2018 Bentley Bentayga New Engine Options Just Months Away

By  | 

We know that Bentley is not done with the Bentayga yet and now it looks like we might be seeing more as early as mid-2018.

AutoMotorUndSport reported that Bentley is looking to launch a few more variants of the Bentley Bentayga next year with one of them being a V8 petrol powered model. According to the report, the vehicle could be powered by a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine, the same engine that is being offered to the Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Urus.

It was also added that besides the V8 engine, Bentley will also release a plug-in hybrid version that will include a 3.0-liter supercharged V8 engine and an electric motor. Based on what the Cayenne was offering with the same engine, we should expect to see at 410hp and 435lb ft of torque coming from the plug-in hybrid engine.

We can also expect to see a PHEV Bentayga in the future but no word on when that will be arriving.
