Aston Martin DBX SUV 2022. Aston Martin has announced the top version of the DBX, a bid for the world’s most powerful luxury SUV.

Aston Martin fans have been waiting for this since the debut of the DBX in November 2019, and now they finally waited — the crossover will get a truly powerful motor, worthy of the aristocratic brand image. The world premiere will take place on February 1.

Series production of the Aston Martin DBX started in summer 2020, after which sales of the British brand, which is in crisis, went up sharply; now the DBX accounts for more than half of Aston Martin’s sales.

The share of the crossover could be more, if it had been given more «horses».

In fact, now the DBX is offered in most countries of the world with Mercedes gasoline 4,0-liter «twin-turbo-eight» M177 with the maximum efficiency of 550 h.p. and 700 Nm.

As a whole, it is not bad, but there are more powerful crossovers in luxury segment: Bentley Bentayga Speed — 635 hp, Porsche Cayenne GT — 640 hp, Lamborghini Urus — 650 hp, Lister Stealth — 666 hp.

However, Lister can be called a product of tuning (it is made on the base of Jaguar F-Pace SVR), but in any case, all this SUV aristocracy was shamed in 2020 by a simple Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, which has 720 hp!

Ah, yes, there is also plug-in hybrid Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid with 680 hp.

Today, Aston Martin announced a new version of DBX, which it directly calls the most powerful luxury SUV in the world.

Hence, it is not necessary to count on competition with «hillbilly» Durango, but it is possible to expect not less than 650 hp, and better not less than 680, that the hybrid «upstart» from Germany knew his place too.

In theory, it is possible to speed up the engine M177 up to 900 hp, what, for example, Brabus does, but hardly british will want to take such height.

In the stock car at the moment, we repeat, 681 hp will be enough to justify the title of the most powerful model in its segment.

Meanwhile, tuners already offer boosted versions of the Aston Martin DBX with capacity over 800 hp.

In particular, German ateliers Mansory and DMC, and the company Aston Martin in November of the last year, on the contrary, went on decrease and made for China exclusive DBX Straight Six with a 3,0-liter in-line 6-cylinder Mercedes engine M256 (435 hp and 520 Nm) and soft-hybrid extras.

There will be no 6-cylinder DBX in other countries.

Betting on the customer engines Mercedes-Benz made not from good life — just their motors Aston Martin today can not afford and even «wrapped» almost ready for production of a new 3.0-liter V6 TM01 of its own development.

Together with the boosted M177, the top-end Aston Martin DBX (it will probably be marked with the letter S) will get a refined chassis, more powerful brakes and cosmetic upgrade, but there are no details yet — we are waiting for the beginning of February.
