Bentley, a company generally known for its palatial limousines and more recently for the GT coupe, is going to launch its own SUV soon. Why wait until 2015 to buy one? Because everybody else owns Cayennes and Range Rovers.
The production version of the EXP 9 F is likely also going to be the best place to look for craftsmanship and classic furniture-like trim pieces. That's a point Bentley are only too keen to make in yet another teaser video for their anticipated 2015 model. It shows superimposed images of the desert, the sext bodywork of the vehicle and the craftsmanship behind its construction.

The video also serves to further highlight the link between the British brand and its many Middle Eastern customers. This is a bond that will only strengthen once the Range Rover rival arrives nest year.

Its rumored name, Falcon, also serves as a hint to this, as keeping expensive birds of pray is a popular hobby among the Emirates' sheiks. "2015 will see the debut of a vehicle that has been years in the making. A vehicle designed from to take luxury to new heights and change how you see the SUV," Bentley claims.

Expected to be priced from £140,000, the Bentley SUV will share its platform with the next Audi Q7 and other VW Group big players that will follow. It's expected to have an optionally available hybrid powertrain and could be the biggest success the guys in Crewe have ever had. Bentley chairman and CEO confirmed Wolfgang Schreiber said at least 3,000 a year will be sold and a couple of thousand preorders already exist.

Amazing stuff, Bentley. But can we please see the SUV already?
