Bentley teases new SUV with cryptic desert-themed film

Let’s be honest: this video is mostly sand.

For those who are anticipating Bentley’s upcoming SUV as much as we are, though, any information is good information.

The British brand’s latest SUV teaser was just released, and it displays the new model’s signature grill shape, bold rear end, and sloping back window over a cryptic desert background. At times, you can even see the familiar quad-headlight design from the Continental, so rest assured that this mysterious people-carrier is in fact a Bentley.

The ad’s caption reads, “In the eyes of Bentley, the SUV is not just supremely capable in any environment, it is also supremely comfortable – and with new vistas on the world, you will see through new eyes.”

The crossover will reportedly ride on Volkswagen Groups’ MLB EVO platform, which underpins the Porsche Macan and Audi A8, and is expected to equip a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and a 6.0-liter W12.

Bentley hasn’t released performance specs for the SUV yet, but the V8 has produced anywhere from 500 horsepower on the Continental GT V8 to an enormous 572 hp on the race-inspired GT3-R. The larger W12 engine is capable of well over 600 ponies, as the 6.0-liter produces a whopping 626 horsepower on the aptly named Continental GT Speed.

Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a rumored plug-in hybrid variant is expected to arrive sometime in 2017.

The big Bentley will arrive in dealerships next year and is designed “to take luxury to new heights and change how you see the SUV.” It was recently spied testing on the world-famous Nurburgring.
