Is The Bentley EXP SUV A Great Idea Or The Greatest Idea?

Stephen Colbert used to ask liberals if George W. Bush was a "great president" or "the greatest president" as sort of a taunt. A few days ago, Bentley unveiled the Bentley EXP 9 F SUV concept-soon-to-be-production-model. So now, car fans, we ask you: Is the Bentley SUV a great idea or the greatest idea?

Among other issues coming out of the Geneva Motor Show, we're to contemplate one of the great signifiers of our age: the luxury sport-utility vehicle, especially when sold by a traditionally non-truck manufacturer. Purists loathe them, marketers adore them, and we want to know what you think about them. Namely: Can you come up with a compelling argument about why this thing should really be the next Bentley?

Really, we want to know. Please enlighten us. Justify its existence — if you can.
