2020 Aston Martin DBX Specifications
The 2020 DBX will pioneer the same engine as the DB11 and the Vantage, 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine borrowed exclusively from Mercedes-AMG. This V-8 will be an All Alloy construction with an output of 542 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The new beast will be fully constructed with bonded aluminum making it light and stiff.
The company claims a 0-62mph time of 4.5 seconds. An all-electric and hybrid model is also expected to be followed down the road. Although DBX is a tenth-second slower than its rival but pretty quick for a midsize SUV, it’s also equipped with an all-wheel-drive system with an active center differential and an electronic rear limited-slip differential. It comes with a four-door body with lifted ride height, uncommon features for a supercar manufacturer. Air springs and adaptive dampers will be standard across all the variants.
The DBX will ride on Triple volume air suspension together with a 48-volt anti-roll control system and electronic adaptive dampers for a comfortable suspension system. The dampers can raise and lower by a length of 3.7inches, making it decorous for all sorts of terrain. For instance, if you are driving on a bumpy road, the suspension will increase the car by 1.8 inches. The car can tow 5940 pounds, and its roof rack can brace about 220 pounds despite a panoramic glass standard length roof.
The DBX is a five-seater crossover that provides a luxury experience for every occupant. Aston Martin completely redesigned the dashboard layout to make room for a bigger screen as compared to DB11 and DBS. The A/C vents and controls for ignition are relocated, moving them at the bottom and top, respectively. The vents have been made thinner to give it a completely modern look. The display is sized at 10.25 inches, a bit smaller than standard 12 inches, luxury industry standard.
The DBX offers industry-leading legroom and headroom with a centrally placed console that provides storage flexibility below and a beautifully sculpted section. Options list (Q by Aston Martin) provides the user an option to machine the console from a wood piece. It comes with pre-installed Apple CarPlay and a 360-degree camera as a technology standard.
It also comes with a world-class luggage room of 22.3 cubic feet (space behind second-row seats) a bit more than Bentley Bentayga. It also features a 40:20:40 split-folding bench to grow space beyond 50 cubic feet. Thanks to its narrow sill and wide opening, you can easily fit golf bags and ski equipment all in its trunk. It also provides additional options to opt for boot warmer with a snow package and a portable washer with a pet package.
The DBX will surely offer driver-assistance technology, but for now, the full roster is yet to be known. It is not yet crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway-Safety(IIHS). Aston Martin exclusive 2020 DBX will be covered with limited warranty covers of 3 years or unlimited miles. While offering No complimentary scheduled maintenance, it can opt at an extra cost.
