Aston Martin’s DBX has been a big hit, and the company is planning to capitalize on that in a very big way
By the end of 2021, the company will introduce a new DBX with a mild-hybrid powertrain comprised of a 3.0-liter straight-six and a nine-speed automatic transmission. It could be geared toward performance or fuel economy, but our money is on performance.
In an interview with Motor Trend, Aston CEO, Tobias Moers, confirmed
that 2022 will birth a high-performance DBX, but it won’t bear the AMR badge: we're not going to use AMR as a brand because there is no need for a sub-brand because Aston Martin is a performance brand.”
Beyond this, there will be 5 or 6 different versions of the DBX by 2024. According to Moers, Aston Martin needs “different body styles, more bang-on performance, a more aggressive body style,
things like that.”
Does this mean that there will be a DBX Coupe akin to that of the Mercedes GLC Coupe, BMW X6, or Porsche Cayenne Coupe? Moers says “you can think about being more luxurious, spacious, and you can think about being more sporty.”
So, Moers hasn’t confirmed a DBX Coupe, but it certainly seems like it’s within the real of possibility, and it would make a lot of sense given how much that niche has grown in the last decade.
