Is the Rolls-Royce SUV Still Coming?

The Rolls-Royce SUV hype is going on for quite a while and it seems it’s here to stay for a very long time. Whether the British company is really planning a luxury SUV or not we still don’t know, but new rumors keep pouring in.

The latest piece of information on the subject comes from Automobile, who claims that the Rolls-Royce SUV will be green-lighted for production depending on BMW X7’s success. X who? Oh yeah, the BMW X7 is also a rumor, but our source says it could underpin the aforementioned luxury SUV once it hits the market.

In addition, the unnamed and unconfirmed Rolls-Royce SUV could be propelled a plug-in hybrid drivetrain and a twin-turbo V8 engine, a bit awkward for a company that relies 100 percent on V12 power.

Until Rolls-Royce decided whether to build their first ever SUV or not, we’ll be seeing such vehicles coming from automakers like Bentley, Maserati and Lamborghini, who have already confirmed their future SUVs.
