Aston Martin forays into the unknown with their latest luxury offering the DBX SUV. With this offering, Aston takes its first step into the future planned by the British luxury Marque. The company welcomed its first female president back in 2018 and has also previously announced its new design philosophy will be more feminine. While many were skeptical about the direction the company was taking, it is now becoming apparent what the company intended for its future. Aston Martin’s foray into a luxury brand will include a lot more products in their arsenal, extending to even Yachts and maybe even real-estate.

Engine 4.0-liter turbo V8 or the 5.2-liter turbo V12 (Expected)
Power 900 hp (Expected)

2020 Aston Martin DBX Exterior

True to Aston Martin’s heritage, the new DBX looks as good as any car with camouflage can possibly look. The silhouette is pretty distinct, much closer to Coupe styled SUVs than regular SUVs, and the shoulder line is pretty prominent as well, jutting out in a very muscular fashion. The taillights aren’t too great though, just four tiny circles, two on each side. One interesting detail though, as seen in the picture below, is that the exhaust pipe compliments the taillights, lending a very hexagonal design highlight.SUVs are becoming the craze nowadays, with many major Auto giants taking their first steps in this new direction, or returning after one attempt a long time ago (read Lamborghini LM002). Now, Lamborghini with their Urus, Maserati with the Levante, Rolls Royce with their Cullinan, and Aston Martin with their DBX, are all set to claim the roads for their own.

Aston officials have also revealed that the DBX has been built on an entirely new platform, as the SUV would require more strength and space for larger suspension and reinforcement. This is the only confirmed bit of information we currently have on offer. The rest is pure speculation.

2020 Aston Martin DBX Engine

The car could be powered by either the 4.0-liter turbo V8 or the 5.2-liter turbo V12 currently used in the rest of the Aston lineup. What would be an absolute blast though, is the 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine which will be used in the upcoming Valkyrie hypercar. The 1100+ horsepower engine would make this the most powerful production SUV on the planet, surpassing the 707 HP Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which is the current champion. Another possibility is of a hybrid vehicle, on which we have no spec speculations as of now.

Aston also stated that the Chief Engineer on the project took the prototype car for a run at Wales Rally, suggesting that the DBX isn’t just a vanity car, but one that can take the beaten path as well. Still, considering the target audience for the vehicle, it doesn’t seem like many owners would be willing to take it down the rough road.

2020 Aston Martin DBX Release

Aston’s SUV would go against premium SUVs like the Maserati Levante, Porsche Cayenne, and quite possibly even the Bentley Bentayga. The DBX will be produced at Aston Martin Lagonda’s new production facility at St. Athan, which will also produce their future electric offerings. The Aston Martin DBX will probably be offered in the market in late 2019 as a 2020 model.
