The Aston Martin DBX debuts this December, but here’s a little teaser. The first teaser came out two months ago with a short video of the crossover tearing up a dirt road with a majestic sunset in the background. Last month, Aston Martin released the DBX driving up the hill at Goodwood. This teaser is a preview of Aston Martin’s infamous styled grille. The video opens like a Bond escapade, and is captioned, “Aston Martin’s first SUV features the iconic DB grille.”
The DBX is built on the same engineering as the DB11 called Second Century Architecture. The SCA will also carry the Lagonda’s future lineup of electric vehicles. The vehicle will be powered by the same Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 found in the DB11 and Vantage. Rumors say to expect 503 horsepower and 516 lb-feet of torque from the charge, similar to what the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe puts out. Aston Martin mentions in passing the towing capacity of the DBX compared to the GLC 63 with 3,500 pounds.
Aston Martin is set to officially reveal the DBX in December, with deliveries arriving in early 2020. The DBX will be produced at their factory in St. Athan, Wales. Currently, Aston Martin has quoted 5,000 units to be produced. Last weekend, the automaker opened the order book at Pebble Beach. Selling all 5,000 units would double the company’s annual sales.
