Bentley Plans to Launch Luxury SUV by 2016

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.
