produced mostly in Britain, however, this vehicle will be such a departure that it is rumored that Eastern Europe will offer more privacy as they produce what Bentley is calling a rock-solid SUV with the glamor of the Bentley name.

The 2015 Bentley SUV will be priced to contend with the newest Land Rover offering drivers a square chance at affordability. There are also rumors swelling about how economical Bentley will make their new edition. A powerful engine will be coupled with all the technology available to offer the best gas mileage possible. One rumor is that the 2015 Bentley will ride on a stretched and modified version of the next VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne platform. It is also said to sport an engine that will be shared with the Continental GT, meaning the new Bentley SUV will offer a twin-turbo W-12 and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic will connect to an all-wheel-drive system.

So before you give up on the stories that have been circulating for some time, keep your heads up, Bentley drivers… the new 2015 Bentley SUV is on its way.
