Bentley to Install a 600 BHP Displacing W12 Engine in its Upcoming SUV
|   Friday, September 20, 2013
Bentley has confirmed plans to reveal its first SUV fall 2016, even though this vehicle is yet to take shape. Kevin Rose, Marketing Manager, Bentley recently claimed that even though the final announcements are to be made shortly, this SUV from Bentley will draw power from a W12 engine displacing close to 175 – 650 BHP. This is massive power generation as compared to other vehicles from the company.

However, keeping in mind the size and weight of an SUV, the figures should do justice to its general design.
Bentley is known to manufacture heavy weight vehicles and hence this yet to be named SUV is expected to follow Bentley's designing traits. Insiders claim that the power train will be borrowed from The Volkswagen Group - the current owners of the firm - although further details are yet to be revealed.

This vehicle will feature seven seats for carrying passengers comfortably and even without the specific dimensions, we can possibly guess the expected size of this vehicle. Bentley is known to design exclusively luxurious vehicles and its customers usually belong to the high societies. This as a result forces us to think, whether the owners are actually going to use the third row of seats on this SUV.

Bentley is expected to launch a five seated version of this vehicle as well even though the decision is currently being taken by the higher authorities. The company is also expected to provide a plug in hybrid drive rain into the car although these are just rumors at the moment. This SUV is expected to feature all the important abilities of the recently unveiled Continental GT, Bentley's current flagship and there should be no compromise in refinement, quality or performance.

Bentley does not manufacture sports cars, even though the company claims that their Continental GT is a sports coupe. The vehicle is aerodynamic and powerful but its weight prevents it from handling like it should. A smaller 4.0 liter V8 engine should power its base priced model, even though this should pack in decent amounts of power as well.

British engineering coupled with European luxuries define Bentley and hence aristocrats are usually fascinated by this company and its products. Even though Bentley is trying to break free from this image, most youngsters are in no mood to drive a Bentley. These cars are famous for being chauffeur driven although their first SUV has been designed to be self driven as well.

Driving a Bentley is always pleasurable while standards are expected to increase with the introduction of this vehicle. Even though its launch is some time off, this vehicle is drawing in a lot of positive attention. Coupled with facts that this is a first of its kind vehicle from Bentley, people want to get their hands on this car as soon as possible. Pre bookings are expected to start by 2015 while these vehicles should be delivered to the customers by early 2016.
