Apparently, the future Aston Martin’s DBX is their plan for long-term survival. And when long-term survivals are considered, we all know what it means – build a Crossover/SUV model and hope for the best. But if you recall, the British car maker showed a prototype for such vehicle back in 2015 at the Geneva motor show.

The look and the platform

This, of course, is a huge thing for this tiny company, that is by the way used to build only sporty, glued-to-the-ground type coupes. And to make the situation worse, they only sell around 4,000 such units per year globally. So naturally, the 2020 DBX is their ticket to glory. When they firstly started thinking about the DBX they thought about putting it on the Mercedes-Benz platform in respect to the tie-up between the companies. But, as things went further they decided to keep things in-house and use a reworked version of their new component set (appeared under the new DB11 coupe). It is fair to expect that the company will make the most of it from aluminum and that they will scrap the concept’s two-door coupe-like look in favor of the four-door version which can actually fit people in the back.

Powertrain

As far as the powertrain is considered, we can expect that by the 2022 Aston will offer a fully electric version of the DBX that won’t debut with the vehicle but will eventually arrive (possibly a few years after it launches). At the introduction, the most valid candidate to power this thing will be a Mercedes-sourced V8 unit, while the rest of the engine lineup is unknown, but as time passes we hope for more info on the topic.

As far as competition goes, the 2020 Aston Martin DBX will stack up against the likes of Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, and even Tesla Model X. It will have a tough task, but since the company has a good pedigree and reputation, we believe that it will be able to carry it easily. The only thing that could go wrong is tied to the design department. If you recall, the Benz SUV concept called the Lagonda, which was shown at the 2009 Geneva Show, had that ugly, bloated front end that nobody found appealing at all. Well, our main concern is that that same or slightly altered “face” might end up on the future DBX. That wouldn’t be cool at all!

2020 Aston Martin DBX  Release Date

As we managed to find out Aston has already dove into the work in their production facility in Wales, and if all goes according to plan, it will hit the dealerships sometime in early 2022. As far as it comes to the price, well expect somewhere between the Model X and Bentayga, meaning around $225,000.

My name is Miloš Kalajdžić and I come from Brčko DC in Bosnia. I was born on July 20 th 1988 and so far I obtained a BSc in economics and one year of working experience in my field of study. I am a very hard-working person who leaves nothing unfinished and halfway done. When I commit to something I give my best to make sure that everything is done the way as it is supposed to be. I like cars and everything that comes with them. My passion are American muscle cars, but unfortunately the closest I managed to come near one is behind my laptop watching an image of the new Chevy or Dodge and writing about it. But that’s ok I’m still optimistic. When I’m not behind the laptop writing I’m on the streets and auto shows admiring all stuff rolling on four wheels being propelled by a petrol engine!
