About two years back, Aston Martin was struggling. Now, the brand has rebuilt itself, and a good chunk of the credit goes to its DBX SUV, which has opened new paths of success. Now, Aston Martin wants to double down on that success. It just announced a high-performance version of the DBX SUV and claimed it would be the World’s Most Powerful SUV.

Right now, the DBX SUV has a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine, and it is likely the high-performance variant will have the same. However, it is also possible that Aston Martin will replace it with a 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V12.


The current DBX SUV provides 405kW and 700Nm of torque which is lower than other powerful posh SUVs like the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid that puts out 500kw and 900Nm. However, if Aston Martin is not competing with hybrids, it likely wants to compete with the Lamborghini Urus that puts out 478kW and 850Nm of torque.


Aston Martin is making the most of an opportunity presented by other carmakers. Other carmakers are so involved in creating electrified vehicles that they don’t pay much attention to gas-powered vehicles. The British manufacturer is delaying that change and wants to stay afloat by investing in more gas-powered haulers.

The new DBX SUV will perform well in sales too. The previous DBX SUV has been in production for just two years, and still, it has become the best-selling car of the brand. It accounted for 51% of the marque sales in Q3 of 2021.


According to reports, the new SUV will be a looker, too, as the style has been emphasized when creating this beauty. It is expected to be named DBX S, and Aston Martin will start selling it later this year as a 2023 model. When reporters reached out to the company for more details on pricing and release in Australia, one of their executives stated that nothing would be shared before the reveal. So, all we can do is imagine the magnificence of the world’s most powerful SUV.
