(USA Today) – Rolls-Royce has confirmed the previously unthinkable: It’s going to build an SUV.

And not just any SUV, but one that is off-road capable — or as Rolls put it: “able to cross any terrain.” It is sure to be one of the world’s most expensive vehicles, one that’s long and tall, not boxy, per se. Yet Rolls vowed it is going to be true to the brand, all the way down to the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. It will be built on a new chassis.

Confirmation of the new vehicle came in an “open letter” from CEO Torsten Muller-Ötvos that never actually calls it an SUV. Rather it is called “a high-bodied car with an with an all-aluminum architecture.” Rolls officials are adamant, but won’t elaborate: It’s fair to call it an SUV, but it won’t be considered a truck.

No pictures or renderings are being shown and the model is expected to be years away from deliveries. One possible name: the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
