Aston Martin DBX SUV nears end of development stage and ready for roll-out in December

As everyone in the motoring scene know by now, the Aston Martin’s very first SUV, the DBX, is nearing its final stage of development and ready for roll-out in December.

Previewed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the New Aston Martin DBX has been through a series of rigorous testing.

With extensive everyday real-world driving and high-performance track evaluation taking place at locations worldwide, including two key engineering centres at Silverstone and Nürburgring, the engineering and development teams have worked to ensure the broad dynamic capability required of DBX.

While conducting durability testing at the demanding Nürburgring race circuit, the DBX has delivered cornering speeds on par with the brand’s most focussed sportscar Vantage, while achieving braking figures greater than the marque’s Super GT, DBS Superleggera. This brutal combination of performance for an SUV has already seen Aston Martin’s engineering team regularly achieve sub 8-minute Nordschleife lap times during their regular testing regime.

Aston Martin DBX pre-release details

The Aston Martin DBX will feature a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, tuned to deliver the exhilaration of a modern GT. While recognizable from its application in the brand’s existing Vantage and DB11 sportscars, Preliminary data indicates the output of the V8-powered DBS with 550PS and 700Nm of torque. High speed testing has already proven DBX to repeatedly exceed 290 km/h (180mph), with final top speed and acceleration figures being set within the closing stages of the testing process.

With a focus on creating a broader, more solid acoustic note, DBX’s exhaust system has been tuned to reflect a deep bass with increasing mid-tones, creating true auditory exhilaration, particularly in more sporting drive modes.

Continued testing until December debut

DBX’s testing program continues apace in the coming monhs. The brand continues to hone the powertrain credentials and a dynamic setup that will help make this the most exciting SUV on the market, as it is intended to be.
