Bentley’s CEO has announced that the upcoming Bentley SUV will feature a V12 engine. Awesome!
Speaking with Autocar, Bentley CEO Durheimer said: “We will be first to use a 12-cylinder gasoline engine in a luxury SUV. I like this idea; it makes clear whose car is the boss.”
It won’t just be any 12-cylinder engine, either. Bentley is likely to be using a new-generation W-12 currently in development.
Additionally, the new SUV should also spawn Bentley’s first diesel model, picking up a new V-12 TDI engine that’s also reportedly in development.
