Bentley Bentayga/Bentayga EWB
NEXT STAGE: Addition in 2022
The 2023 Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase adds more than seven inches to the two-row crossover — all of it behind the front row of seats — giving it what the brand says is the "best rear-cabin experience since the Mulsanne."
The larger Bentayga will be outfitted with new 22-way adjustable seats that feature "postural adjustment technology" as well as defined modes for relaxing and business. In relax mode, for instance, the rear seat reclines up to 40 degrees, and a footrest emerges from the rear of the front passenger seat. The seats, Bentley says, "can apply 177 individual pressure changes across six fully independent pressure zones over a three-hour period" to improve comfort and reduce fatigue.
Powered by the brand's 4.0-liter turbocharged V-8 and eight-speed automatic transmission, the longer Bentayga will be equipped with an all-wheel steering system, giving it a much smaller turning radius than the shorter Bentayga.
Bentley said it anticipates about 45 percent of Bentaygas sold annually will be the longer version. The 2023 Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is expected to arrive in the U.S. later in 2022.
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2023
The Bentayga, available with a V-6 plug-in hybrid powertrain, V-8 or W-12, isn't due for a freshen until 2023.
