22 May The Bentley Bentayga is the Fastest SUV in the World
The Bentley Bentayga is capable of hitting 187 MPH. That’s fast. And if you didn’t know, that makes it the fastest SUV in the world. It has a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W-12 engine (yes, 12-cylinders) that puts out over 600 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. There’s an 8-speed Automatic Transmission with permanent AWD. 0-60 takes 4 seconds. That’s almost supercar speeds, and this thing weighs almost 5700 lbs.
Not only the Bentayga incredibly fast and powerful, but Bentley also claims that it is totally off-road capable, with an adjustable suspension and a line-up of four choices for off-road modes, in addition to the permanent AWD. There are no locking or limited-slip differentials, but the Bentayga does have individual brakes. In addition, there is Hill Descent Control, Bentley Dynamic Ride and a Driver Dynamics mode – which, in layman’s terms, improves rock crawling capabilities by splitting the anti-roll bar into two.
The interior has all the trimmings you would expect from a Bentley, with an 8” touch-screen infotainment system, piano-finished leather and panoramic tilt sunroof. There’s also built in WiFi.
And of course, price is also what you would expect from a Bentley – $231,825 MSRP. But hey…what other car lets you offroad in such luxury?
