What a perfect match, the association of Bentley and Stetson. Both companies have incredible heritage, one in automobiles and the other in cowboy hats. Both have been in the business for over a century. Bentley made its name in racing, while Stetson continues to supply the finest cowboy hats in the industry. Stetson, an iconic American brand since 1865, has been worn by cultural icons, from Buffalo Bill Cody to Ronald Reagan to Waylon Jennings.
The unveiling of the Bentley Bentayga Stetson Edition in Garland, Texas in mid-September started with a tour of the Stetson factory. While the Bentley Bentayga Stetson Edition is a very capable off-road vehicle and can tow over 7,000 pounds, buyers probably won’t be trading in their Ram 3500s for it. But for a western take on luxury, the Bentayga Stetson is hard to beat. The Stetson special edition costs just under $250,000, and comes in a white sand exterior with interior colors of camel main hide, saddle secondary hide and burnt oak accents. Beyond the first, shown to media at the Stetson plant, only two more will arrive in Texas – the second in October and a third in November. And as you might guess, this is an unparalleled experience for the horse set. Top speed is 180 mph (way faster than Trigger), while 0-60 mph can be attained in but 4.4 seconds. There’s 568 lb-ft of torque at just 1,960 rpm from the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, along with 542 horsepower – or put another way, over 500 Triggers.
Cowboys can customize any Bentley Bentayga through Bentley’s personalized Mulliner team with an unlimited array of options. You can feel the luxury and quality, and the design is exceptional. The Bentley Bentayga Stetson is available at Bentley of Dallas, a Park Place dealership, and nowhere else. Pilgrim.
