Bentley recently came out with their very first SUV, the Bentayga, and in traditional Bentley fashion it is both the fastest and most expensive SUV that is on the market. We don't know a whole lot about the Jeep Trackhawk so far, but from what we do know, it seems like the Trackhawk could be a challenger to the Bentayga. Bentley will definitely not beat beat on its luxury as Jeep isn't going to be installing a gold plated clock any time soon, but when it comes to speed and off-road ability Jeep may unseat Bentley.
Let's start with the Bentley Bentayga. It has debuted billing itself as the "world's fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV ever." And right now that is entirely true. The Bentayga is powered by a 600 hp 6.0L W12 engine that gets the SUV going from 0-100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds. That does make it the fastest and most powerful. When it comes to luxury, there is so much that it is a little ridiculous. A champagne fridge in the trunk, the option of seven different varieties of dead tree and 15 shades of naturally tanned bull hide, and the Mulliner Tourbillon by Breitling clock (made from gold with eight diamonds in the face).
So the Bentley Bentayga is an opulent, fast and impressive vehicle, but Jeep is going to be challenging it for a few of the titles that it currently holds. The Jeep Trackhawk's engine will claim it the title of world's fastest most powerful SUV. The Trackhawk's 707 hp 6.2L supercharged V8 Hellcat engine overtakes the Bentayga's engine by over 100 hp.
It will also take the title of world's fastest SUV. The Trackhawk is reported to be able to go from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds. That is 0.6 seconds faster than the Bentley Bentayga!
A final way that the Trackhawk will overtake the Bentley Bentayga is in the off-road capability arena. I suspect that Jeep will make sure its Trackhawk will still be extremely capable when it comes to off-raoding. That is what it means to be a Jeep. The Bentayga is also quite capable though. Bentley says that "the Bentayga's eight on- and off-road drive settings make it one of the most versatile vehicles in the world, and that its exclusive Responsive Off-Road Setting makes it as, or more, capable on dirt than almost any other truck."
So the Bentley Bentayga debuted as the "world's most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV ever," but it appears that Jeep will ensure that some of those titles will be quite short lived.
