(By Tom Lohnes) – The new Bentley Bentayga is here and it is quite expensive. With a refresh this year, the new-for-2017 model year Bentley SUV has some tricks up its sleeve.
The Bentley Bentayga is easily one of the most exclusive and expensive SUVs in existence. With a starting price of just over $200,000, this big Bentley packs a punch. The new Bentayga has two engine options: a 4.0-liter Twin-Turbo V8 found in literally every Performance Audi with a number above 5 in the name as well as the Lamborghini Urus, which is apparently a “Super SUV”.
The second, (and best) engine option is a monster: A 6.0-liter Twin-Turbo W12 with 626 horsepower and 738-pound feet of torque. This beast of an engine puts its immense power to all Four wheels through an 8-speed automatic. 0-60 for this 6,500-pound boat is 3.8 seconds and the top speed is a massive 192 MPH. The Bentayga seats 4 or 5 people and is only fitted with the finest hides and materials any car can have.
This big boat is sure expensive and kind of ugly, but its performance makes up for it, at least to me. Dad says I can’t get that large an advance on my allowance.
