Bentley Bentayga owners will probably never take the model off-road but that hasn't stopped the company from releasing a new teaser video which shows the luxurious crossover can tackle more than the streets of downtown Los Angeles.

Filmed in a mountainous location, the teaser video shows the Bentayga traveling up a steep dirt road with relative ease.  The clip also reveals the crossover doesn't have an underbody protection, so it's probably wise to avoid Moab.

Set to be unveiled later this year, the Bentayga is expected to feature a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine as well as a new twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 TSI that produces 608 PS (600 bhp / 447 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque.  A plug-in hybrid variant is also scheduled to join the lineup in 2017.
