Rumor: Bentley SUV One Step Closer to Production?
Bentley and its idea of luxury SUV has been going on from years but it seems like the luxury carmaker has no intention to bring the vehicle into production form. Well, that is about to change folks as Bentley is closing the 2011 with hefty increase sales numbers and somehow, its magically pop out the idea that they should produce the SUV model which who knows it might increase the upcoming sales target.
Folks, here this: autoevolution.com reported that the move of producing the Bentley SUV is becoming closer and closer. The Wall Street Journal also reported that the sales increase has brought back Bentley’s profit after two years below the target line. So, if the luxury carmaker doesn’t want to go to through another moment of below the target line, then they have to increase their selling by proposing new models.
Now, creating SUV that carries not only the luxury signature of Bentley, but also outstanding performance is pretty much complicated. If the project is granted by the board of directors, then this SUV will be joining the premium SUV class with hefty price tag. Our aforementioned source predicted that the US price for the Bentley SUV could reach as expensive as $140,000 or around €107,000.
Then again, the final decision of Bentley SUV is on VW Group’s hands because Bentley is part of the German automaker empires. We predict that if the Bentley comes alive, the SUV could be equipped with four-wheel drive and some imported technical parts as well.
