The 2017 Bentley Bentayga will be the most expensive SUV in the U.S. with a base price of $229,000, NBC News reported.
It's being billed as "the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious, most exclusive SUV in the world." Add the long list of accessories and some buyers are likely to double that figure. An optional Breitling clock alone is listed at $160,000.
Within the next few years, the world's most exclusive automotive manufacturers will be launching SUVs of their own, including the likes of Lamborghini, Aston Martin and even Rolls-Royce. Even as U.S. auto sales surge to record levels, the market share of so-called light trucks, including pickups, minivans and SUVs, has also climbed to an all-time high. The shift is happening at every price level, from entry level to the market's most rarefied segments.
