Rolls-Royce SUV Coming 2017

by on May.14, 2014, under Auto Review Specs

Company sources have revealed the Rolls-Royce SUV project is underway with the finished article expected no later than 2017. That`s according to Autocar who, when speaking with design boss, Giles Taylor, was told that the designers are currently at the sketch stage of the process. Taylor said: `I`m interested in function and functionality. I`m looking to create a properly functional vehicle-a shooting brake, not a crossover with a sloping roof. A proper SUV.`

 

Described as `a kind of Mercedes GLK-plus-plus,` the Rolls-Royce SUV will arrive on the market slightly behind the new Bentley SUV, as luxury carmakers continue their assault on the ever-growing Chinese market that have an insatiable thirst for Sports Utility Vehicles.

Where previous reports suggested the new SUV would be based on the upcoming BMW X7`s underpinnings, it is now understood a new architecture made of steel, aluminum and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic-previewed by the BMW Vision Future Luxury concept in Beijing-will form its basis as well as a future Ghost and potential 9 Series.
