Bentley Plans to Launch Luxury SUV by 2016

Hopefully it's better looking than the concept

Bentley is known for making some incredibly luxurious automobiles that are also incredibly expensive. The luxury automaker has announced that it will be producing an SUV based on the EXP 9 F concept that debuted in 2012 Geneva auto show. I can be the only one that thinks that concept, pictured here, is hideous.

Bentley plans to invest about $1.2 billion to build the first SUV to come from the company. The model will be built at Bentley's Crewe, UK headquarters. The automaker plans to have the SUV on the market by 2016.

As with any vehicle they saw concept car changes between the concept and the production vehicle are expected to be significant. Hopefully, it won't be so ugly when it actually rolls into dealer showrooms.

The Bentley Flying Spur is a potent symbol of status and wealth. Even $100,000 luxosedans seem a pale imitation of the Spur's quiet opulence. Square foot by square foot, it has as much hand-finished wood and hand-stitched leather as any vehicle on the planet, a perfect companion to its stately presence. Dri ...

Volkswagen Promotes Its Electric Cars
Bentley has dropped another teaser of its upcoming luxury SUV. Billed by Bentley as “a vehicle designed from the outset to take luxury to new heights and change forever the way the world sees the SUV,” it still doesn’t have a name and the new video admittedly doesn’t reveal much, but still gives us a good idea of what we can expect. Bentley’s first teaser revealed elements of the front end, including a grille and headlights in line with the Continental GT models. The ...
